Unless the Republican voters change drastically in the next four years, you guys are well and truly screwed for the 2016 presidential election. Of those mentioned by name in this article, only Christie is even remotely electable. Not Marco "the earth just MIGHT be 6 thousand years old" Rubio (whom latinos loathe, so don't expect help there) and certainly not looney tunes Rand Paul. In any case, Paul will alienate most of the Republican base with his foreign policy ideas. That leaves Christie. And, of course, after all your tough talk about how he might as well join the Democratic party and how he cost Romney the election, you'll fall in love with him when you realize you're stuck with him.
