#rsrh The Day I Have Been Dreading.

Today: Wednesday, November 3, 2010.

You see, for two years I have been saying at every opportunity “Look, we should hold off on even starting to hash out who should be our nominee in 2012 until after the ’10 midterms, OK?”

Guess what?

    I like Mike Pence, but he’s got a snowball’s chance in Vegas.

    I’d take T-Paw over Mitt any day. Christie, Rubio, and Haley are all too fresh and are needed at home besides.

    Jindal for Veep?

  • Jim B says:

    I started writing a long post, but then I realized that it all boiled down to this: picking the ideal Republican candidate will depend on where the country is at the end of 2011 economically and politically.

    Different candidates bring different strengths and weaknesses to the party, and it will be a matter of finding the best fit for that particular situation. I’m more concerned about preparing the battlefield right now.

  • Finrod says:

    Yeah, I’ve been dreading it too.

    What scares me even more is that with the exception of W in 2000, look at the recent Republican nominees that weren’t a sitting President: McCain, Dole, Bush Sr., Reagan– all of them were the person that ran runner-up in the previous nomination run.

    Granted, that worked well with Reagan, but look at who that would give us this time: Mitt Romney.

  • Phil Smith says:

    Okay, let’s be honest. We don’t have a good candidate that is ready at this time.

    I say we settle for a good candidate.

  • Terry Ott says:

    For me, Mitch Daniels is the most attractive. Plenty of the right kind of experience, should know Inside Politics, heartland conservative. Kind of in the background right now, which I think is a good thing. Better to come on strong later on than to be a front-runner from the get-go unless the person is hands down THE very best and very obvious choice. And nobody really is that.

  • Metzger says:

    Like most, all I can tell you is who shouldn’t run. McCain, Huckabee, Palin and Romney.
