I hope Palin wins the nomination, I think the dems would like to run against her. If I had to have a repub pres., Romney or Pawlenty may not be too bad. Depending on what they say in the next 18 months, I might even vote for one of them. Obama has to begin talking about fiscal responsibility in a reasonable way, and doing reasonable things to move in that direction. Obama also needs to say when we are going to get out of Afghanistan.
The main reason I would consider NOT voting for a repub president is that the tea partiers have so many religious fundamentalists and I do not believe the bible should be substituted for the constitution. If that's the way you want to run your church, fine. Don't try to run our govt. that way.
