    As far as I know, no one has started a thread like this. I would like to hear everyone's ideas on how likely this is.

    I think it's too early to tell. If the election were this year I'd say no.

    Even if he runs, he doesn't have a chance. The Republican party is through with that family, and the voters are even more fed up than the party is. No chance he could even win the primary.

    Let's hope so. I think they should run Romney.

    No, for another Bush. I would vote for Mitt. I do believe he was the smartest person running in the republican race. The media really got behind McCain, because they said it was his turn. I was really pissed when the said it was "his turn." I'M trying to figure if politicians take a number and when it's your number...it's your turn. I do a lot of wondering about those kind of things.

    The media battered Romney - they wanted McCain to be the nominee as he was among the weakest of candidates.

    Only when he chose Palin did they let out a collective "Oh shit".

    From then on it was the destruction of Palin in full force.

    I don't believe Palin was quite ready for prime time, but she is far more capable and intelligent than the character assassination unleased against her. The left feared that selection, and did whatever necessary to reduce her to a cartoon character. Sadly, the McCain campaign did little to combat this, and by the last few weeks of the campaign, were in fact contributing to it.

    Romney would have ran a far more effective campaign - and he would be far more capable of handling this economic mess than the "spread the wealth" Obama...
