    I'm excited about Sarah Palin. She represents all the best values of the Republican Party

    I guess we're 2 years away. That's a long time off. I'm trying to remember if I knew much about Bill Clinton in 1990. I guess not. I'm fairly sure that amongst the field of Pawlenty, Palin, Romney, Gingrich, Thune, Barbour, Jindal, there are no great candidates in the group. Perhaps I'm wrong, or maybe there's some darkhorse that will come along that I don't know about. I guess that's why I asked the question. I'm impressed with Kasich, Christie, and Rubio, but they're all new to the scene or at least won't be running in 2012. Romney and Palin have obvious strengths, but big weaknesses too. The others, I just don't see being strong enough. Am I missing something?

    Republicans don't nominate darkhorses...it comes with being conservative

    Pawlenty, Palin, Romney, Gingrich, Thune, Barbour, Jindal is about all you got

    You will find your thread will die from this point on. Nobody from the right has anyone they will say they support. You will get "wait and see"....which means "We ain't got nobody"

    Reagan trailed Carter right up until a few weeks before the election.

    Reagan lost two primaries before winning in 1980. He was no Republican insider.

    OK

    Current scorecard 0-3 in finding any Republican who can name a single candidate that they like

    Can we get a shut-out?
