So with the novelty of seeing Clark at the top of every dKos Presidential poll wearing off, I thought it might be interesting to see who we'd hate to see running in 2008. No Democratic infighting please, think about Republican candidates.
Who would be your ultimate nightmare? Someone you think would have a real potential to win, maybe even a chance to completely wipe the floor with us. Who would it be? Who is the nightmare candidate we could be facing? Poll below the fold.

The poll is made up of names I've heard floating around, plus filled up with names from a recent CNN/Gallup poll.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
