  • I've heard good things about Perry. I'd vote for him. Gingrich is smart and would do a good job, but he's also arrogant and polarizing. I don't know anything about McDonnell or Haley Barbour at all.

  • Nope, I would consider them cannon fodder for the left to tear apart while a real candidate flies under their radar.

     I have thought that as well..... Gingrich doesn't have what it takes all around, for sure.... He is well accomplished in economy, but otherwise? No. Not IMO.

  • Mcdonnell won't run and Barbour is filled with skeletons and racial activity and comments. He shouldn't make primaries.
    I have in my mind who I want to run, thanks very much.
