    Any way you cut it, the winner of a GOP primary nomination procedure loses in November. Both Huckabee and Trump knew that.

    the government has been issuing marriage licences since the founding. this is nothing new and it is nothing expansionary.

    see... you keep saying that, but other than hyperventilating about the Ryan plan you never demonstrate it....

    I know its nothing new. I'm simply saying that the Full Faith and Credit clause combined with the special privileged of marriage should require states to apply these rules equally to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation. If they aren't applied equally, then thats supporting gov interfering in people's private lives.

    Really? Who has the GOP got that can win in the general election? The only one that has a shot is Romney and he may not even make it past the extremist base in the primary.

    Mitch Daniels. If he runs, he can actually give Obama a run for his money.

    I couldn't care less. Frankly, I don't think he's presidential material, anyhow.

    I bet you will set Mitch Daniels as well as Jeb Bush opt to stay out of this one.

    Anyone with Bush in their name would be wise to stay out it. If Mitch doesn't run, the repubs have no chance.
