The Next Head of State

The volatile political situation, growing dominance of the regional parties, social activism and vibrant media have changed the dynamics of the Presidential election. The countdown has begun and so have the parleys among the political parties. With general elections, just two years away, the national and regional parties are eager to get their permutations and combinations right. No new names have emerged so far, but we can't rule out surprises. Here's my list of probable personalities (not in order of probability or preference) for the top post:
Hamid Ansari
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Surjit Singh Barnala
M.S. Swaminathan
Somnath Chatterjee
Mohsina Kidwai

Well, we don't have shortage of capable personalities, so many names may emerge as the days go by.
