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;

Bob Taft would be good. I really like the Guy, But I dont think he is very popular in Ohio.

Indeed.  The Democrat would win Ohio.

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.
