    Lots of possibilities.

    Please nominate Jeb Bush so we can have a complete shut out.

    Since I'm not a Republican, I won't vote in the poll. But I would say I would vote for Christie over pretty much anyone, Democrat or Republican, in 2016. Others I would consider include Hillary and Jon Huntsman, should they choose to run.

    On a national level, the USA permanently went European today.

    That means an extreme economic gap and distinct classes of people.

    1.Under Obama, 1,100,000 Americans became millionaires. There will be class of the rich.
    2. The middle class - if inflation factors - saw a 20% drop in income. The gap between the rich and everyone else huge.
    3. Government became the reliable employment and very large percentage of population.
    4. A large lower/poor populous dependent upon government.

    What that all means is the Republican Party cannot win nationally anytime again in the foreseeable future.

    That model, ironically, works quite well for our household as we all living on government income from all different directions. However, I did not believe this is a good direction for most people.

    The fight between social conservatives and economic conservatives will cripple the Republican party in the primary, and regardless Republicans can no longer win, on Romney's 47% theory. A majority of the population now looks to the government for essentially everything - and that will only increase. The greater the gap on wealth, the more people would vote to the left.

    Our daughter in her first year of college, watching the election, slightly shifted her double majors to make it targeting government employment for that same reason. Government is about the only remaining reliable career employment.

    Politics will continue to be endless, pointless bickering over words all adding up to nothing as it has been for some time.

    All the mouthing about Republicans now rallying behind some young "conservative" (meaning social conservative) to victory will fail on the national level. The Democrats did not just win the presidency. They won the permanent transformation that was the goal.

    The loser? Central and South America. The USA's focus of alliance will continue to be the EU, with our economy in low dollar goods and trade with Asia.

    Of course. A Democrat prefers the least Republican. A funny message really.

    As a European, i voted "other" just so that I don't disrupt the poll but I would like to see Huntsman run in 2016 and also Rand Paul.

    Paul Ryan should not run as president for quite some time>>> I also don't think any of the candidates I mentioned should take him on as VP if they want to appeal to the independents.

    I'd prefer Jon Huntsman, although I doubt he would ever be able to get the nomination after he pretty much campaigned against his own party in the primaries. Now he's looked at as way to liberal to be the nominee, even though he really isn't. Failing that, I think Rob Portman, Chris Christie, and Marco Rubio are the best bets to win in 2016.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting
