It is likely that 2008 will be his last chance to become president. Should he fail to do so, he may choose to retire from politics at the end of his current Senate term. Possible Democratic contenders for McCain's open seat include Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Terry Goddard and 8th District Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. It is possible that wealthy real estate developer Jim Pederson, who unsuccessfully challenged Sen. Jon Kyl in 2006, may also be interested.
