Please stop talking about Bob Corker. Please.

Anyway, my vote would be for someone else (assuming he was running). If not, Jindal gets my support.

Though I don't agree with Jindal much politically, he seems to be a very intelligent guy and quite a competent administrator.

Well, you never know.  I probably agree with you, but if Obama sucks, I will likely be firmly in Romney's column.

     Same here. I used to utterly detest Romney, but after seeing what else the GOP has to offer, I've warmed up a lot to him.

Yeah. It all depends on how Obama does in his first term. In all honesty, I'm not expecting much.

Newt Gingrich.

I think Gingrich would be good if Obama has relatively high approval ratings and appears likely to be re-elected.  I wouldn't expect Gingrich to win but I think he would be good at bringing new Conservative ideas to the table, setting the GOP up for future gains and reminding the American people that there is another way to go.

I really like Jindal, but it would depend what kind of campaign he ran... he's a bit too socially conservative for my taste, but if he didn't play that up too much and focused on the economy and foreign policy, I'd probably vote for him.

If not, Romney.
