    Who do you think is the best bet for Republicans in 2008 to lead the party as its presidential candidate and reunite the economic and social conservatives once again as Ronald Reagan was able to do?

    I don't think he has a prayer, but Mike S. Adams has promisedto follow Reagan's lead.

    We have to hope for true conservative as opposed to this compassionate conservative.

    I say Trent Lott. Though he won't get the black vote, he could get all the states Bush got in 2004, and thus the presidency. Christian conservatives really like him, and he's articulate and funny, too.

    You'd make a lot of democrats very, very happy, if that came true. You could run Allen as his VP.

    No, but if it did happen nothing would change.

    Listen to the McCain message now.

    He must have invoked Reagan 4 or 5 times within a short interview last night. I think he will be the nominee.

    If he keeps up that mantra and gets the party behind him, they'll probably not only win the presidency but probably the House as well in 08. Dem ideals are not popular... they just weren't as unpopular as GOP hypocrisy, scandal, and incompetence.

    Who is Mike Adams?

    How many times do you want to hear the name Strom Thurmond in campaign commercials?... and that's just the primary.

    The nominee needs to be from the west. The VP needs to be from the industrial midwest though some of the likely candidates went kaputt last night. A return of John Kasich to be McCain's number 2 could be a very formidable ticket.

    Our country, IMO, has changed too much for those two entities to ever be reunited.

    Sadly, rbell, you are right on target. The Repubs don't have a prayer in 2008, and that is deplorable, to say the least. Goodbye economic and social conservatism, hello Socialist state.

    Perhaps a Congressman Mike Pence/Governor Tim Pawlenty ticket might meet the criteria of the OP.
