    Thune all the way for me, he seems to have the most integrity out of the entire crowd and is fairly charismatic...however, i don't know if that's because he really DOES have integrity, or if it's just because he has been under the radar, so to speak.

    I'm not actually going to be backing a Republican Candidate - unless everyone else is a total wash. But for who I would consider to be a GOOD candidate on that end: Newt Gingrich.

    Me.

    I know next to nothing about governing anything, have no experiance in the field whatsoever, and no idea who I would choose as my running mate.

    Perhaps a hot female, who I could be accused of sleeping with, on the side (I wish).

    I would likely be instantly corrupted by DC, as I have no money to speak of (debts, actually).

    But, things would stay the same.

    I will be supporting Mitch Daniels during the Republican Primaries, should he choose to run. Although he is relatively unknown, I have a very good feeling about his chances.

    Tim Pawlenty 100%. I'd seriously vote for him over Obama, just to give him a chance at the job. He has a great record of success in Minn. and since he's a republican, he'd have more of a chance of getting things done than Obama because of the current political environment.

    I really wish Christie from NJ would run for president. Maybe in 2016.
