The two leaders, BY FAR, are Palin and Pence...

Sounds like a hell of a ticket, to me.

Yup. See my tagline. I think Pence is going to come out if nowhere and really impress.

Thune, Romney, Bush, and Huckabee can be fundraisers..They aren’t good for anything higher than that. Pawlenty is a question mark to me.

Of the other eight - three look like they belong on the short list for Pres/VP (Palin, Pence, and Daniels - in that order), and those who don’t make the cut would make first rate cabinet secretaries.

Petraeus for SecDef, Bolton for SecState, Perry for SecTrans., Cain or Barbour for Commerce (pick one - the other goes for SecAgr.)

I know it would leave a few of the posts unfilled - that’s okay -put DeMint and Coburn somewhere, and just abolish the remainder of the departments (like education, labor, interior...) by defunding or not filling those slots

Just my scattered thoughts...

I am not scolding you or taking issue with your posting.

I am merely stating my opinion and I think it’s a shame that RedState regular readers can’t just conduct their own poll, but such is the way of the Internet.

In a recent poll, Hermain Cain, in the MO of Ron Paul, had all of his FaceBook friends *pump* his numbers.

I understand your concern.

But that the previous poll (the one that Herman Cain "FReeped" from his facebook page) -- was on THIS VERY SAME WEBSITE (RedState.com) -- which is one of the main reasons that they are running it again now. :o)

Since FR took down the "thread view" counter, we can no longer know for certain how many FReepers viewed this thread -- but in the old days, when we could, a very popular thread like Ann Coulter's weekly column would regularly get around 1,500 "thread views."

Sometimes as much as 2,000. But that's for Ann's regular weekly column. THIS thread (posted on a weekend night) probably only got a few hundred "thread views."

And, based on my previous experience with "FReeping" polls, we wouild be lucky to get TEN PERCENT of those who "viewed" this thread to actually VOTE.

Plus, Governor Palin may not have even been the only person that FReepers from this thread voted for.
So we might expect that AT MOST, FReepers from this thread added a few hundred votes to that poll. Probably more like a few dozen.

And, you cannot easily "vote like a Democrat" on these RedState polls. I know; I tried. ;)

Here are the CURRENT results, post "FReeping."
Who is your initial preferred pick for the GOP President Candidate
Selection  
Votes
Haley Barbour  4% 360
John Bolton  4% 335
Jeb Bush  3% 246
Herman Cain  8% 680
Mitch Daniels  8% 649
Mike Huckabee  5% 396
Sarah Palin  33% 2,716
Tim Pawlenty  5% 388
Mike Pence  14% 1,133
Rick Perry  3% 275
David Petraeus  3% 216
Mitt Romney  8% 686
John Thune  2% 185
8,265 votes total
Not much change Governor Palin's position.

Bottom line: Internet polls are generally worthless, and Presidential polls this far out are almost meaningless...

...but the results of this current poll show that Sarah is still "ineluctable," in MY opinion. :o)

I’m not surprised by Palin; a little surprised by Pence; and quite surprised that people-—even though they don’t really know his politics-—haven’t hamed Petraeus more. It’s an American tradition to gravitate toward successful conservative generals: Washington, Jackson, Harrison, Grant, Ike.

That should be a signal to the GOP.

Any person without at minimum of a double-digit percentage will lose the General Election.

They didn’t pay attention to that in 2008 when they selected McCain, and he lost by 2-to-1 Electoral votes.

Aside from Palin, that is the weakest field of Presidential candidates in my memory. (Erickson didn’t even add Demint!)

Of course, if you add Palin to this list, her presence so raises the average as to make it among the strongest fields.

Without Palin, however, this GOP field is....well...what Obama hopes to find under his tree:

Regional candidates, first time candidates, boring candidates, moderate GOP Establishment squishes who will depress turnout and a Bush thrown in for good measure.

LOL. Yes. I know that DeMint is not listed! Erickson is taking him at his word, that he is not running and not interested in running. Aside from Sarah Palin, the Grand Old Party currently lacks star power when it comes to presidential politics. I think we might have some stars in the bull pen for later years.

Indeed. I don't think Bolton could make it thur the GOP primary as a first time candidate, but he'd probably raise his profile by entering the race and be in a good position to get a cabinet post in a GOP adminstration. Bolton would be ideal as SOS. We'd have a pitbull taking on our enemies, compared to the lack couple of hacks who got the job because the mainstream media demanded it.

And if Bolton derails Thune's chances, it would be the finest example of political karma.

yeah - agreed

I was first in on this thread with that notion (Post # 14)...plus as a bonus, I gave a nod to Petraeus for SecDef and filled a few other key slots...

Palin and Pence...yeah - that would be good!

In dreamland, after seating such a cabinet, President Palin would, in her first month in office, withdraw the US from the UN, cancel the UN’s lease on their NYC digs, fire all American UN employees, revoke the diplomatic credentials of all foreign UN reps, cancel all UN-designated US taxpayer funds and terminate all UN programs operating in the USA.

The next day, she would suspend the operations and order an audit of, the Federal Reserve, meanwhile placing the US imnmediately on the silver standard as an interim step to restoration of the gold standard...followed by simultaneous audits of Fannie and Freddie...
