    Two strong facts undermine Raila's Presidential bid in the next elections.

    Firstly the call for a clean fresh start is picking momentum fast. This would favor a much younger presidential candidate with a national appeal. Secondly in his enthusiasm he has made too many enemies to be able to get the consensus among his peers that he needs to stand for President. Raila likes to make decisions and has never sat on a fence in his life.

    If there is a person that deserves the presidency, then it is Raila Odinga. However it seems that sadly, fate is not on his side

    what do you mean fate is not on his side? did you have a look at the previous opinion polls on leadership? raila has a country wide appeal..yes raila is not young but i'd rather vote for Moi than vote for this excuses of young leaders that are being pimped to us. like I always say, Raila aint dumb, son is a political genius, to beat this kkk goons is quite easy, he only needs to pick a running mate with national appeal- read Peter Kenneth, the young man has no baggage, a good track record in development, no tribal burden, sharp, young and most importantly appeals to the youth in a big way.
