None of those three stand a snowball's chance in hades. John Cornyn is about as corrupt, right wing and divisive as they come. Romney is the biggest flip-flopping stuffed shirt of all time, and seems to think the number one qualifications for president are a nice smile, nice teeth, and nice hair. Sorry, Mitt. Finally, Mark Sanford may have had a chance before he stupidly tried pulling that political stun of turning down stimulus funds. By doing so he put his own career interests ahead of the interests of the people of SC, and thereby proved himself totally unfit for the WH. Better come up with some more, wingers. These don't and won't cut it.

I would respectfully like to point out that there were very few people who thought our current President had much of a chance either. This is a silly article. It reminds me of the media folks who were yapping about the democrat prospects the day after President Bush was elected in 2004. It was four years of endless blather, and President Obama was not at the top of the list. From my observations, it seems that the current needs of the country have as much or more to do with the candidate that eventually gets nominated. There is just no way to predict what the country's climate will be in a few years.

Publicans? Publicans? We don't need no stinking Publicans! none of the above suit me the best. If Mr Norquist wants him, that is an automatically suspicious choice - he infamously said he wanted to shrink government mall enough to drown in the bathtub. Must be wealthy enough not to care about his fellow man
