With all that's happening in the world, it may not be too far-fetched to think about the presidential election in 2008. Hillary Clinton and Joseph Biden, our two Democratic stalwarts, are potential candidates being talked about.

Since health care is bound to be a major issue as it has been for many elections, why not an election between two physicians, Republican Senator Bill Frist, majority leader of our U.S. Senate, who is a physician by trade, and Howard Dean, Democrat, also a physician by trade, who is current chairman of the Democratic Party.

It would be an interesting election, possibly more interesting than the 15 presidential elections I have been witness to in my years of life. Health care, among other issues, would probably dominate the debate. Whichever candidate won the election, his brand of health care, along with his prescription for solving our nation's other problems, could prevail.

A 2-physician campaign for the presidency would be an interesting event?#34;perhaps with a better outcome for America than a 2-lawyer, 2-businessman or too-trained-politician election that has been the domination outcome of our political system for too long.
