    Media boost Brown into GOP presidential mix | D.C. Now | Los Angeles Times

    I like how the article says Huckabee has "years" of national political experience.

    Out of the people on the poll, I'd love to see a Romney/Brown ticket. Both are left enough from the right to draw in independents, but obviously close enough to the right to garner votes from the "base." Romney brings fiscal responsibility, and Brown brings social understanding. It would be a tough ticket for Obama to beat those two, I think.

    I hope more possibilities will emerge in the next years time.

    It'll never work. No way the Republican Base in the south turns out for two yankees from Mass.

    Its Romney's turn. I'd like to see Romney/Petraeus on the 2012 GOP ticket. Romney has the smarts to fix the economy and Petraeus has the smarts to tone down the Defense Department for a few years until the deficit is checked.

    Except Romney is mormon and too Liberal for the GOP to vote for him. And the GOP has no real clue where Petraeus stands on the issues. If he's even socially Liberal a bit, they will not give him their support.

    You seem to not realize that Petraeus wants to keep our troops in various places a long time. If you think it's possible to keep the Defense Department "toned down" for a few years and keep up two wars then you're being delusional. (No offense.)

    Romney and Palin are the most frequently mentioned choices in a recent Gallup poll, when respondents are asked to name their preferred candidate. Huckabee comes in far lower down the list.

    If Mitt can win the nomination, I can't imagine southern cons sitting home and letting the chance to be rid of BO pass them by.

    No such thing as turns. I want to see someone emerge. I like Bob McDonnell, but time will tell.

    You seem to doubt the ability of Republicans to tear down their own.

    See: George W Bush and John McCain in 2000.

    See: Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Rudy, and John McCain in 2008.
