    I would vote Gingrich, hands down.

    Re: 2012 Poll for those who do not want to vote for Obama [again]....

    Out of that list I'd probably have an easy choice unless it was Palin, who I have issues with, or Johnson and Jeb, as I know little about either atm.

    Don't know if I could pick a favorite. I like a lot of Ron Paul's views and voted for him in the primary, but don't think he'd have a legitimate shot at all of winning. I like Huckabee a lot but he's just a bit too crazy fundy for me at times. Ryan seems like a very interesting sleeper candidate. Jindal I was down on from his Republican response but heard him a few times talking about the oil spill and really liked him. Gingrich and Romney I think are both sound and could give Obama a good fight.

    My vote will not count anyway, so I'll just vote for whatever third party candidate is on the ticket.

    Ok, the [Again] tag in the title made me think it was geared to people who had voted for Obama. As for me, I chose Gingrich. I think he's very intelligent, articulate, and could have a shot at beating Obama.

    Who would you support in 2012?
    I picked other conservative or libertarian. Tom Tancredo. Duncan Hunter and Sam Brownback would be my other choices.


    I found this old quiz, It might give people an idea who comes close to their views even though some of these guys may not be running in 2012.
    Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz 2008
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's a really big shame that Paul Ryan has said he will not run. Someone ought to beat him over the head until he changes his mind, because he would win the nomination in a heartbeat.

    Otherwise, of the choices up there, I'd probably go for Gingrich. There are some potentially good choices not listed there though, like Mitch Daniels and Tim Pawlenty. Don't know much about what I or anyone else will do now though; it's almost two whole years away, after all.

    In what sense does it not count? Do you mean 1. because of its insignificance, 2. because you live in Chicago, or 3. because Obama's homestate will go for Obama anyways? Or 4. other?

    He said he wouldn't run? Hm. His Facebook messages sound like a campaign already....

    Jeb Bush has also said no to 2012.

    Palin Favorite Paul Ryan Rules Out 2012 Run for President - The Note

    "I'll give you as Shermanesque a quote as I can," said Ryan. "I am not going to run for president. I'm just not going to do it. My head's not that big, and my kids are too small.”
    Unfortunately, he made it pretty clear and definitive. That's more than most politicians would do.

    Jeb Bush has also said no to 2012.
    Yeah, Jeb Bush is a big definite no thank you. Not because he'd be a bad president, but there is no way we are going to elect a third Bush, especially after what happened to the first two. It won't and frankly shouldn't happen.

    All of the above.

    The "other" portion is because individual votes for Prez are worthless in every instance where the state is solidly in favor of one candidate.

    My vote would be just as worthless in Texas, which will definitely be "red" in 2012 as it will be in Illinois.

    In "purple" states, they become slightly less worthless, but they are still pretty much worthless. With the stranglehold of the two-party system, all votes are worthless in the long run.
