1. At this point, Christie

 

He is the one trying to pretend he is a moderate and can get the Democratic votes too, but also the conservative votes. He is trying to play both sides of the fence.

16. It's true they usually run a quasi moderate

like Romney.

Christie will attract some Latino, Black voters. Not so sure about women.

He'll attract low info voters who like him on Saturday Night Live, etc.

Many citizens are lame enough to vote for the entertainment value of a candidate - see Reagan 1980

20. yep, and I'm also expecting his "fatness" to help him, in an ironic way

 

He will either lose a lot more weight, and he will then brag about it on the campaign trail, about how he has great discipline and willpower and so on, or he will remain fat, and all the fat people in America (and let's face it, we are an obese nation) will look at him as "one of them" an average guy carrying excess weight, and they can relate to him.

2. 2012 again.

It'll be another clown race for awhile, then someone people might actually vote for will appear, likely Christie, as the previous poster mentioned.

3. Marco Rubio. I predicted Romney four years out.

They will want to take a chance to carve away just enough Latinos, who want to see a Latino President in their lifetimes.

And Ted Cruz is un-electable, and they know it.

6. Ted Cruz is not an option he can't Run.

Rick Scott won't even be able to win Florida if he were to run again as our Governor.

My best guess is it's going to be a somewhat moderate that has not been on the national stage. Their party is on life support & they know it.

10. George Romney ran and he was born in Mexico

One of Cruz' parents was an American citizen at the time of his birth, that confers native born citizenship.

12. I stand corrected, I did not know his mother was born in Delaware.

I do believe though he has about as much chance as getting the Republican nomination as my dog Prissy does.

7. Why, the "Great Champion", Jeb Bush of course..............

Naturally to appease the Koch funded devision of the GOP someone standing for freedumb that has a christan background and high moral standards will be selected for VP.
I'm thinking Scott Walker.

11. can't be Walker if Jeb Bush gets the nomination

the President and the Vice President can't be from the same state. That's why Cheney found a "home" in Wyoming.

14. Ted Cruz because the Rs just can't help themselves.

 

Christie will never make it out of the GOP primary a viable candidate. He's pissed off the teabaggers and they, the fringiest of the fringe, are the ones that vote in the GOP primary.

15. We wish!

That would be something.

Wouldn't be too good for our international reputation, but it would be pretty entertaining in a horror movie kind of way.

22. I don't think you can count out the Red Skull

Yes, he's a bit of a dark horse, but I think his message really resonates with the Tea Party faithful.
