    I really like John Boehner. I don't think he's ever expressed interest in running for higher office, but I wish he would. He'd be a great VP choice in 2012, or even top spot.

    I love Duncan Hunter, that's who I had planned to vote for in the last presidential primary, but by the time Texas got to vote everybody but McCain had already bailed.

    I feel he's a strong conservative. Running for Michigan Gov this year.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I like Mike Pence, and Paul Ryan seems to be up and coming. Eric Kantor from here in Va. bears watching.

    John Boehner has a funeral director/used car dealer aura about him...

    eh...I like Rick Synder better for MI Gov. not a big fan of Hoekstra, he's said some dumb things over the years in the House.

    I'm for Mike Pence. I've actually met the guy and he is what he purports to be (insofar as any politician CAN be, that is).
