With him out, and if I had to pick one of the 4, I would choose Pawlenty. But, again, I don't have to pick only from what has been presented, so I will once again put in yet another shameless promotion for Ron Paul.
    I don't see how it would hurt Newt. The election would be about policy discussion, not his marriages. Obama wouldn't stand a chance in that intellectual fencing match.

    None of them. I want someone new that's never been on the official scene before.

    I don't really care about the marriage thing. I mean, Robert Byrd used to be in the KKK...

    And I don't see any Democrats calling for his resignation, but if the ethics charges are true then I would defintely say that's bad and worthy of criticism.

    I would only support Newt because he's pretty fiscally conservative and not Barack Obama...the latter aspect being his most important quality.

    Sorry but I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. No matter which one you pick you're still going to get screwed. It's sad that that mentality has become so prominant that it has become the only choice. IE No choice at all.

    He seemed like the most moderate Republican running in 2008.
    My biggest issue with him is that he believes the constitution should be rewritten to meet "God's standards". I hesitate backing any politician that believes the document our country is founded on should be rewritten to reflect something as ambiguous as "God's standards".

    I personally like Romney. I think he's a smart politician. I would have had to think about my vote if he beat out McCain.

    Normally I would agree with you, but if Obama gets four more years he might permanently "change" things for the worse...

    Make sure y'all head over to Mitt Romney Central and cast your vote here.
    The poll wouldn't work for me there.

    Yes over fifty years ago and many apologies ago, but he'd still never be able to run for President because of it.

    Well, if there's a moral "statute of limitations" on being in the KKK then surely there's one for adultery.

    I'd say six years is sufficient.
