Let's just assume for a minute that Obama is re-elected. Name your top three personal choices (the individual you want to win the nomination) for President in 2016.

For me...

1) Rick Santorum
2) Chris Christie
3) Marco Rubio

The entire country is pretty much Republican.

I specified top three because I'd have a ton of honorable mentions (with Toomey included in mine, too)! Tongue

Honestly, I'll probably have a very difficult time choosing one Republican in 2016 Tongue Depending on where I go to college, I might vote strategically based on what state I'm living in.

Of any of the likely candidates, Rand Paul would be the closest, and I doubt I could even support him given his descent into Republican hackishness.

Schweitzer, Cuomo, Gillibrand, or Klobuchar. Aside from Schweitzer I can't really narrow the rest down to a number.

The problem with free speech is that it’s hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think them—how to think freely at all—and ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

No names.

I'm looking for someone who can credibly make campaign finance / crony capitalism the top issue, or a woman.
