Palin? Seriously? She and her family are a complete joke. I'd be fine with Walker and some other candidates, but Palin and Cruz would be at the bottom of the list.
You are right in that he will make it a circus. Ugh. He's the Howard Dean on the right...should make the debates have some interesting highlights.
In 1979 I'm sure the GOP establishment was weary of Reagan as well as he was embarking on his 3rd run for the White House.
How might our country have been different if the party viewed Reagan as a candidate from the past in 1979.
I'm not a big fan of Rand, but he would certainly be better than Cruz.
For starters, Romney would end Obamacare, so that's not much of an issue now. That debate has been had already. Second, unlesss you are able to change the primary process that's been in place for years (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina), Iowa still does matter. Typically half of the candidates drop out after Iowa, and several more after South Carolina. I would prefer 4 regional super-primaries personally, but until that happens, polls in Iowa are a big deal.
You are right that West is unelectable, but I would add Cruz to that list too.
The third time was a charm for Reagan...perhaps Romney feels the same for his chances.
Very well said
In sizing up the potential 2016 field, I think Romney didn't see anyone stand out, and with Jeb's early entry being super moderate, Romney realized he's much more conservative than Jeb. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I think Bush's people seemed annoyed this weekend on the Sunday morning shows as they expected Jeb to easily win the nomination.
