Early Jockeying Required for 2008 Race

WASHINGTON — If you want to be the next president, it’s time to start running — unless your name is Hillary Rodham Clinton (search) or John McCain (search). They can wait. And wait, as front-runners tend to do.

“They’re 800-pound gorillas,” says Democratic consultant Jeff Link of Iowa. “They’re well-known, well-liked and will be heavy favorites in their respective parties.”

What does that mean for the other 15 or so Democrats and Republicans considering a 2008 bid? It’s time to get hustling. They have a limited window of opportunity to establish themselves as credible candidates before the early front-runners decide whether to seize center stage. (Fox News)
