So here's a question for those good at predictions. It sounds like we could have a large number of candidates running in 2016....of these potential candidates, who do you THINK will get the nomination...not who you want to. I realize there are other names that are missing, but this is a pretty full list. Jeb Bush Ben Carson Chris Christie Ted Cruz Lindsey Graham Mike Huckabee Bobby Jindal John Kasich Rand Paul Mike Pence Rick Perry Mitt Romney Marco Rubio Paul Ryan Scott Walker
Is your caps-lock key stuck?

It's unfortunate, but there are some completely unrealistic people on this site. They believe that nominating someone like Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz will suddenly caused many Democrats to switch over, and most Independents to vote GOP. While I still agree that the nation is fiscally conservative, it's no longer socially conservative on many issues, and waging a campaign against gay marriage (as was done successfully in 2004 with Bush's re-election) isn't a strategy 10 years later.
Nicely worded
Very well said Rob2. Multiple people have the option of running in the primary, and the candidate desired by most will get the nomination. If enough people do not want Mitt, they will coalesce around another candidate.
I don't agree about Romney, but do agree about Palin and Ted Cruz.
I agree here, and judging from the responses on townhall which used to be anti-Romney, it appears that many are warming up to the idea of him running again. I think they realize he would actually be a Great President, and has been proven right time and again since the 2012 election.
Totally agree with you...he is one of the most qualified candidates to be president.
I'm not sure why so many on here are whining about Romney again. Give it a break. I would think that some of the more extremists in the party would be happy to have Romney run again as that would further break up the more mainstream/moderate vote in the primaries (between Romney, Bush, and Christie). With Romney out, that gives Jeb a better chance of winning the nomination, and I would hope that more people would prefer Romney over Jeb, but maybe not.
