    Default Predict 2012 GOP Presidential Nominee

    With this election over and done with, time to start thinking about what's going to go down in two years.

    Thoughts on who the GOP puts up against Obama?

    I personally like Eric Canter from Virginia, young smart and I believe can appeal to the nation.

    Except for the name, you just described me to a tee!

    For good comedy I hope Sarah Palin. She'll be fun to laugh at for a few months.

    Palin will definitely run, though I doubt she gets the nomination.

    If they want to put up a serious challenge they need someone from the center, which is getting more rare for the Republicans. Same problerm Dems had for years and still do to an extant. To win the primaries you have to win over the die-hards, which makes you less attractive for the general election.

    Who ARE the moderate Democrats still left in the party? Seriously. Many were defeated last night and the ones that werent were mostly strong liberals from very liberal districts. Considering the outcomes last night it seems to me that its the Democrats who need to look to the center... not the GOP.

    It certainly wasnt the center that spoke last night.

    The party that takes the center will win a national election. The best way for the Republicans to screw up their victory is to take a hard right turn.
    If you are a die-hard conservative, you will not see the people I judge as moderate Democrats as moderates.

    Did Ronald Reagan take the center? Did Newt Gingrich take the GOP to the center in 1994? Did the GOP turn to the center this time???

    Frankly its when the GOP turns to the center that they get beat. Bush Sr. did it with the tax hikes, Bush Jr. and the GOP Congress turned to the center with the Drug Benefit Bill, the GOP joined with Democrats in any number of big spending pork barrel projects. Where did it get them? Minority status.

    Now tell me again how the GOP wins by looking like Democrats.
