Which Republican Should Run In 2008?

It's early, but to balance it out with the Edwards 2008 forum, here it goes. I know most of you are left, but you can participate anyways. Feel free to post some that you might like, or at least wouldn't mind having as president. This is optimistically a 2008 thread, so any Bush-bashing on this thread is childish, or unnessesary to say the least.

Let the games begin!

I'd say John McCain for the job and a black republican for vice president. McCain has earned respect from both parties, and has proven himself to do the right thing, even when the rest of the party isn't. A black republican, because it appeals to minorities, and it will overcome the "racist" stereotype. Then, most of the real white racists will probably vote democratic, and I'd like to see the opposing reactions.

Lots of you might like Rudy...

If he were the Republican Candidate, I would have to vote third-party. He may bring people together, but he is pro-choice.

M.F. Wannabe, I simply consider myself pro-Life not anti-Choice (I can't imagine anyone except terrorists being anti-Life); however, the bigger issue has to be anti-terrorism and pro-security such as no Arab Muslim-hijacked American commercial jetliners slamming into our landmark buildings with rampant murder, massive damage, endless injuries, loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs, etc. I believe that when people think of RUDY!, they think how he remarkably responded, led N.Y.C. and inspired people everywhere on and after September 11th, 2001. RUDY's outstanding and effective speech recently at the Republican National Convention in N.Y.C. further secured his top spot status.

In a brand-new Gallup poll released today, and reported on FNC's "HANNITY & COLMES", RUDY! is clearly the #1 choice of Republicans with about 50%. JOHN McCAIN with 27% is a distant runner-up.

Note: This is pre-passage of a constitutional amendment which would qualify the Governator AHNOLD as a Republican presidential candidate.


For more on RUDY at my website, read some of his letters to the STONEWALL Veterans' Association at:

Rudy needs more experience if he's going to run. Maybe take on Hillary for her senate seat?

Rudy will never make it in today's Republican party. I believe he's also not strongly against gay marriage, if I'm not mistaken...?

I don't like the chances for a moderate in today's GOP, it's too hard core right. That's too bad because I prefer one. Hell, I even crossed over and voted for McCain in the primaries in 2000. I'm afraid we moderate-preferrers are out of luck. Damn.

not like he was mayor of the largest city in america for 8 years... which technicaly is one of the 25 largest economies in the world... besides his time in the justice department... but yea... being a senator where you don't have to lead will be muuuuch better for him than what he's already done...

[/sarcasm]

i think the people who consider the GOP to be too far to the right to nominate someone like rudy or mccain are missing the boat. especially once bush puts a few right leaning judges on the bench... rudy's popularity is SOOO high right now that the GOP would be stupid not to run him.

fine... maaaybe they'll lose a few of the extreme right guys. but really... who else are they gonna vote for? if they have a choice between a moderate republican and a moderate or liberal democrat, they ain't votin' for the democrat. plus, for every hard core righty who doesn't vote or votes for some no name 5th party guy, there will be tons of undecided voters AND democrats who would vote for rudy or mccain.

i'd like to believe that the reason the republicans are winning so much is simply because they've been smarter than the democrats. if they don't run a man who's approval ratings right now are STILL through the roof just because he's a moderate, then they'd be falling back into stupidity. because frankly... all the big time republicans that have mass appeal right now are all moderates... mccain, rudy, arnold, etc. if not one of them, then who?

Wow... so being pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage means you're an extremist left winger of the party?

You're right headache all the big Republican names are moderates. So maybe the situation isn't as bleak as I think it is. That would make me pretty happy.
