    Re: Republican candidates for 2012

    Other has almost as many votes as the rest of the list combined, and there's no one candidate eating up those numbers. This at least has the potential to be quite a fractured field. We'll see what happens.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Re: Republican candidates for 2012

    I don't usually vote Republican, but if I did I would vote for Gary Johnson or Mitt Romney. Romney could be a winning ticket for Republicans but don't be surprised if they throw him away for a comedian like Sarah Palin.
    Vote John Schnatter (Papa John) 2012!

    Normally, if I don't like the GOP pick, I just don't vote for either. But if Palin runs, I WILL vote for Obama...

    I'd like to see Joe Biden run.

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.
    Actually, I supported McCain in '00 and '04. It was only after he moved further to the right and chose Palin as his VP pick that I stopped supporting him.

    The problem with McCain's campaign, if you ask me, was that he had his own way of doing things, which would have worked, but kept getting advise from the GOP machine, which pulled him further Right. I think if McCain campaigned like he did in '00 and '04, but kept with it after he got the GOP nomination, he would have done a lot better.

    I had a lot of respect for McCain before '08 because of his stances where he disagreed with the formal Republican Party, but now he seems to have just become more and more of a conservative schill. Which is really a damn shame.

    Being close to Trenton, I would say Christie could run and win. If there is one thing that Christie does that none of on these list do is that he backs up with what he says with similar action. Even Newt, who I think is one of the more intelligent Republicans, is just a mouth now.

    He's another one along with Jindal, who says he's not running.

    I gotta say, Christie has my respect when it comes to putting his money where his mouth is. Even so, I don't think he's ready for the Presidency yet.

    Personally, I'd really prefer it if presidential candidates had some form of federal experience before attaining office. While a governorship is great for executive experience, it is rather limited because governors look out for only a state, and they have the benefit of line-item vetos.

    Presidents, however, have to try to balance interests nationwide and really has to ride herd on Congress because of lack of the line-item veto power.

    So maybe if Christie was appointed to some sort of federal executive position, although not a Cabinet position.
