    Christie won't run. He's going to go on a diet and, like Huckabee did, and try to be slimmer for 2016. He knows he's way too fat for the American public to view as presidential.

    Bachmann may very well win Iowa. But it will be downhill from there. Mitt Romney is the apparent front runner. And I don't see anything changing in the near future.

    Romney won't win the nomination. The evangelicals in the south won't vote for a Mormon, that's the true reason the powers-that-be in the republican party are begging Christie, Jeb Bush and begged Daniels. Romney's own son said it after Ronmey lost last time.

    Daniels has announced he won't run. Christie has said time and time again that he is out and the country will not vote for another Bush, right now. Oh, it will be Romney. Even though I agree with you about the south thing, I just dont' see anyone else on the horizon.

    Teabirthers disqualify too many candidates for being "over educated". They want a fellow "Teabirther", not some smart educated intellectual elitist.

    I sse the Tea Party chosing one of three people: Ron Paul, Michelle Bachmann, or Sarah Palin. The establishment GOP will chose Mitt Romney. His being a Mormon and his history with Health Care in Mass. will not go over well with the Tea Party. That is when things get interesting. Since Newt has made a complete a*s of himself, I don't even see a close second to Romney, at this point. He has the name, the money, and the organization.

    And the GOP lost the Senate in 1210 because of the tea party. It was a sure thing untill the Tea party forced the GOP to nominate a couple of loons. :lol:
