Who do you most want to get the nomination? Who do you least want? Put in order and explain why. John Huntsman Mitt Romney Tim Pawlenty Newt Gingrich Ron Paul Sarah Palin Michele Bachmann Rick Perry I could live with any of the top three. While I think Obama would stand a better chance of beating the others, the election of Ronald Reagan taught me that the American people are perfectly capable of electing small-minded racists and bigots. - Huntsman, having worked for Obama, is probably the most moderate. - Romney is a known entity and would mold his views to popular opinion. - Pawlenty is conservative, but would be pragmatic and not overly partisan. - Gingrich is scary, but would be competent. He'd probably be like a Reagan. - Sarah Palin would be an embarrassment; she comes across as an idiot. - Ron Paul would largely legalize bigotry and cut programs for even the truly needy. - Michele Bachmann is plain nuts, and is too unstable to be president. - Rich Perry is downright scary; he'd try to impose a Christian version of a Sharia state.
