I absolutely can not stand Lou Dobbs.

I always quickly turn off the television or turn the station whenever he's on. I honestly would much rather listen to Hannity or Bill O'Reilley over Lou.

You'll never see a pro-choice candidate come out of the GOP primaries.

And by never I mean not in the next election cycle. My crystal ball only goes so far.

After 4 great years of Obama, it is going to take someone far greater than any of these people you have listed here to oppose him. We could be looking at the end of the Republican party with the departure of that pathetic Bush.

I agree.

I love Mitt Romney. Hope he runs in 2012.

I voted Condi but a Newt/Condi ticket would seal the deal for me.

Huckabee. Now there's a name that will ensure the GOP never gets near the White House for at least 16 years.

As a Democrat, I selected Palin again because she is so cute while also being unelectable. A perfect combination.

Huckabee is just as unqualified and unelectable as Palin. He has spent most of his adult life as a Southern Baptist minister, a job for which the qualifications for entry are quite low.

Condi Rice is basically destined to be a perpetual bureaucrat. She was educated to be an anti-Soviet cold warrior. Events in the world have passed her training by.

The rest of the persons on that list are unelectable.

You are so right.....socialism is the direction of this country, and people will love paying higher taxes because it will make them feel "more patriotic."

Will people feel he is such a great president before or after the Depression as a result of business leaving this country from being taxed to death? Will people feel he is a great president after an imminent terrorist attack under a weak Liberal President?

I am not seeing where people will view him as a "good president." Did I miss something?
