    he wont "plan to run" until he believes he might have a chance to win. some more small victories like this over the next year or two and things could change.

    i think romney is still the front runner though.

    Am I alone in thinking that Romney is NOT the answer either? Just another guy that's gonna toe the party line imo.

    huckabe would be great---- if he wasn't such a religious nutbag. That fact alone ruined his chances IMO.

    Ron paul was 76 when he ran last time. That would make him 82-83 for 2012.... to 86-87 by the end of the first term.... while he seems to be in good health, he's simply too old to run again IMO.

    thats why he needs a stellar vp. the vp will be the deciding factor for those on teh fence thinking about voting for him.

    What has Biden done that's worthwhile? I can't remember ever hearing about him actually performing any valuable service whatsoever to the country. Maybe I just missed it, but he's never in the news, as far as I've seen.

    You can't get to reformed govt from clownshoes overnight. At this point any improvement is better than none.

    You can't just throw your hands up and say "fuck it" when everything doesn't change at once.

    I didn't realize Paul was that old. That's definitely gonna be an obstacle should he decide to run.

    B I agree with you on the religious nutjob aspect of Huckaby. That's my biggest issue with the GOP. They just can't seem to get away from that extreme conservative christian-ism, and that's a big problem for a lot of people.

    I also think the fact that Romney is a Mormon is going to be a real hurdle for him to clear in the South.
