    I don't think America is nearly ready to put another Texan in the White House yet. That being said, Perry adds a great deal of balance to the GOP ticket as Veep. Romney/Perry is a much stronger ticket than Perry/Romney.

    Romney and Huntsman are PRESENTED as essentially the same candidate and have much of the same benefits and negatives. Huntsman attracts few new people to the ticket that Romney doesn't already attract. Huntsman detracts in a similar fashion to Romney. Huntsman brings little to a Romney Presidency from a political science stand point.

    Its not rational nor logical at all but would instead go against rationality in regards to the VP choices of most of the recent elections.

    Obama's VP = White Old guy who was supposedly "stronger" on Foriegn Policy and lots of experience
    McCain = Young Woman who was solidly conservative
    Kerry = Young charismatic southerner
    Bush = Old respected thinker with "gravitas"
    Dole = Progressive, more "moderate" republican
    H.W. Bush = Young guy to counter the career politician
    Dukakis = Southerner, Texan, who was an "elder statesmen" and experienced
    Mondale = Female with a lot of fervor behind her hoping to spark emotion

    The three in recent times that don't really fit it? H.W. Bush and Lieberman, both picked primarily due to their success in the primary and party urging (Doesn't fit Huntsman). And then Gore, who was extremely abnormal due to the similarities between him and Bill Clinton in terms of political reach.

    Huntsman as a pick for Romney would be an illogical, trend bucking, politically stupid choice. And this is from arguably one of the forums biggest Huntsman fans.
    that analysis certainly seems to feed the "Romney-Rubio" speculation; I'm not sure Cain occupies a space enough on the other end of the see-saw to balance Romney, though.

    Best ticket also implies who you trust as VP. Furthermore, Romney doesn't have to buy his farm for the VP to matter. Would you trust Bachmann at the helm for a week over any of the others? Gah!

    The reality is the likilihood of the VP having to take over for the President is a significantly small one.
    Depends how you define small. I figure at least part of the vote against McCain was the chance he'd have to give up power for a significant period of time due to his health and Palin would be granted the proverbial keys. That was a pretty frightening scenario. Furthermore, in the past half dozen presidencies, the VP has taken over. Granted, I don't see Romney with the kind of health issues McCain had, but it's still a concern.

    A situaiton that has happened relatively rarely in our countries history. While I want a VP that I think could be decent at it, its not nearly as big of an issue for me as it is with the President. Especially since unlike the President the VP would theoritically, baring an assasination of inauguation day, have a fair bit of time getting first hand, direct experience on how to do the job.
    Be that as it may, be wouldn't it be better to pick those who are already better at it?

    If it was simply who I thought would make an okay President or be able to do the job, it'd be Huntsman, Newt, and Perry with Cain coming in 4th. However, I think in the last 3 election cycles people were brought on the ballet more for political reasons rather than a belief they'd make the best President.
    Absolutely. Gore was picked for his southern voting draw. Palin, for all kinds of reasons. I'm not quite sure about Quayle though.

    Was Ron Paul left off of this list deliberately? I'm confused.

    I believe that Romney has the best chance of winning, but I was disappointed by a lack of other options (including options without Romney), also.

    Romney-Bachmann
    Romney-Gringrich
    What a no-brainer poll! WHY is Romney, the LEAST qualified Republican candidate, in all of the choices. Why is Ron Paul left completely out?

    Here is my choice: PAUL-CAIN

    I also like Cain-Paul.

    No Romney--ever. No Romneycare. No Obamacare. Neither of these peas in my pod.

    Why the confusion? Of COURSE he was left off deliberately.
