The Republicans - 2012

Recommended Posts

Most Republicans identify themselves as being "unsatisfied" with the 2012 field. So I've decided to make a 2012 Scenario with

the candidates that (arguably) should've run. I will not include a single Republican who was running after the Ames, IA

Straw Poll, but Ron Paul will be a candidate in the libertarian party. For all my fellow Republicans: who did YOU want to run

for President? Some obvious people that come to mind are Huckabee, Haley Barbour, Chris Christie, and Mitch Daniels. They are

already included in my game, so I'm curious who else y'all wanted to see. The person did not have to be included in any polling,

or even speculated to run! I just want to know who you wish had run for the GOP Nomination. (I'm accepting candidates who aren't

necessary believable, ie: Senator Olympia Snowe who was never even considered a potential candidate).

Any questions or if you have an idea for a candidate post here or PM me! Thanks!

Also: I'll accept an additional 3 Democrats besides Clinton and Obama!
