FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Whoever wins tomorrow is going to be a very busy fellow. The size of the problems awaiting the victor is daunting and will take every ounce of energy and concentration he can muster. And it still might not be enough.

You can bet Americans will have high expectations of our next president. Of course after the last eight years, the bar isn't set very high.

Nevertheless, it's possible the tasks at hand could simply prove to be too much, which means in four years voters could be looking to make another change.

Ponder this: What if 2012 rolls around and McCain considers resigning after one term? Or Obama makes some huge mistake that makes a second term a long shot for him?

This campaign has been fun to watch, but the thing I have in mind would be off the charts. What if the next election saw Sarah Palin running against Hillary Clinton for president?

Palin said the other day, "I'm not doin' this for naught." And she's made it perfectly clear, especially to McCain's campaign, that she has other interests besides being vice president. Clinton almost didn't survive losing the nomination, and you can bet she would seize on getting another shot. It would be simply breathtaking!

Here’s my question to you: Who would win a fight between Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin in 2012?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Campaigning for Barack Obama in Ohio this weekend, Senator Hillary Clinton revised one of her "zingers" from the Democratic National Convention last month - "No way, no how, no McCain..."

Yesterday she added, "No Palin."

Clinton went on to criticize the McCain ticket but did not single out Governor Sarah Palin again in the speech.

Palin meanwhile hit the campaign trail solo in Colorado today.

She told voters there that she and John McCain were going to shake up Washington.

Watch: Cafferty: Who's more authentic?

Hindsight being what it is, some are questioning whether Barack Obama made a mistake when he chose senator Joe Biden instead of Hillary Clinton as his pick for vice president.

With the Sarah Palin phenomenon taking hold, these people now appear to have been prescient.

Here’s my question to you: Which woman has more credibility with the average American, Sara Palin or Hillary Clinton?
