    I appreciate the pro-conservative sentiment, but the cold hard truth is that the middle of the bell-curve of voters are only slightly conservative. Palin is a good cheerleader, not a good leader. If you can't handle a Katie Couric interview you can't handle anything. Judge Roberts made the dems look like monkeys during his interview for the USSC, as a "supreme" needs to be, the best. For president we also need one of the best to "drive the bus". IMHO only Romney has the ability to comprehend the job of president. Obama is finding out the hard way...its easier to campaign than to govern effectively. He'll find out in-spades in 2010 and 2012.

    As the republicans consume themselves

    Romney and Huckabee represent the mainstream candidates capable of winning in 2012

    republicans do a better job of beating down their best canidates than Democrats do

    Although, I do like Thompson's politics, I don't like his drive. He showed nothing in the primaries last year. Romney would be a better fit, especially with the economy, but his LDS religion may be a problem...not for me, but the left would attack it like white on rice.

    Thompson does not have the drive to go for the jugular while Sarah cut her own.

    Romney and Huckabee are more qualified for the national ticket than the other two.

    You have to expect Sarah to show leadership. She knows people with "powers". Her pastor was able to save a village from "witches" and wove "spells of protection" around our dear Sarah. I wonder if he passed on some of this own personal magical powers.

    If only we could get a "sorcerous" elected President. We could take over the world.

    Romney and Huckabee are smart in this instance. They aren't going to try and influence this election by saying they support a neocon. The 2012 Primary will come down to them and personally I think the Huckster will come out on top. I just don't see the Christian base of the GOP allowing a Mormon to get the nomination laying down. So even if Romney were to win, many in the Republican Party won't even vote for him.

    Personally. I think that religion shouldn't even enter into the mix, but having said that....the LDS smear will come from the left, and it will be a constant drum beat from them if he should decide to run.
