    There is no question the GOP has some good candidates capable of taking down "The wicked witch of the west."

    The GOP needs to be sensitive to the electoral college.

    The best they can hope for is a close race a la 2000 Bush v. Gore.

    In that year, Florida was the major swing-state.

    The Red-Blue state map in 2016 could likely look the same way:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...d-GoreBlue.png

    But, the GOP will need someone to grab Florida for sure, and maybe, just maybe, grab Pennsylvania too.

    So, who on the poll list of this thread can do that?

    No TPer can take Florida.

    No lightweight could beat Monica Lewinsky's impeached ex-boyfriend's wife .. or even that other woman.

    The GOP will need a heavyweight that can win the electoral college race.

    Who is that?

    Who on the list is that person?

    Jeb Bush is really the only one, with the right VP running mate.

    The problem with Bush is his "voiced" amnesty position on illegal aliens -- he's definitely a CGE (Corporate Global Expansionist) and so he favors amnesty and legalization to keep business costs down, even if wage scales plummet and American workers take it hard on the chin.

    One can only hope he'd come to his senses once elected.

    But, unless anyone can put together a complete analysis of who can win the electoral college against any of the liberal Democrat novelty candidates, picking a candidate by ideological appeal is futile, and will likely just result in a repeat of 2008.

    In a televised debate between these two, it would not matter which pundits thought who won.

    What would matter is who comes off looking the most Presidentially smart to the viewing voting audience.

    That would, obviously, be Clinton.

    Nobody wants a dumb-bunny in the White House .. well, if they can help it .. and her ignorant behavior in 2008 and thereafter simply did her in.

    Besides, Sarah Palin looks too much like Tina Fey so people would already be expecting to laugh at her from the get-go.

    She's toast and she knows it.

    Alright. That's up to you.

    But for the rest of us, I feel it's important to discuss this now, to find the best candidates who we agree with and who are the most experienced and best qualified to run for President.

    I personally believe Webb knows when to play hardball and when to cooperate and compromise.
    I don't know much about Webb in his policies as a Senator (he was a Senator until 2013, when Senator-elect Tim Kaine was sworn in), but it was cool that he was Navy Secretary under Reagan.

    I think it's cool he served in the Marines too. No U.S. President was ever in the Marines. I don't think any Vice President was, neither.

    I REFUSE to believe, especially after 2014 midterms, that this is turning into a liberal America that will just destroy itself with these failed policies. And that was just have to sit quietly and accept that?! NO!

    Jeb Bush is a moderate and he won't inspire conservatives to get out and vote. There's really not much of a difference between the Bushes or Clintons. All that was different were the times.

    I really think any of the GOP candidates can beat Hillary. The media might be nice to her now but they DO that, they BUILD UP potential candidates, then once they announce, they take them down. People are bored of Hillary, they are frustrated with Obama, they need Ted Cruz - he has all the right ideas for America and America needs to see that.

    As for Tea Party not winning Florida? They won the Governor and Senate races in 2010. They won Governor race in 2014. I don't know if the GOP Senate candidate was a moderate or not that year.

    The Tea Party has all the right ideas for America. NOT Liberals. NO, NOT EVEN the Moderates/Centrists.

    Re: 2016 Republican Presidential Primary (2nd Poll, this time multiple choice)

    The Republicans will be hard-pressed to win the White House in 2016.

    Most states are a forgone conclusion.

    Colorado is now too socially liberal to go Republican anymore.

    So in addition to their traditional red states, the Republicans will have to get the recent swing states of Indiana, Ohio, Virgina, North Carolina, and, of course, Florida.

    But, with Colorado now going Democrat .. even that's not enough to win the Presidency.

    The Republicans will also need one of the only long-shot likely states of either Pennsylvania or Michigan.

    Again, who can they field who will win this many states?

    Pennsylvania still remembers the Civil War, and a southern candidate simply won't carry PA in the current environment.

    The Republicans better think really hard about who they can run against either novelty candidate (Clinton or Warren), as either woman will likely take Michigan .. unless they think Detroit-Lansing won't tolerate a woman in the White House, which might be a critical mistake, unless Obmanesty alienates them sufficiently.

    But, can either she take PA? Normally, the answer is yes .. so the Republicans will really have to battle hard in PA.

    And, don't forget Florida -- without Florida, the other battleground states are meaningless.

    So who do the Republicans have who can take Florida and Pennsylvania?

    Who?

    It really looks like the Republicans are toast already in 2016.
