Mike Huckabee For sure I like where he stands on 98% of the issues. And he speaks what he means, not what we want to hear.

Mitt Romney. Forget his religion, get over it, won't matter one bit in the White House. He's a successful manager and financially sound. Our economy needs a person who can provide that sort of leadership, through the next decade (it's going to be a rough ride when the baby boomers start retiring + the deficit + china). Mitt Romney has true American values.

Besides, he's a communicator and has all the right minerals a President should have (dare I say I'm reminded of Reagan).

Just wanted to point out, that out of the front runners, Mitt Romney is the only one with ONE wife. The other front runners are on their second and third marriages.

Default None of the above.

George W. Bush is responsible for turning me into a Democrat. I never, ever, thought I would say that, but there it is. The man is not fit to call himself by the same party name as the Gipper, Ronald Wilson Reagan, God rest his sweet soul.

Ron Paul isnt on the list. That's my vote easily. Email him your questions and look on his website. He's spot on so far.

Nice thought. But, about the only thing that the Libertarians have in common with Ralph Nader is that they tend to tilt the election in the direction of the person they would absolutely least like to see win.

I would them like to choose the most conservative candidate then the moderate voters will likely swing towards the democrats.

Guilliani and McCain are moderates so they will get alot of moderate voters and have a good chance at winning the white house in my opinion if one of those two get past the primaries.

Another thing is about Chuck Hagel alot of Nebraskans have very strong opinions against him because they feel he is a liberal even though he is very much a solid conservative.

Nebraskans in general dont take well to people who question people higher in a chain of command and thats what they percieve Hagel as doing and many of them dont like that.

McCain and Guiliani are the only two that'd get my vote.

McCain has done over hell of a good job in Arizona as our Senator and I would gladly support him if he chose to run. Even my most liberal friends think McCain would be a great canidate.

Guiliani did a great job at cleaning up NYC and that's what our country needs in this day and age. Our country needs to be cleaned up and I firmly believe Guiliani would be the best man for the job.
