Figure it's never too early to guess.

The Poll Question is " Who will the nominee be "

The question is not " Who do you want the nominee to be".

It is not "Who do I think has the best chance of beating Obama" for you right-leaners.

It is not "Who do I think has the least chance of beating Obama" for you left-leaners.

I'm envisioning this more like our NCAA pick'em contests .. just a friendly competition to see if anyone is brave enough to pick an underdog or if a favorite wins... To see who can properly guess the front runner a year in advance.

The poll is public.. your screen name will be seen.

Does this mean we can put together who will think the nominees are and then figure out who the VP's are? When is the deadline for people to throw their hat in the ring?

Not a bad idea.. I'll add a poll question for VP candidate as well.

No deadline.. Not sure if I'm able to close the poll.

I say we wait until a few months or a year before the primaries. VP's can be anyone.

Hell, I didn't think Palin was on anyone's radar, and I doubt anyone thought there would be anyone idiotic enough to pick Biden.

I think the fun is picking now.. not 9 months from now when there may only be 4-5 serious names.

And There is the "Other" slot... so for example if someone think Gov Christie is bluffing and will in fact throw his hat in the ring.. Be bold, Pick other, the Post who your "Other" pick is.

There doesn't have to be a winner here.. a year from now might find us with a Dan Quale/Jon Voight ticket and all of us will have been proven to not be psychic... and that's Ok.

The field is way too messy right now to have any idea. It's a total mystery.

Since I can't answer who I think will win, I will break the rules and answer Ron Paul. :D

I think Ron Paul will at least make the Elite 8.

I'm not sure how John Bolton got a slot on the poll but we could have the hair ticket with a Bolton/Trump lineup.

I know he's said "No No Hell No" a few times... but I probably shouldn't have forgotten Gov Christie off the poll.

Sadly, the nominee will be the candidate who most loudly extolls the bible.

Pretty sure that will be Santorum, and he has no shot imo.

Looks like Romney is the biggest contender for Pres. Obama. So far they are in a statistically even, but Romney has a slight edge among registered voters.

<link>

I find his saying interesting, "Barack Obama has failed America."

Looks like it will all depend on the economy, Carville is hysterical.

Romney has a good chance in the general election, however he'll never get there. GOP will never nominate him.

I'm afraid you might be correct.

What do you think is the main issue to keep the GOP from doing it? I think if the poll numbers are high enough, I don't think they will have much of a choice to if they're smart.

But then again, politics isn't always require the brightest decision makers when it comes to people who try to play "king maker."

The biggest issue is the GOP purety test. All of the old positions he took while in Mass. just will not do for todays Republicans. He's got to do to many flip flops to reconcile the Mass. Romney with todays Romney. Also,I hope I am wrong on this point but I do not think the Evangelicals will vote for a Morman.

Well, history showed that the same question was asked when Kennedy ran for office. In fact, from what I remember in research, there was a considerable amount of hatred towards Kennedy for that reason that it was almost as vile (if not more so) than what was thrown at Clinton, Bush, and Obama.

Personally, I don't have a problem with voting for a Mormon, my main issue is that he keeps pandering to the religious right.

Tell you what, if Hillary ran, I'd vote for her, though.

The reason he keeps pandering to the religious right is because they are almost exclusively Republican and have a huge sway in the primary process. Back in '60 they were more evenly distributed, allowing Kennedy to get the nomination and the election.

Someone decent please step up and make this interesting.

OK, OK: I'm in! It will take a little massaging, but I'm every bit the deficit hawk that Perry is a Christian. Work with me here. The good news is, I don't take bribes, have *** sex encounters in public, improvise history, employ illegals, or dabble in witchcraft. And I can totally explain the LSD and the checks to Planned Parenthood.

America doesn't want politicians that can explain jack ****. America wants politicians that gently bend us over and rape us in the ass. They tell us that the feeling of penetration is that of illegal immigrants, China, and an implausible environmental problem. No! They aren't raping us. They wouldn't do that. We wouldn't let them. But they keep doing it. They know. We know. They won't do it again! Not this time. They promised it.

They'll do it again. And again. And we'll keep putting out. We're a prostitute that feels lucky to sleep with the man that has robbed her. Sadly, we aren't alone. This is what it is to be human.
