Since we have not heard any debates and only can vote on shear personal preference and previous voting records, who would you vote for in the Primary Election? Why?

No Huckabee I see . . .

I think he has a legit shot.

He hides his moral conservatism as down home charm, but pulls it out when he needs it. That right there puts him in a good position or a primary. McCain and Guliani are both a bit left of center for republicans.

It will be interesting to see how he runs. I don't know much about him and am anxious to hear what he has to say.

There is speculation that Colin Powell's wife has softened her stance on his running after having met with some of the secret service folks.

I vote for him if he runs.

Otherwise, I am undecided.

If I had to vote right this instant, I'd vote for Guiliani. Just because he seems to be the most likely to win amongst the Conservatives right now. But I need to hear some debates first. Who knows, maybe I'll vote Democratic this time. I hope I don't have to, but if the Republican guy is a douche, I'll have no choice.

Colin Powell would be my first choice

I'm hoping whoever does get it that they pick J.C. Watts to be their running mate as VP.

Romney is a good VP choice as well. I just don't know if he is ready for the big job.

I bet Edwards will be leading VP guy on Dem side as well. Bill Richardson would be even better though for Hillary.

About as far to the right side of the spectrum as you can get, I suspect. Paleo ... like in TRex ... Hobbesian philosophy all the way ... "it's a cruel world ... learn to deal with it."

I think paleo means old. So, I suspect paleoconservative is the opposite of the neo-con, or neo-conservative. Goldwater would be the classic example of the paleoconservative.

McCain, IMO, is a snake in the grass.

I would never vote for him. I don't agree with this politics and I don't think he is presidential material.

I would actually vote for Giulliani but nervously. He may not be conservative enough but I do think Giulliani with a good VP candidate like Powell would keep the Republicans in the White House.

My vote goes to:

1) Tom Tancredo (Congressman Colorado); the only real viable "conservative" candidate... those ultra liberal republicans (Guigliano and McCain are no better than Edwards).

2) Dick Cheney's wife (don't know her name) - very slick educated lady, I wish she'd run. She ate up Wolf Blitzer and spit him out on a CNN interview (good stuff if you haven't heard it).

If I were Republican I would vote for Ron Paul. Then again, he is more Libertarian than Republican;)

I could go for Ron Paul and be more excited about him than anybody.

Honestly, there are few that I couldn't probably get behind on the GOP side. The perfect storm would be to have the DEMs offer up somebody that was actually more conservative than the GOP nominee.

I'm a Libertarian but I won't waste my vote on a guy that can't be elected (meaning somebody outside the two major parties). I will always vote for the lesser of the two evils.
