    It is amazing the older we get, the closer the elections seem to run together.

    I think that they would make a great combination for compromisers as neither one is a true conservative.

    Consider Senator Rubio's stance on immigration and also the fact that his parents weren't US citizens (which according to some Tea Partyistas makes him not a natural-born citizen), I think he'd be too liberal and not constitutionally eligible for Aaron. In addition considering you said it was unfortunate that women were allowed to vote, I'm surprised at your support for a woman being on the ticket.

    As for my two cents:
    Huntsman-Rice or Huntsman-Portman.

    No to Palin, yes to Rand Paul.

    Rubio, I don't know.

    Isn't Marco Rubio the same gentleman who said that "if he lived in a poor country and had the opportunity to come to another even illegally to get a crack at a good life he would also come illegally ?" (not verbatim).
    If he is that gentleman, then I am retracting support.
    That's the same as "if I were a poor man and had the opportunity to break into your house illegally to steal, I'd do it".

    Don't buy the lies of the Democrats. Palin scares Socialists to death. It appears so does Rubio.

    Palin is done in the GOP for now, unless it is for a Senatorial run in Alaska. Maybe if she is a Senator for 6-12 years and improves her political and rhetorical skills, she could make a comeback. But right now, [some of] her critics are right - she does not have the gravitas to be President. I like her thoughts/positions on most things, but I have to admit - she is annoying and does not present herself very well.

    I like any combination of Rubio/Paul/Carson/Jindal for 2016. Make no bones about it - Carson is in the game. His speech at the prayer breakfast was no mistake.

    Not one of these combinations are a winning team. Must admit though, that I like it that way!

    I would like to see Hillary Clinton head the democratic ticket. I don't have a VP pick.

    I would love it if Palin was on the republican ticket, but she won't run again.

    I could get behind this ticket. I do have a slight worry that Rand Paul get caught saying something stupid, something reactionary that would alienate independent voters.

    For president I would choose a Governor and there are many who are qualified:

    Governor Walker of Wisconsin,

    Governor McDonnell of Virginia,

    Governor Pence of Indiana.

    My choice for Vice President would be either of the following:

    Senator Ayotte of New Hampshire,

    Governor Martinez of New Mexico,

    Governor Falin of Oklahoma,

    Senator Rubio of Florida.

    I like Governor Perry of Texas but someone on this Board claims he is a crook and he could never live down that gaffe in the debates. Governor Palin has been savaged so much by the leftists in the press and on this Forum I just don't believe she could overcome the image they have created. There were also some serious attacks against Governor Haley of my own state, apparently by Republican competitors, that she would have to overcome. Governor Brewer of Arizona is a tough lady but again the leftists have created a nightmarish image of her.

    Unfortunately these images once created are hard to overcome if you are a Republican. Nothing can be revealed about a democrat that affects the leftist view of them unless it is revealed they are pro-life.

    I know; four more years of Obama/Biden would suit you and all the other radical leftists in the country just fine. Both are lazy motor mouths who have slopped at the government trough all their life. Many of their supporters are too lazy to get a job, preferring to love off welfare. As a consequence we have a flood of illegals who will work.

    I don't blame the Jews in this country for pushing for a pro-Israel policy. I blame the dispensational doctrine that has recreated a belief among many in this country that the Jews are still the "chosen" people of God.

    I have said before that I favor our support of Israel because they are a thorn in the side of Islam
