He has a huge advantage, but has not been vetted in a primary setting. If it comes to that it's not going to be pretty. The same goes for Christie as well.
In fact, the only guys who I think would have a free run, meaning they have been throughly vetted by Republican voters are Paul, who will be associated with his father, and Santorum, who went through the ringer this time around.
I just hope all the talk of T-Paw and Rick Perry goes away. neither will ever be President of the United States or the Republican nominee. I have sat down and had private discussions with both. I like them as people, but they fail as candidates.
Great point about the primaries. Who knows, but I strongly believe that in 2016 you will not see another round of those chaotic debates. The field may dictate this of course, but one thing Reagan did have right was the golden rule, thou shall not speak ill of another republican. If they don't return to that demeanor they will never return to power again.
