    There is any interesting discussion going on over at Mitt Romney Central; the poll posted there proposes the following hypothetical:

    I wanted to see what y'all thought about this hypothetical... please reply with sound reasons why or why not a particular candidate would be good or bad for a run against Obama in 2012 (2011) :razz:

    I would have liked to have seen Petraeus as an option, as well.... Heaven knows that most these other guys don't know much about the conflict overseas. However, since he hasn't formally launched a PAC to start any sort of fundraising, I'm not sure he intends on running for any office. I suppose the purpose of the poll at Mitt Romney Central was limiting it to those that are believed to actually run against Obama next election. (although, I highly doubt Newt will, and even Huckabee seems like a maybe to me.)

    Pawlenty. Although i really do think Romney would be a great option for 2012. A somewhat Conservative successful businessman is exactly what this nation needs at this point. Right now we have a bunch of inept Neo-Marxist Socialists running things which they know nothing about. Most of these people have never even held real jobs in their entire lives. Most are either career politicians or career academics. Romney actually has some real experience in running successful businesses and isn't a Neo-Marxist Socialist so i think he would be the logical choice in 2012. Pawlenty is a good man though and i could consider him as well. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Thanks for your post. :)

    I would have no problems voting for Palin--Gingrich or Huckabee. Any of them would be better than what we have right now.

    If Romney doesn't run I will do what I did in the last election and write him in! But If I had to pick between the four I would go with Pawlenty, he is a good fiscal conservative!

    However, I like possible candidates like Michael Steele! I also like Meg Whitman, the former CEO of ebay, who brought the company from $4.7 mil to $7.7 bil!

    Huckabee: A fairtax man, you have to love that! However, he seems very naive, doesn't believe in evolution and the how I/P situation would explode.

    Palin: Although she has strong supporters, she would be the left's dream pick because Obama's dog would beat her. Palin is way too stupid for the job and has way to many holes for me!

    Newt: I just don't like something about him!

    I like your insight... I think Michael Steele would be a great alternative should Romney up and die abruptly. I like Meg, too--- of course, let's hope she just makes it as Cali Gov. so she can endorse Romney in the primaries. :razz:

    NOTA.

    Pawlenty is a career squish and Juan McQuisling ass spelunker.
