Some major donors and GOP strategists have approached Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe,” about a national run, according to party sources.
Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole of Kansas, the Republican nominee in 1996, told POLITICO that he would like to see Army four-star Gen. David Petraeus — the head of the U.S. Central Command, which includes Iraq and Afghanistan — run for president as a latter-day Ike.

My husband has been talking about Gen. David Petraeus for some time now.. Experience, Credentials, Awareness of International affairs as well as managing a large organization.... I am not sure he would do it. But could you imagine Obama debating a General... I think Gen. David Petraeus would eat Obama alive in the debating arena.... I would pay just to watch that debate!!!
