Personally I would like to see viable 3rd party candidate to try to end what is practically a two party monopoly.
    To get a viable third party candidate, you would need a third party that is inline with what a significant proportion of America believes in. Right now that is not the case.

    If Sarah Palin or a tea partier is nominated, yes
    If a moderate Republican is nominated, then he'll may or may not be beat, will be close

    Right now, I'd put it at a 65/35 chance with regards to reelected / not reelected.

    I think its substantially more likely that he wins, but I don't think its a forgone conclussion. I do think its a good bit to far out to make any kind of sizable claim though. A LOT can happen just between now and when the Republican candidate is announced, let alone before the Primaries for the Republicans even really get fully going.

    ... ah, yes, those tea party candidates sure made a difference in the Senate races of Nevada, Delaware and Colorado. Sorry, but I think the exact opposite is true. While this tea party nonsense seems to win the hearts of some conservatives, they are largely discounted as wack-a-doos by middle of the road voters. Winning the presidency is about two things: turning out your base (which the tea party candidate will do) and wooing the middle of the road voters (which the tea party will very much NOT do).

    Yes, he is very vulnerable.... but to date, the Republicans have no one that can win. The biggest problem with the Republicans is they have become very impractical ideologues (redundant as the definition of ideologue includes impractical). They will not nominate anyone that can actually win the national election.
