Publisher Steve Forbes say Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will win the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.
"Even though the media will try to portray it as a race, I believe that Hillary Clinton is going to win it," Forbes said at a business lunch in Singapore, according to Agence France-Presse.
"She's got a formidable war chest ... she also has the best political adviser, one William Jefferson Clinton, who has a lot of appeal still with the base of the party," said Forbes, who ran for president as a Republican nomination in 1996 and 2000,
Forbes also predicted that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his predecessor, Republican Rudy Giuliani, will battle Hillary for thefor the GOP nomination.
"I think you will have Mr. Giuliani, Mrs. Clinton and then there is a third candidate and the current mayor of New York ... a man named Michael Bloomberg," Forbes said.
Bloomberg quit the Republican Party in June, sparking immediate speculation he was plotting an independent White House bid. He has denied he is planning to enter the race for the White House.
