Who will run against Obama?

About five years ago, sections of the American media speculated that the election battle for the US Presidency could be an all-female affair: Hillary Clinton for the Democrats and Condoleezza Rice for the Republicans. In the event, neither was a candidate.

We seem to be in a similar state of excitement now in parts of the American establishment. There is speculation that this November’s race could be an all-black affair: Barack Obama of course for the Democrats and Herman Cain for the Republicans.

Herman Cain?!? If you’re not American, you’ve probably never heard of him. That’s not surprising since he’s never been elected to anything. But that’s not stopping some in the Republican Party considering the possibility of his candidature as you can read here.

Personally, I reckon that Mitt Romney will be the Republican candidate and that Barack Obama will win (I certainly hope so).
