Ok. Who do you think will run in the Republican and Democratic primaries for President? Who will win the primary? Who do you THINK will win the election? Who do you WANT to win?

Here's my guess.

Obama's gonna hands down win the Dem nomination. A few others might run, too, but Obama's got it.

I think Gingrich will end up getting the nomination since Huckabee isn't running. Republicans won't select Romney since he's Mormon. I actually think Christie, Bachman, and Trump will be stupid enough to run, though.

I want and I think Obama will win again in 2012. He has a 54 percent approval rating. At this point in their term, Clinton had a 40% rating and Bush had 45%. Obama's gonna win.
"And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." Jesus in Luke 11:9-10

Most likely yes. I think if Palin can get the tea party moving again, she might run, but with it being recently quiet (out of the tea party), she won't run, but even if she does, she won't win.

candidates will be
Mitt Romney
Mike Huckabee
Newt Gingrich
Mitch Daniels
Ron Paul
Maybe Pawlenty and Palin too
wishful thinking that Palin is a maybe at best, I hope she doesn't even consider it.
Is there a democratic primary ? I always thought it was just the incumbent

It usually is, but not always.

Also, is that list the order of which you would like to see them?

Look fellas, I am extremely far right on the political axis (as the name says), but here is what I personally think. Sarah Palin could easily win the Republican vote, but does she have the "crossing-over" ability such as Mike Huckabee and win some democrat vote? I think not.

My vote is Ron Paul. I know that he is a libertarian, but seeing how he was able to raise his son to be a U.S. Senator, I think that shows you what he is capable of. If a father can raise a son to be a U.S. Senator, don't you folks think there is some hidden potential behind this fellow? He clearly has great potential.

I bet Mitt Romney gets it but I'd like to see Paul or Daniels get it.

Obama will get Dem.

Either Gingrich or someone who is currently vague and not really in the spot light will get Rep.

Obama will win.

I hope they all die.

- Obama wins Democratic primary

- Romney, Pawlenty, Daniels, Huntsman, Gingrich, Buddy Roemer, Haley Barbour, all certain to run; most likely Huckabee, Palin, Christie, won't run.

- Several weeks of demagoguery and eye-pulling-out tactics, including someone falling due to sex scandal

- Romney wins

- Obama wins general election

Forgot about Santorum. That's likely the sex scandal that will make someone fall.

There shall, in that time, be *rumors* of things going astray, errrm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things wi - with the sort of raffia work base that has an attachment. At this time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

With the way everything is going now, Obama is almost certain to win. With approvals much better then most presidents at this time in their 1st term before him, and the economy slowly getting better (although it did seem to have a jump last month) he is going to get elected.

Unemployment is still near 9%, Obama has gained zero supporters with the job he's done, a large portion of his supporters are put off by all his lies. Obama is in no way "almost certain to win"

Flawed logic, correct conclusion.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

He's made a lot of moves seemingly towards not running, including the termination of his exploratory committee and several statements that would make someone think he's thinking twice, including a basic admission that the Republicans would have a really tough time beating Obama, and that's his own personal opinion. People think he may wait until 2016.

I actually hope this does not happen. So many supposed radicals place faith in him, like yourself, that they might just quite down if he gets elected. What we need is someone even more fascistesque than usual. This will get people mobilized for direct-action.

Oh. Well I guess I couldnt argue with him if those are his reasons for not running. It takes a lot of resources to run for President, and when its kind of clear right now Obama will almost definitly keep office, it would be worth waiting for the next election to run against a non-incumbant presidential canidate.

But on the other hand, if one does have plans for the 2016 election, shouldnt you still give it your all in the 2012 election that holds only certain defeate, just for the name recognition it will earn you? I didnt even know who Ron Paul was until he ran on the national scene, no he's a fairly well known name with a lot of continueing supporters. Mcain had to run in several Primary elections, always loosing before he had the support to be the GOP cannidate.

Granted though; Mcain is so rich he has like 30 houses supposedly so its easier for him to just commit to running a caimpaign on a national ticket. And Huckabee is kind of maintaining face time to a smaller degree with his talk show. The show will only help him win over republicans though, but thats important for him since he didnt win them over in the 2008 election.
