    Unfortunately, American politics is less and less about reaching towards the middle and more and more about rooting for individual sides, so I really doubt that Romney would win the GOP nomination.
    He is a bit out of touch with common folk, but I could vote for him. Depending on who the VP is....hopefully he would choose a VP that has a substantial military background.

    Please provide me with a quote where he said it was a "bad idea." I'll be waiting.

    How about Stanley A. McChrystal? Wouldn't that be an interesting pair?

    If he keeps going the way he is now, that's a distinct possibility.

    wouldn't it be more appropriate for you to post a link proving he said Texas should secede?

    Nevermind....

    Perry has expressed bewilderment that his statements drew so much attention. And he did not, as some national media reports said, advocate secession. He did, however, assert Texas' right to leave the U.S., and he expressed sympathy for those so frustrated with the federal government's taxes, spending and mandates that they feel secession is an option.
    "Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that"
    He was stating a fact... not advocating it. Huge difference.

    I did still vote for Perry, but this freaked me out a few a years ago. Not something a real conservative would do.

    How so?
    He did business school and law school at the same time, he has a first class brain. But, as I said, he is a bit out of touch with the common folk. The GOP kicked him in the teeth by promoting McCain, a man who is much more out of touch with common folk, not to mention reality. McCain was a few numbers short of graduating at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy, not for lack of brains as much as lack of effort. Last thing we need in the WH is a slacker.

    And he certainly would be a role model in the fight against obesity.

    Seriously though, between the oil spill and Bobby J's handling of LA. economy, he's the best counter to a President that prolonged the recession and botched the oil spill with red tape. Bobby J will have plenty of real life examples to contrast his philosophy to Obama's. If he picked NJ's Gov as a running mate, it would be a land slide...mostly because everyone would be scared to vote against him. Can you imagine Christie in a debate against Biden?
    "Jindal, considered to be a rising star within the GOP despite some high profile setbacks, issued an emphatic Shermanesque statement Monday in an interview with the Associated Press when asked about his 2012 White House plans.

    "I'm not being coy at all. I'm not running for president in 2012. Period. No ifs, ands or buts, no caveats," said Jindal. "We have made great progress in Louisiana, but we've got a lot more work to do.""

    I would have put Jindal on the list, but he is NOT running in 2012. Look for him in 2016 maybe.
