    All these early polls tell us is that Romney has the best name recognition among potential Republican candidates. I'm not sure Romney wants to run again - at least not in the primaries. Perhaps he will do something vain like say, "I won't campaign, but if the people insist on nominating me I won't decline."

    Yeah Romney is a proven winner. Not even the Democrats brought back Al Gore in 2004.

    I can see it now. Romney running for President and gets the nomination. Conservative radio talk show host will talk him up. Then the Republicans lose the election. And the same conservative talk show host that once talk about how great this person is. Will be the first to bitch about how they need a true conservative candidate to run as President.

    Maybe Republicans and conservatives and get together at the table and find a candidate that can win the election. Here's a tip. Why don't you find someone that can win over independent voters. You know that ones that don't live in the south. And don't pick a candidate that's on the far side of the political spectrum.

    Maybe Romney would be a better candidate in 2016. Perhaps he'd be more loose and funny. I haven't seen the recent documentary about him, but supposedly he comes across like a real human being in the film. If he could do that for real, and the Democrats don't have Hillary Clinton as the nominee, who says Romney wouldn't have a good shot?

    As I posted earlier, Nixon not only lost the Presidency once, (1960) but lost the CA governors race two years later. Never count anyone out, even though Nixon's famous quote after that state election: "You don't have Nixon to kick around anymore".

    Yes, we did.

    On a distantly related subject, there is a new movie coming out "Meet The Mormons". My understanding is this is not necessarily a flattering portrait, but honest. For the record, I am not LDS, but live in a LDS dominated area. Could be an interesting look-in.

    I hate to say it, but I'd have to go with another Nixon presidency over a Romney march into the dark ages.

    Andrew - the Mitt documentary, I felt, was very well done and it did show a much more lighter, personable side to him. If he can show that side in public, his chances would improve.

    Although I can't imagine a scenario where I'd ever consider voting for Mitt Romney, he was the least objectionable of all the nuts running for the Republican nomination in 2012. I think he took a lot of positions one way or the other over the years to satisfy one group or another, to the point where I don't know where he really stands on most anything (except taxes on the wealthy).

    Otherwise, I suspect he wouldn't be a disaster as president. I wouldn't want him signing bills from a Republican Congress, however. I think I'd be a lot more comfortable with Mitt in the White House than Old Man McCain.
