I like Hunter best, but Thompson is OK and may have a better shot to win.

In fairness, McCain and Huckabee belong on the list. Both imperfect, but unquestionably pro-life.

I vote WILLARD!

Thompson is electable, Hunter is not....a wasted vote in the Primary to place an un-electable candidate on the ballot only leads to a Hildabeast win.

They were.

They didn’t make the cut:

This is a runoff on the top three of the last poll.

Before we get the Fred followers saying that Duncan isn’t electable and is not gaining traction, here’s the latest evidence.

Here’s a recent poll showing Hunter at 4%.

http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/view/28889/republicans_2008_giuliani_28_thompson_19

Here’s an intrade link to the forum site discussing how Hunter might be gaining traction.
http://bb.intrade.com/intradeForum/posts/list/1797.page

Here’s one showing Fred at 6%, and discussing why.

Fred has lost ~30 points at Intrade over the last few weeks, looks like it’s stabilizing at ~6%.

I’m punching the button for Fred at this point, but if his campaign doesn’t get traction, I’d settle for Mitt. Let’s face it. As I’ve said for 6 months, Hunter’s campaign is going nowhere.

Mitt Romney.

Here’s my reasoning:

I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to have Duncan Hunter as President of the United States, but I realistically don’t believe that he will get the Republican Nomination.

Fred Thompson would be great, but I think he entered the race too late and does not have the ability to overtake Rudy as the Republican frontrunner.

In order to prevent liberal Rudy from getting the Nomination, which would be a disaster to the Republican Party (even if he wins the Presidency), I would rally behind Mitt Romney. Mitt is conservative enough (barely), is best positioned in terms of funding, and will probably win in most states that have early Primaries, thus giving him the momentum to overtake Rudy for the Nomination

In short, it is my humble opinion that supporting Mitt Romney is the best chance of avoiding the disaster that would be a Rudy vs. Hillary General Election.

If Romney's nominated Jim, are you going to vote for him? The man is just as pro-abortion as Rudy is only that he changed in the nick of time to run for President.

You criticize Paul yet you allow the Romneybots to post their drivel here back and forth. And Romney's not so sure on the war either, this comes from a guy who'll consult the lawyers before doing anything. What a pathetic joke.

Would Mitt Romney really govern as a "pro-abortionist"?

It is my belief that Mitt Romney's conversion to the pro-Life movement is sincere.

I don’t trust Romney , as he seems all too willing to say anything to get elected. That’s scary .

To Rudy’s credit he is in our face about his Liberalism , so we know what we are getting with him .

Who knows what he'll do? Even he's not so sure what he's going to do after consulting his advisors and sticking the finger in the air.

Yeah, and Clinton believed that abortions should be safe, legal, and rare too. We all know how that turned out.

Probably not. But I’ll be thankful that Giuliani got knocked out just the same.

Praying for a conservative.

Love this one from the Duncan Hunter Intrade forum: “It must be because I’m a liberal and am used to being surrounded by rational behavior. “

All the inmates in the (liberal) asylum obviously think that the insane is the norm.

I like Hunter but don’t think he has a shot of winning.

I have to vote Fred Thompson.

Romney is too NE liberal for my tastes and anti gun.

romney at least is saying the right things and perhaps deserves the benefit of the doubt. Can anyone really trust him? I don’t know but at least his wife does so he has something there. I think a lot of people feel that if he has a strong family that means that he should be a reliable as a social conservative vs someone who was divorced and then married someone much younger.

Rudy couldn’t care less about the right things and doesn’t even try.

Speaking of drivel. Romney said he would consult lawyers before making a pre-emptive strike on another country. He had better consult his lawyers, his congress, and his allies for that one.

I’ll take any of the three, Thompson, Romney or Hunter, but I would go mainly for the one most likely to win. At this point, that is probably Thompson.

I’m from NY so the possibility that anyone besides Rudy winning here is pretty far fetched. Therefore I’ll vote for hunter because there is still the possibility he could be VP or in the cabinet and he needs all the support he can get. I don’t want Huckabee to be VP

I just quoted a national poll, and put up the link to how Intrade has credibility.

Of course, so many of the Fred followers were quick to praise Intrade when it had him as the leader, and now it has no credibility. Interesting.

Nothing wrong with that list, although I would, believe it or not, consider putting Paul in as a treasury secretary. He is a pretty staunch fiscal conservative.

And if we really want to ruffle some feathers, how about Janice Rogers Brown for Attorney General?

Duncan Hunter all the way. I am astounded that anyone wouldn’t, given a choice of these three. Why nominate anyone but the best? Why even expect less the best we can do? Seems to me that;s how we got into this mess in the first place. We should expect more of elected officials!

Well, my thought is that in the primaries, you vote for whom you would like to see as President.

In the general election you vote against Hilary, regardless.

I’m voting for Hunter in the primaries.
