    Either of those will get beat.

    I think the odds are against us regardless of the candidate but they certainly have a better chance than most of the alternatives.

    If Repub Congressional leadership performs well then the Repubs may be surprisingly strong in the POTUS race.

    He would have made a better president then Obama...however I disagree that he would have made a fine POTUS. I think the liberals in both parties would have owned him.

    State governors do tend to make better presidents. I like Walker because he has proven that he can take on the labor unions and liberals and win.

    I am hoping for a non-establishment populist conservative candidate.

    They will even assist him in the open primary states. They will set up cross party voting to assist him as they did McCain in 2008.
