GOP mulls 32 candidates for president in 2016--so far

GOP mulls 32 candidates for president in 2016--so far

By PAUL BEDARD | JANUARY 15, 2014 AT 5:25 PM
Washington Examiner

If you thought the 13-candidate clogged 2012 Republican presidential primaries were too crowded and confusing, then you might want to skip the 2016 process -- because the Republican Party is suggesting that 32 might be interested in running.

The Republican National Committee is operating a 2016 Presidential straw poll that lists all 32, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. It's all part of a fundraiser.

The poll asks users to pick their three top choices. No results are available yet. The list:

- Sen. Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire
- Haley Barbour, former Mississippi governor
- John Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations
- Jeb Bush, former Florida governor - is a Bush
– Herman Cain, a radio host
- Ben Carson, author and neurosurgeon
– Chris Christie, New Jersey governor - status under investigation
– Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas - Meh
– Mitch Daniels, former Indiana governor
- Newt Gingrich, former House speaker
- Nikki Haley, South Carolina governor
- Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor
- Bobby Jindal, Louisiana governor - Seriously?
– John Kasich, Ohio governor
- Rep. Peter King, of New York - Seriously?
- Susana Martinez, New Mexico governor - Who?
– Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor X 100000
- Sen. Rand Paul, of Kentucky
- Former Rep. Ron Paul, of Texas
– Tim Pawlenty, former Minnesota governor
– Mike Pence, Indiana governor
– Rick Perry, Texas governor
- Sen. Rob Portman, of Ohio
- Condoleezza Rice, former secretary of state
– Sen. Marco Rubio, of Florida - Meh
– Rep. Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin - Meh
– Brian Sandoval, Nevada governor - Who?
- Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator
– Sen. Tim Scott, of South Carolina - Who?
- Sen. John Thune, of South Dakota - Meh
- Scott Walker, Wisconsin governor - Meh
– Former Rep. Allen West, of Florida

Social Conservative
Starter: Rick Santorum
Backup: Mike Huckabee

The alternative to the frontrunner:
Starter: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker
Backup: Bobby Jindal

If I was to place a bet on any of these guys today, I'd place my money on Walker. He's gives people a little bit of everything.
Of that list, I'd probably go Walker, Bush, Cruz at this point with Jindal and Christie being my top fallbacks.

I pretty well agree with all of this - though I'm not convinced Jeb Bush is going to run, ever. I've seen absolutely zero indications that he's even the slightest bit interested.

Jindal would be a disaster on the level of Sarah Palin. He's cut out for the state level. In a national campaign, he'd die of a thousand papercuts to himself.

Also, Hillary isn't running. She knows that Benghazi will mire her in a national campaign (the commercials would be devastating - not to mention the eventual movie), and another loss would be devastating to the comfortable amount of power she has as an elder statesman within the Democratic ranks. Running for president has way more downside than upside for her at this point.

I think he's fine domestically, where he needs more experience in my opinion is in the foreign policy realm.

You could have easily said that about Bill Clinton back in the day.

Yes, that's where I could see him having crossover appeal. He's got some of that strange Southern-but-not-Southern-aristocracy charm. At least when I've seen him.

I don’t know. She is pretty polarizing. Those that dislike her couldn’t say a nice thing about her if she gave them a wheelbarrow full of Cash. Those that like her wouldn’t complain if that money she just gave away was stolen from them.

I also think it's funny to see people talking about how nuclear Hilary Clinton is in the same thread in which a member of the Bush family is talked about as a candidate for president.

I don't know why that strikes you as funny. Only three guys mentioned Bush in anything short of a dismissive way. One of them was a liberal (cosmo). Another was Hoover (edit: with Taco pretty much agreeing) and I'm not sure where he stands on the viability of Bush or Clinton. And the third was me. While I would personally have no problem voting for Bush, I doubt that he'll even run and I recognize the huge burden his family name would present.

So what's funny about it? On second thought, instead of answering that, I'm more interested in what you think of Clinton's chances.
