Huntsman would be the best choice.

Probably not Huntsman.

We don't know how many cars this family has, only that they consume 1/4 of a $60k car per year.

Bushie, this is not 'Nam, this is religion. There are rules.

The republicanism in this thread is disgusting.

Huntsman. Wouldn't shock me if he was Hillary's replacement no matter who wins.

McCain's too old.  My gut feeling is that he will be retiring from the Senate after his term.

What about an out of the box choice like Ileana Ros-Lehtinen?

Pro-gay marriage.


Edit: Oh, I thought this was the Veepstakes thread.  Sec of state?  Meh, maybe.

Huntsman, while the most obvious choice, has seemed pretty whiny and unhelpful.

Lugar?  Petraeus?  Any particular reason to rule out Condi?

We're talking about Secretary of State here. No sane person would use gay marriage support to determine who gets this position.
Then again, this is Mitt Romney.

Huntsman seems like a good choice. Bolton does not -- too controversial. Lugar isn't bad, either.

This is pretty much like discussing who's going to be Gingrich's Secretary of State.

I still think Chris Christie would be at least offered Attorney General.

Oh yeah, forgot about Christie.  I guess it depends on whether he'd rather run for reelection as governor.  In McDonnell's case, that's not an issue, since he has the 1-term limit anyway.
