Obama-Biden have done fairly well in their four years. Events:

How about Washington Monument instead of White House Lawn? Just seems a bit more likely.

Also, how'd gas hit $1? Lets go for $2 first.

For the Dems, a fringe candidate will run on a "stop invading countries" line, like a Kucinich

For GOP, Huckabee is certainly possible, Perry might be a little more of a stretch. More likely Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Tim Pawlenty

If we're in the 2nd Great Depression, a couple economic candidates are likely. Maybe Corzine for the Dems, or Bloomberg as an indy?
