As many of you know there has been much speculation as to whether there will be a Presidential contest as Michael D's first term draws to a close. Some hats have been thrown in the ring. What chance do posters think that John Waters might have.

He's got the endorsement of David Quinn of Iona. Miriam has said she will not run and Bertie Ahern flew a kite on it. So could it be the time for John Waters.

Michael D is now 77. Can he go another term and would he have a realistic change against the likes of John Waters. According to the Indo FG do not want Michael D to step down. But might they change their minds if they had someone of the calibre of John Waters?

I haven't registered to stand and have no intention of doing so. There is more chance of me getting the job even with those two caveats than Waters getting it.

Sweet Divine Lord.

I've yet to hear one name that hasn't made me shudder.

(With the exception of MDH who just makes me groan inwardly.)

So you'd vote for anybody but Michael D. Do you think then that Waters would have a good chance? How would you like it if Bertie ran? He's a superb politician even if many are cross with him.

Quinn would support any of the half-men, whether they are spoiled priests or not.

John Waters' campaign song complete with extra archipelagic icicles:

A chap who can come up with the phrase like "archipelagic icicles" is infinitely more creative than the little pseudo-intellectual Frontline president. :)

The presidential candidates need to be opened up to candidates of Irish origin the way the national football team was by Jack Charlton all those years ago. Especially in the USA, a candidate who has demonstrated great support of Ireland over their lifetime and is suited to the role as a figurehead (as opposed to the traditional FF approach of just one more job for the boys, and yes that obviously includes chancers like Sean Gallagher), another good preference would be for one of the many Irish men and women who have given their lives in service of the Church in poor parts of the world, developing better social services in India, Africa, Bangladesh, it is from such exemplary characters that we should find our next President, bring them home to remind the world of our traditional values and beliefs here that a hateful media seems determined to make people forget

I'd say Michael Lowry would have a better chance of election than Waters.

I would happily pick out my eyeballs slowly and piece by excruciatingly painful piece with a soft paper-clip before I'd see the likes of John Waters as President of the Republic of Ireland!
