volcano bush erupts again


Hillary Clinton will win nomination, lose election, says Bush

Monday, September 24th 2007, 4:00 AM

Taking a stab at political prognostication, President Bush says in a new book that Sen. Hillary Clinton will score her party's nomination but won't win the White House.

In "The Evangelical President," due to be released tomorrow, Bush says the former First Lady's name recognition and fund-raising skills are a formidable combo for upstart Sen. Barack Obama to overcome.

"She's got a national presence, and this is becoming a national primary," Bush tells conservative author Bill Sammon.

"And therefore the person with the national presence, who has got the ability to raise enough money to sustain an effort in a multiplicity of sites, has got a good chance to be nominated."

But the President said he is convinced he'll be turning over the reins of the White House to the Republican nominee.

"I think our candidate can beat her, but it's going to be a tough race," Bush told Sammon, a columnist for the Washington Examiner.

He said he plans to campaign vigorously for the Republican nominee.

"I truly think the Republicans will hold the White House," he said.

White House officials could not immediately confirm the quotes attributed to the President by Sammon, who has written three other favorable books on Bush and one titled "At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal the Election."

Bush's previous election predictions haven't always come to pass.

Last year, he chided the Democrats for prematurely "measuring the drapes" for their Capitol Hill offices, forecasting a "good day" for Republicans at the polls.

But the election couldn't have been worse for the GOP, as the party lost the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and Senate.
