The bloggers voted on three different groups of candidates. The first grouping included the big name candidates that were likely to run, the second asked which of those candidates the bloggers would be LEAST LIKELY to support, and the last list was expanded out to cover 20 candidates, including some that are currently considered unlikely to run. Now, here are the results,

Christie has to get better on the Second, stronger on the border and I think he is pro choice too. Also he is too big of a Springseteen fan.
If he gets a bit more conservative I could be there.
I wish Ken Cuccineli in VA was already a governor because he is great. He would make a great POTUS.
i want christie as treasurer
Palin / Christie?
There’s a lot of electoral college votes in Jersey and it might win it for her.
None could debate and demolish the shallow Mao/Marxist views of Obama more readily than West. None could expose the arrogance of an empty suit with such ease as West.
Is this joke because Christie is not a right winger or a conservavtive?
Well, with names like Snark and Boobs, and Blonde Sagacity, how could you go wrong?
What do bloggers do when they run out of things to blog about?
Poll other bloggers, apparently.
Wouldn’t the Graham / Snowe ticket be historical because it would feature a woman and a gay man.
West needs to win against Klein first. I suggest everyone send him money ; )!
” Lindsay Graham/Olympia Snowe ticket.”
Bob Bennett and VP Susan Collins!
Now there’s a pair of hard charging moderates who could fire-up REAL American voters!
And Bob’s got some time on his hands...
Not sold yet, but want to hear more from Herman Cain.
Bloggers won’t annoint a leader, God will.
Sarah Palin will be our last, best hope.
Christie would also be good as Attorney General. But it would kind of a shame to take him away from New Jersey. There are decades of mess for him to clean up there.
Theres a lot of electoral college votes in Jersey and it might win it for her.
Then again, her having to explain his gun-grabbing and cap 'n tax views in TX would be a hoot. LOL.
Amen. For such a time as this...
What about Christie as Sec. of Labor? LOL!!!
Actually, that might be a great fix to the country’s union problems.
1 COR 1:26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards,  not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human being  might boast in the presence of God.
