I hope that Rick Santorum does not get the nomination beacuse I think his ideas and positions are dangerous and destructive to our country.

You're gonna LOVE Phil.

I will take this troubled child under my wing and lead him on the right path.
I actually agree with Rick Santorum on most economic issues and admire him for standing up to the principles he believes in 100%, but I think he is a tad bit too hardline on foreign poicy in my opinion and his positions on social policies are too extreme for my tastes.

I can vouch for this.  In my social circle, we regularly sing songs, or write poetry, about the fabled exploits of Gov. Haley.

I hope Martinez does run. I don't think she'd win it in 2016, but I think she'd garner enough support and attention to be a serious contender for 2020 or 2024. I really think this woman has a good shot at being sworn in as the first female president.

In total agreement with you, except I could see a surprise primary win from her in 2016 (2020/24 is more likely however). I've always liked her story, but seeing her speech in full makes me more confident than ever in saying Martinez has a very bright political future.

2016 will see Christie for sure, but I expect that campaign to go bust pretty quick. Too much fodder for the dems, and too moderate in my opinion to rally more behind him. Rubio may also be a serious contender in 2016, but depending on the dem selection could prove to be a poor choice given his vulnerabilities.

If she doesn't make it in '16, she ought to try to become a senator after her governorship so she's still in the spotlight. Really, she has until the 2028 election to remain in contention if she plays her cards right (she'd be 69).

Santorum is too much of a nut job to be a viable candidate.  He may be naive enough or self centred enough to believe he could win the nomination, but the truth of the matter is that the Republicans are not going to nominate him for anything.  I think we all know that.

I don't see this in 2016... but maybe an election or two after that one, based on the RNC, I see Mia Love running as a candidate who would likely gather a good deal of support and who would win the primaries were she to run at that time.
