Looking Ahead to Campaign 2008

Knoxville (WVLT) - As Campaign 2006 comes to an end, we're getting a few hints about what you'll see in 2008.

Tom Vilsack, the outgoing Governor of Iowa, filed the papers to run for President in 2008.

He had been on a short list to be John Kerry's running mate in 2004.

He's the first Democrat to formally declare a run for the Presidency in 2008.

Vilsack is planning a multi-state tour to start the end of this month.

And US Senator Bill Frist of Tennessee may have a difficult time convincing folks here that he would make a good President.

Associated Press exit polls from Tuesday showed 44-percent said he would not make a good President, while 37 percent said yes. 19 percent didn't answer.
