    Good question. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, there were some who were in the "Other" category. I picked who I guessed were the 9 most likely to run and added the "Other" option. I wish there was an unlimited or at least longer options. People like her (Sarah Palin), Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, Ted Nugent, Donald Trump, John Bolton, Newt Gingrich, Mary Fallin.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Huntsman would be my top choice. However his ineffective 2012 campaign, and the fact that Democrats and independents actually seem to like him, or at least know that appearing to like him will make sure he never gets the nomination, I don't see him likely.

    My next choice would be Rob Portman from Ohio. I would also love to see Brian Sandoval run because I've recently become a pretty big fan of his, but I doubt he would.

    Susana Martinez, Bob Corker, Mitch Daniels, Paul Ryan, and John Thune would all be pretty good for me.

    Mike Huckabee has always appealed to me as a person. He's seemed much more likeable and honest than the average politician, but I'm not sure I could get past some of his social policies and the fact that he would probably make them center points of his campaign.

    I still haven't decided completely how I feel about Rubio and Paul.

    I wouldn't vote for Santorum or Perry, although I doubt I'd have to worry about either one.

    For several reasons I'm vehemently opposed to Ted Cruz in 2016.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    I don't know much about Haley, I'll have to look into her. Although I know she might have a difficult time against Sheheen next year after he came so close to beating her in 2010.

    When will Republicans learn, that nominating a moderate just because they're viewed as "more likely to win" - not only is wrong because it has to "settle" for "MUCH less than best"
    BUT ALSO, it didn't work in 2008 with McCain, and it didn't work in 2012 with Romney. It wouldn't work with Christie in 2016. Please don't make that mistake again.



    If the GOP lets the perfect be the enemy of the good in 2016 another Democrat will move into the White House in 2017.

    Huntsman left the Governor's office the first year into his 2nd term, to be an Ambassador to China under Obama for like about 2 years when he still had 3 and a half years left as Governor.

    Brian Sandoval gave in and decided to support Obamacare (AKA Obamadontcare)

    Susana Martinez won't leave the state for national office because she prefers to stay close to home since she has a disabled sister to take care of.

    Mike Huckabee is a likeable, honest politician. I like the fact that he's a conservative.

    There is absolutely no reason why anyone should dislike Ted Cruz. He is actually THE best candidate for President amongst all of them. It shows how deceived America is that they want bad politicians like liberals running this country. It's wrong.

    She wouldn't be a bad choice neither. If she wins re-election in 2014 and I hope she does. She'll have been a 6 year Governor, and a tea party supporter.

Our politicians are letting us down, and worse of all, they don't care. Party truly has become more important than what is good for the people of this country.

    One hopeful thing I saw this morning---my innocent little Christmas cactus, which sits on a stand by the window, has burst into full bloom, right on Nature's timetable. This humbled me and gave me a little reminder that that there are greater truths in the universe than we can imagine, and that our petty squabbles over things might keep us at odds with each other, but in the end, it doesn't matter. Time will go on, whether we are here or not. :

    Good morning, Pero.
    It is now afternoon, so Afternoon Pol. I agree. The Universe will go on and one with or without us. They say time and space is infinite. Perhaps by our standards. But who know what really lies out there and if we were there if we would or could understand it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
