I haven't included Jeb Bush because he plans to retire in 2007, after leaving the Governor mansion.

What do you think?

I think it needs to be a Governor, Romney or Racicot?

Giuliani would be okay as a last-resort. He's pro-abortion, so hopefully we could find someone with a bit more common sense.

Why would Republicans run a bunch of Democrats?

I would have to hear more about these people's stance on issues before i would vote for them.
though if i had to vote right now I would go with Mitt just because i know the most about him and I already voted for him. Though I like the idea of Condi being in the race, but i would have to hear more from her before i decided

any chance of cloning barry goldwater??

Stike Hagel from that list! He id my senator and believe me there are alot of people angry with him for publicly critising the Pres...if he has a problem he should talk in private, not try to be a McCain redux.

I would prefer a new face that has a strong record as a governor. I don't think career Senators make good Presidential candidates.

Mitch Daniels? Assuming he wins in Indiana.

Rudy Giuliani - too liberal

Bill Frist - not tough enough

Condoleezza Rice - way too soon for her

Mitt Romney would have a big advantage in the New Hampshire primary, being the governor from a neighboring state, and what he did with the Olympics in 2002 was pretty remarkable.

Strike Hagel from that list!

Amen to that! Hagel said last week he might run for president, he might run for senate or he might retire. I suggest Hagel defect to the RAT party where his criticisms and flip-flop-flips are more readily accepted.

Dick Cheney has always said he doesn't interest the Presidency.

And how many other candidates can you name who denied that they were interested in being president right up to the day that they started running for president?

I would prefer a current Governer, such as Sanford (sounds like the most conservative)or Romney, with Rice as the V.P.

Truth be told, I would put Rice at the top of the ticket just to see her whip Hillary's candy ass in three debates. I would love to see the look on Hillary's and the MSM's faces when they quickly realize that Hillary is not the smartest woman on the planet.

Eliminate all of the following from your list:

1. U.S. Senators (Frist, Hagel, etc.)
2. Those who have never held elected office (Rice)
3. Liberal Democrats (Pataki, Giuliani)

That ought to narrow your list down quite a bit.

He won't get far, that's why I said to strike him from the list....no one outside of Nebraska knows him, and alot of us are upset with him. Although he CAN say that his Vetnam ribbons and metals ARE for real and that he bled alot along with his brother who was in his same unit..

I've been thinking the past few weeks that Fred Thompson would be an electable candidate if he could be dragged back into the fray. Wouldn't that frost algore - a real Tennessean and the man who held Al's old Senate seat as President while Gore takes another prozac/luvox cocktail and continues his meltdown.

What about George W? Since he was not legitimately elected in 2000, the next four years will be his first term, so he can run for a second in 2008.

Oh, I dunno. An Owens/Tancredo ticket could beat Her Heinous, IMHO.

We can't run a RINO like Rudy. He'd be good in a Cabinet position such as National Security Advisor, but not as President, IMHO.

We need another Reagan. Someone who has solid conservative credentials that can appeal to the masses the way The Gipper did.

I agree with you about Racicot but there's something fishy about him. I don't remember all of the points but as I recall he turned W down for a pretty big appointment after the 2000 democratic voter fraud issue in Florida. At that time he claimed he wanted to spend more time with his family. I don't know why he is reluctant but whenever the light shines on him he seems to back away.

We have to take every possible vote away from Hillary.
