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

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.

No names.

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