Typically, President Bush tries to remain silent on future politics and issues of the 2008 Presidential campaign. He even had a personal rule against stating his views. But he finally gave in and expressed his opinion that Hilary Clinton will probably beat Obama in the primaries and end up receiving the Democratic nominee. However, Bush also believes that the Republicans can beat her in the actual Presidential Race.
Bush says that Clinton can win the primaries because of her "great national presence". She also has the available funds in order to run a good campaign. It will be difficult for the Republicans, but Bush thinks they can do it.
Bush also gave his opinions on the Republican nominees. He is surprised that Giuliani is still the frontrunner thus far because he says that Giuliani has some liberal tendancies in areas such as social and cultural issues. But, the fact that Giuliani is so popular so far shows just how much Republicans care about the terrorism issue.
The final comment from President Bush was that Republicans should not give up on Arizona Senator John McCain. He had some difficulty earlier this year, but he has been able to revive the campaign recently.
