    Don't look now but Chiefess Elizabeth Warren is going to wound Hill-Rod in the Dem Primary.

    Walker from Wisconsin? He's good, but I want Paul, Cruz, or Rubio in 2016... In that order.

    So you want the GOP candidate to garner, in order, 20%, 13% or 40% of the vote in the general presidential election?

    Those were purely my predictions based on the various issues those candidates have.

    Gov Walker with Rubio as VP would be a hard ticket to defeat

    Christie will cave in to the dems.

    It would be insanely easy to defeat. Walker is a Koch puppet that has been a disaster in Wisconsin.

    I think I'd rather see a Rand Paul/Rubio ticket, personally.

    Walker still has to win reelection in Wisconsin before he can run for president, and a second term as governor is by no means a done deal.

    If the Republicans actually want the presidency in 2016, a Chris Christie-Susana Martinez ticket would be their best alternative. Put Rafael Edward Cruz on the top of the ticket and it will be 1964 all over again.

    Walker is probably the best overall candidate in terms of maximizing turnout of the votes a GOP candidate needs to win, the majority of which always have and always will comes from the conservative base, national security-realistic libertarians, evangelicals, etc. He can get them without losing the much more marginal contribution from moderates/centrists/independents.

    Christie himself might have a chance, but only because, for all his political and ideological shortcomings for conservatives, his refusal to put up with overt leftist pap makes it easier to tolerate him.

    Walker was behind in the polls in the recall and got more votes than he did in the first election

    Given Clinton's "rock star" status according to the fat white corporate media, the number of undecideds intrigues me. It doesn't look good for Hillary in that regard since we've had the media worshiping her every move for over 20 years now. The 43% is even less than the 47%

    10% of Wisconsinites said they would never vote to recall any politician ever. This means his opponent didn't start at 0%, he started at -10% and still almost pulled it off.

    Whatever makes it feel better, I guess. Walker's successes in Wisconsin are a great jumping off point to a Presidential run, including throwing back the recall attempt.
