    Both are too right wing for the independents. That's all that counts. Michelle Bat****insane and Pastor Perry simply won't appeal to the people who matter during an election period. However I hope the Conservative purists prevail in putting them on a ticket. It'll be a landslide.

    Perry stands the best shot out of the two.

    My thoughts exactly. Ron Paul can appeal to Independents while extreme right-wingers cannot ... and I am OK with that! So ... No they can't

    So, how about Paul's domestic policy stance? How does that square with your Independents versus "extreme right-wingers" (I'm guessing social conservatism is "extreme right-wing")?

    No, neither of the two can beat Obama, they are both wacky in their own ways.

    This. I don't think Perry would be real likely to win, but with well over a year to election, who can say for sure.

    Bachmann certainly can't beat Obama. I don't care how bad the economy is or how low Obama's approval rating goes...the American people have no appetite for political extremists and never have. She will lose big.

    Rick Perry is a much stronger candidate. I am worried about his candidacy. He seems to have all the ingredients necessary for a successful campaign. Obama is in for a very tough campaign if Rick Perry is the nominee...especially if the economy is as bad next year as it is now.

    Fair enough. Ron Paul could gather more Independents than Perry or Bachmann easily.

    Sure, anything can happen. Look who's sitting in the White House right now. There's your proof of concept.

    All Obama needs to do is something as crazy as his order to have NASA changes its mission to making sure that Muslim nations feel good about themselves. If he can come up with something as cockamamie as that in the days before an election, he's sure to be booted out.

    Elections are always a referendum on the incumbent, not the challengers.
