    I'm just going to guess that his chances are at least a little better than Texas governor Perry's chances right now.

    However Perry's chances of ending up in jail have improved a lot lately.

    Politicians almost always do the exact opposite of what they run on. Why can't it work here for our advantage for once?
    Fortunately, every politician has in his political toolbox that trusty "political machine".

    A rather moot question, almost as relevant as asking who is the best pitcher on Rockies. They ain't gonna win, so what difference does it make.

    I haven't seen any polls lately, but Chris Christie's name just popped into my head.

    I like Christie, I don't like Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, or Scott Walker.

    Well I'd like to hear others opinions, But Sen. Rand Paul has certainly got my attention with his spot-on comments.
    He is right.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    Nevertheless, if he doesn't just go full-retard I might still vote for him. If not, I'll vote libertarian again and be sadly disappointed once more.
    I don't want to pull the "HAHA you make up 1% of America" card but if you want more parties than 2 then you need to have the adequate support.

    Christie isn't bad, from what I've seen and heard he's supposed to be one of the more moderate of the republicans, unlike moron palin or Bachmann.

    If I had to get a republican president I think Christie would be the one.

    As previously predicted, Jeb Bush will be the next President of the United States, provided he decides to put his name forward.
