    It wouldn't be my choice, but you never know, they did nominate McCain, and everyone I know......they thought this old white guy didn't have a chance in hell! Personally, I voted for Barr, but it is Palin that even gave McCain a chance to win, if not for her, Obama would have won in a landslide!

    I think there was a lot of excitement about her when she was new and no one really knew much about her. However, after being exposed to the limelight for some time, I think people have figured her out. As such, currently she would be a determent. If the GOP wants to compete, they need to go the traditional conservative route without the religious craziness. They need a new Nixon, one not as paranoid who would spy on the DNC, but one capable of international relations, who can get us out of the wars, and can focus on American prosperity and needs.

    I agree, I see either Romney or Pawlenty rising to the top. If they decide to go with Huckabee, I think they will lose, as people are really tired of the far right religious groups. These people are as bad as the far left loons, they all want to control our lives, and most americans just want to be left alone, period!

    I don't like Romney because he's just not honest with his political platform. You never get the sense that you know what he's about. Huckabee couldn't win, and I don't think he would want to run again. I think he found the golden ticket. If you are a political commentator, you can run your mouth as much as you want and very few people will be terribly critical of you. It's why you wouldn't see Hannity or Rush run for public office. Why take the pay cut and the added stress and criticism? I think the GOP may have to reach down into its pockets and find the people the previous neo-cons had discarded. The actual conservatives who will act to limit government.

    given the climate at the time, i'm not sure reagan could have beat obama. the country clearly wanted a new face that looked nothing like george bush. dragging palin with him was mccain's desperate play for "the base".....but even that didn't work.

    i was watching haley barbour refuse to say palin was qualified to be potus the other evening, and realized probably 99% of the republican powers think that although she draws crowds, she's not presidential material.

    What? Reagan could beat Obama hands down. People want to talk about Obama and charisma....Ronald Reagan had that extruding from his very person. No one, not even Clinton, could talk to the People the way Reagan could.

    Oh Huckabee is running, don't kid yourself. As for a conservative in the party, there are some, a very few, but they had better start soon, as they are not well known at all.

    Indeed, there will not be another like him for some time, but we sure could use that man right now.

    That's the route to go though, someone not quite as prominent. Maybe take a look at governors. I always liked taking the President from State governor positions as the governor is an executive job, taking out of the Congress maybe doesn't have the best of all outcomes.
