Bush talk about 2008 elections

President Bush, breaking his rule not to talk about U.S. presidential politics, says he believes Hillary Rodham Clinton will defeat Barack Obama in Democratic presidential primary voting. Bush also predicts that Clinton will be defeated in the November 2008 general election by the Republican nominee. It has been difficult for Bush to remain silent about the 2008 president race, despite his promises not to be the "prognosticator in chief." He has been talking about the race and handicapping candidates during off-the-record chats with visitors to the White House. He finally went public with his Clinton prediction in an interview for a book by journalist Bill Sammon.
