I think the field for 2012 is pretty well-known by now, so if Obama is able to be reelected, who would likely run and be viable in 2016?

Gary Johnson would be unchallenged in the primary on his way to re-election.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

This, plus Sue Lowden, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and maybe Rand Paul.

If you're going by potential, then yes.

If you're going by viable, I'd count out Lowden, Jindal, probably Paul and perhaps Kasich.

I'd say Brown, Thune, Rubio (assuming he wins), Hoeven, and maybe Bob McDonnell.

So a lack of knowledge means I'm not welcome here? I've always wondered why there's a lack of Republicans on this forum and now I'm beginning to see why.

I'm not sure Hoeven would want to run; He is up for re-election that year (Along with Thune and Rubio, but they are more likely in my opinion).

If someone scores in a losing primary campaign or is a flashy running mate in 2012, they'd be in a strong position in 2016.  I also could see Marco Rubio as a presidential candidate in 2016 if he's a senator.  Maybe Jindal.

Tom Campbell (if he wins), Tom Corbett (if he wins), Rand Paul (if he wins), etc. Basically, nobody that is in the field right now.

Scott Brown (if he keeps his seat in 2012), Rand Paul (if he wins), Marco Rubio (if he wins), and always Palin, especially if she's RNC Chair or something (a la Howard Dean in 05). Who knows, really.

The Republican who wins in 2012 is very likely to be renominated, obviously.

Jindal
McDonnell
Pawlenty
Thune
maybe one of the governors to be first elected in 2010, though I don't know who (Walker?  Corbett?)

Of course, Pawlenty depends on how he does in 2012.  Same with Thune, if he decides to run in 2012.

Obviously Tom Delay.  

I doubt Brown would run in 2016, even if he wins a second term. I wouldn't be surprised if he does a governor run at some point. Originally I thought he was running just to get his name out for a gov race.

And non sarcastically, you will have Romney because that is all he knows how to do. He will run, and run, and run, no matter what, and keep changing his persona to fit the bill.

I would think to look at the pool of governors elected this year. We won't know until November, obviously, but I could see Rick Snyder (MI) and Bill Haslam (TN), in particular.

Also, Bob McDonnell and Bobby Jindal. If they don't run or win the nomination in 2012, then Mitch Daniels or John Thune. Maybe Marco Rubio if he wins and forgoes reelection, a la John Edwards in '04.

In no particular order:

Daniels (depending on what happens in 2012)
Thune (depending on what happens in 2012)
Jindal
Rubio (if he beats Crist in November)
McDonnell
Petraeus (depending on how Iraq goes)
John Hoeven
Rand Paul (if the Republicans are still in the Wilderness Phase of the Tea Party)

I think George Allen should climb back on the horse.

Allen is too damaged by Macacagate to be a good Presidential candidate and he'd need to return to elected office before running for President. Unfortunately for him, there are no elected offices where he would easily get elected.

That might actually help him in the SC primary and it wouldn't matter in the Iowa primary.  I'm sure he'll win a large percentage of the Jewish vote if he was the presidential candidate since he's half Jewish on his mother's side.
