Well, I tried in vain to get the poll from Gop Bloggers and Blogs for Bush to work. For some reason when I cut and pasted the code it didn't work no matter what I did. So I said, I'll just do my own poll. Mike did one awhile back and many of us voiced our opinions very clearly :-). We were supposed to award 5 points either between different candidates or all for our favorite. Troll cracked me up with his descriptions so I took the time to do my own. Here were my descriptions of the different choices in candidates:
John McCain--Over my dead body & when h*ll freezes over and any other strong phrase you can think of.
Bill Frist--Ditto Troll's assessment--no chance in h*ll
Chuck Hagel & George Pataki--Gag me with a spoon!!
Mike Huckabee--Don't have a clue who this guy is which means he doesn't have a prayer!!
Sam Brownback & Newt Gingrich--Great guys but I don't think they have a prayer of winning the nomination let alone the presidency.
Mitt Romney--not a true conservative thus not a good choice in my opinion
Tom Tancredo & George Allen--Great conservatives but not sure if they have enough charisma to pull off a general election.
Jeb Bush--Love this man a ton but like Troll says its not his time yet!!
Condi Rice & Rudy Giuliani--I love these two!! Rudy is a little too liberal on social issues but I love his passion & justice oriented views!! I give Condi 4 points and Rudy 1 point even though Condi says she won't run. She would be my first choice.
So now you know how I feel let me know your takes. Here are the candidates to pick from:
And somebody please tell me who Mike Huckabee is??? I don't know anything about him.
UPDATE: A commenter has a site for Mike Huckabee with a lot of info about him. I have to admit after reading about him I am pretty impressed. I will need to hear him speak before really forming an opinion but on paper he looks pretty good. Here is the link: Mike Huckabee President 2008.
