What governors would you like to see run for president? Which ones might run?

I know Pataki has been mentioned, but supposedly he's not popular in his home state lately.

Warner is another possibility. I don't know if he could carry Virginia or not, but it'd depend on the Republican nominee.

How about Frank Murkowski from Alaska? He seems like a pretty solid GOPer: http://www.issues2000.org/states/ak.htm

I like Warner, Scweitzer, or Bredensen. Maybe Eliot Spitzer (who I expect will be part of the class of 2006), although like Scweitzer he would be a better nominee in 2012 (if necesary).

As for Republicans I'd suggest Romney or Owens;

Private reasons great or small
Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
To make all that should be killed to crawl
While others say don't hate nothing at all

I think either Gov. Sanford of South Carolina or Gov. Easley of North Carolina could run in 2008.  I don't think that Gov. Purdue of Georgia would have any hope of success.  He plays OK in Georgia, but I don't think that he could hope to do well in either Iowa or New Hampshire.
