Cut the number of candidates, and cut the number of allowed votes to two.


EDIT, here's round 1 results.

Rudy Giuliani      (R-NY)       7 (6.3%)
John Thune        (R-SD)       13 (11.6%)
Sarah Palin         (R-AK)       10 (8.9%)
Bobby Jindal        (R-LA)       19 (17%)
Tim Pawlenty      (R-MN)       12 (10.7%)
Mitt Romney       (R-MA)       8 (7.1%)
Mike Huckabee    (R-AR)       12 (10.7%)
Newt Gingrich     (R-GA)       5 (4.5%)
Charlie Crist        (R-FL)       18 (16.1%)
Fred Thompson   (R-TN)       8 (7.1%)




I voted Jindal and Thune, who until today I had no idea how tall Thune was until I saw him towering over the new Republican Senate Leadership, even John Cornyn, who is enormous.

Seconded.

Why isn't Newt included?  As of right now, I'd say he's the most likely to get the nomination.

I voted Romney and Jindal.

Toasty!

I'm rooting for the same people as Daniel Adams, but Romney or Huckabee would work also.

I think Gingrich would be the best candidate if Obama is somewhat successful and likely to be re-elected.  He'd probably lose but would provide a service in putting new ideas on the table for Republicans to run with in the future.  While someone like Charlie Crist would be more electable, if he lost it would only set the party back, IMO. 

If Obama is vulnerable, I would want Romney because I think he'd be the best President.

Christ seems like the most intelligent, competent person on the list, so he's probably got no shot.

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

Sarah Palin is overvalued.  Her support is mainly a backlash against perceived mistreatment of her by the media.  She is not a leader in the GOP as her only selling point is energy policy, and that is becoming less and less of an issue everyday (gas prices are averaging almost half of what they were when McCain selected her). 

Huckabee is flirting with another run, but I think he likes his current gig and really resents the abrasivenss that is inevitable in a presidential campaign.  It all depends on how his TV show is doing in two years, IMO.  And even if he did get in, his appeal isn't that broad.

It was a tough call for me between Jindal and Thune.

Pawlenty and Romney, I guess. Jindal is a close third.

Gas prices are where they are right now because of the recession. Expect that to change once we're out of it.

It's a shame that dropping gas prices didn't have a positive effect on the Republican ticket on Election Day...well, enough to keep North Carolina and Indiana, that is, so at least my prediction could have been right on the $$.
