I agree that Romney would be a great choice. Given his brilliance in economics we will definitely need him after these 4 years

Ron Paul is the only Republican I'd consider voting for.

Speaking as a Democrat, Huckabee always seemed like a really nice guy although I can't say I necessarily agree with most aspects of his platform. But I think if I ever did vote Republican, it would probably be for Ron Paul.

Every Republican I know DESPISES Huckabee. They referred to him as a RINO and questioned why he wasn't running as a Dem instead.

Ron Paul is a man of great integrity whose beliefs don't easily fit into any ideological box as he is an economic conservative and social moderate (the exact opposite of Huckabee) and I would easily vote for him, but won't he be too old to run in 2012?

You know when I started this thread I considered adding Ron Paul's name to the poll, but that question popped up in my mind, his age. He is 73 now, so in 2012 he'll be 77, so I didn't add him. The same goes for John McCain.

it depends on the hot issue at election time and who we think is best able to handle it. We sure missed the boat by not nominating Romney in '08.
