    Katich is a good choice. It's going to be tough to beat Bush's money though and he's got a serious head start.

    LOL......seriously? Other than driving HP into the ground and being fired for her incompetence....how is Fiorina even close to being "Uniquely qualified"? Even Sarah Palin was more qualified than her.

    Re: The Candidate for the Republicans

    The ones I'm most interested in at this point are Walker, Rubio and Fiorina, but it's way to early to jump one way or the other right now. I think there may be a couple more to choose from in the near future.

    Way to early for me, but I have no interest in any of the 4 you posted.

    Mornin Pol!
    I think Kasich is a fine man but I don't see it feasible that he will rise up to be a serious contender. Walker polls well in Florida and Ohio. Rubio is giving Bush a run for his money in Florida. Some are saying Walker/Rubio would be the dream ticket.

    Fiorino lost a proxy fight but the choices she made for HP made the company stronger, doubling it's size. She wasn't fired for incompetence, she laid of workers and executives and made enemies in the board room. Her record with the company however increased innovation and sales. I think you need to do a little reading outside media matters and moveon.org.

    Way too early, some have not even announced yet.

    Re: The Candidate for the Republicans

    I really don't want to see another Bush run for president. "Read my lips" and the continuing GW fatigue is tiresome imo and just doesn't bode well for the hopes of a fresh new Jeb Bush candidacy.

    I like Walker so far because of the fortitude he's shown as governor. Some have brought up Snyder from Michigan, but I don't think he's ready yet. Our roads are horrible as a result of the global warming induced historically low temps the past two winters and how he handles this issue may determine whether or not he'll be a good candidate in 2020.

    Unlike most on this board I actually get to cast one vote for someone in the entire field. Probably 1/3 will be gone after NH.

    As of this moment in time I like Pataki best of those who have actually declared. I don't think he has a chance and not sure he can beat Hillary. Of the undeclared I like Walker. A lot.

    Speaking of debates, I wasn't thrilled with Mitt before his debates but liked him much more after. I know a gal in her 90's who worked for American Motors (who Mitt's dad ran) and knew Mitt as a young boy running around at Christmas parties, and she said they were just the nicest, kindest people and he was such a good boy! It's hard to know exactly who someone is while running for president because I think they feel so compelled to create an image that everyone will embrace instead of being themselves. I think the debates can help bring out who they really are.
