Carson, Paul or Cruz would be most excellent choices for the Cons...
If Jeb Bush had balls and kept up positions like he initially started (centrist) then I could have supported him. Seems he will back off centrist positions that would gain him independent voters to secure the right wing base, and that won't work for me. I dislike most on the list. Folks mentioned Huntsman and Portman, but I agree the Huntsman campaign was like watching paint dry.

Rand Paul, definitely.
No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
as for the rest ,there are pros and cons to all of them but a big thing for 2016/voting will be social issues. Just the way it is unfortunately. Im not saying thats how it SHOULD be but its the way it will be.
So all of them would have to run thier campaign in other directions, if any of thier "platforms" have anti-abortion and anti-equal rights stuff in them its a sure lose, just how it is right now. If they run on promises to stop/ban abortions and deny gays equal rights the run themselves out of the race.
Should it be how ANY candidate is solely judged, no but if you highlight those issues they can make or break you and in this case they will break them.
It be awesome if our elections dealt with REAL politics.
Is this all anyone has on him? Why does it matter? Look at where he stands on the issues. And he is also a damn fine doctor from what i read.
