Looks like Schweitzer is edging out Feingold for the Democrats... There's a lot of Schweitzer love on this site. He strikes me as wholly appropriate for a forum with so many liberals and libertarians.

He has cross-over appeal too.

Totally.

If the 2016 race (which, ironically, will be the first POTUS election I can vote in) is between Schweitzer and someone like Rick Santorum, I'll vote Schweitzer in a heartbeat. The field of Republicans for 2016 is really seeming like a bunch that I could happily vote for any one of them.

It's amazing how desperate people get when they want to make unhealthy and unnatural things natural just to make the slim minority of those with socially, unethical, and unnatural logic feel a little better about their flaws.

I'm a foreign policy voter, and Christie's persona, while probably effective in dealing with opponents, is not exactly conductive to diplomacy.

I don't know that much about Schweitzer.

So aside from his vetoing legislation from the Republican legislature in Montana, what makes him popular?

Schweitzer's a liberalitarian, and this forum has a lot of liberals and libertarians.

This is interesting.  May shape out to be yet another round where the Martinez and Clinton supporters decide their respective primaries.

Schweitzer, so much. He's incredibly good at masking moderate and even liberal positions (the anti-Citizens United rhetoric, attempts to move Montana towards Canadian-style healthcare, demands for BP to clean up after themselves) in populist rhetoric.

If Romney loses 2012, there are a lot of good candidates for 2016. I'd probably support the Republican, but I wouldn't hate the Democrat on the ticket nearly as much as I hate Obama. And I'd like to think it would work the other way, too. Martinez, Christie, and Daniels can't look that terrible to the Democrats here.
