I hope not, because the alternatives are frightening.

The ultra right wing goons will say yes, the smart republicans and the rest of the people will say no.

No the dems aren't that stupid. I'd love it if Hillary Clinton would run but she wont.

No strong democratic candidate would run because they wouldn't want to appear divisive. Especially if they want to have a chance in 4 more years.

I'm not sure if the masses would vote a Republican into office because deep down they know that they don't want their social welfare programs cut.

It will take a moderate republican to beat Obama.

The current republican candidates are appealing to the tea party and birther crowds which are a smaller segment of voters overall.

The current state of the Republican Party can best described as "The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight".

It seems they are going out of their way to please their base.

The more they do that the more they alienate moderates who they really need to win elections.

Also the bids to take away collective bargaining in Wisconsin and Ohio are going to prove disasterous in the 2012 presidential election for the Republican Party. In order for the Republican Party to win the White House they NEED to win Midwestern swing states. All these states have long histories of strongly supporting UNIONS.
