    Paul's my guy, but neither he nor Huckabee will get the nomination. It's between McCain and Romney. McCain is legendarily bad on the issues. Romney I'm not really thrilled about, but he at least seems somewhat respectful of conservative ideas, or... ready to stand up for them, even if it's, ah, new territory for him. McCain is just a liberal asshole, plain and simple. I'm inclined to agree with Rush on this: a McCain nomination is really the end of the GOP as a conservative party. It would then become (if it has not already) just a "not Democrat" party, which ain't worth getting excited about.

    I might come down to a Mormon vs. a Black guy, which means WJ will likely be moving to SouthAfrica as a refugee of tolerance.

    If McCain gets the nomination I'll probably vote for Ron Paul in November. Next Tuesday I'll be casting a vote for Romney.

    At least Rooty's gone though :clap2:

    I wonder if the exodus from the left and the right to RP if the nominees are Mccain and Clinton will, miracle of miracles, get RP elected?

    See as how neither of them are conservatives, it's pretty tough.

    I like Mitt. I think he would be a good candidate. He doesn't frighten me like McCain...

    Haha now you're starting to realize.

    The longer this race goes, the more people are going to start disliking what they have to choose from.

    RP's sitting back, letting the others spend their campaigns dry, and sling mud until the voters are finally fed up.

    RP will be there as the "other" choice.

    It ain't over yet folks. Even the rank and file republicans are starting to wake up. I love it.

    its definitely not over, for McCain and Romney. But its over for Paul. Look the guy has no chance. I am not saying that to be mean. its just reality.

    No, because there aren't enough to them. Most people will still remain party-loyal sheep. Their party could nominate a chimpanzee and they'd vote for it.
