    It's going to come down to Gingrich and Romney, and I think in the end Gingrich will edge out Romney because people still have a problem with the Mormon thing, and they think he's just another generic, Washington insider. He doesn't have any bold ideas. He just wants to "tinker around the edges" as they've been saying, and the country needs more than that.

    It will be Romney and he will clean obama's clock. Not because a few republicans are bothered by his being a mormon, although far less will be bothered than you think, but because far more voters consider themselves independent than hard right Christian conservatives. No one can win without the independents and they have had it with obama.

    Even among the hard right Christians, they'd rather have an American mormon than a foreign Muslim.

    any combination of a Romney/Gingrich/Cain/Elmer Fudd ticket is fine with me. Just get Meechelle out of the white house while they still have a years supply of burgers and wings in the freezer !!!

    Romney
    Perry
    Gingrich

    Romney will win the GOP primaries and look at the other GOP candidates for potential VP choice

    He will say " These guys are nuts......I'm not running with them"

    Probably. It's going to look alot like Bush vs. Kerry. Hard fought and close..but with Obama winning.

    I'm still thinking Pawlenty or Huntsman.

    Either of those guys would be a good choice. They don't over shadow him.

    I doubt two Mormons would run together

    I'm thinking Marco Rubio as VP
