As many political hacks and weirdos tend to do these days, I've been wool-gathering on potential candidates in 2008. It's a question I'm asked frequently. Who do you think will run and who do you think can win?
These ponderings led me to an improbable tangential question.
Can you name the last election where neither and incumbent nor a Vice President ran?
It was 1928. Hoover vs. Al Smith.
It probably means nothing but it's just another thing in this upcoming cycle that's damned odd.
