Democrats and/or liberals: Which Republican should we be rooting for?

    Mr. Lugs is rooting for chaos. He wants Fred to win South Carolina and Rudy to win Florida.

    But to get the Republican nomination, should we root for the most outrageous candidate (Huckster) so that he'd be (ostensibly) highly beatable?

    Or to safeguard against a potential catastrophe, should we root for the "least of all evils?" Rudy perhaps?

    Or should we hope Bloomberg gets in the race?

    I think Rudy may be the evilest of all evils.

    I can't find one to root for .. to lose.

    George Bush, looked like a kid who should be sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on at the debates and still won, so who knows who is "beatable?"

    (If I had to pick one to win, it would be McCain, though. I don't agree with some of his stances and he is chippy, but he seems to have a lot more integrity than most politicians.)

    I'd go for McCain.

    I just hope it's a big clusterfuck and no one can get the required number of delegates. What's better than a fractured party with no candidate to get behind? Plus, it's good political theater.

    Because he's the most electable of all the candidates, actually has policies that make sense to try and turn things around, and would attempt to rein in the divisiveness that has overwhelmed politics in America.

    In addition, it appears he would get at least a fair shake from most of the national media, even more likely favorable coverage, which would certainly help him on the campaign trail.

    Of all the liberal circle jerk threads around here, this one takes the cake.

    And Rush Limbaugh hates him. So he has that going for him.

    GB, McCain has slowly drifted to the right. If you take one of those issues quizzes, it's possible you'll find McCain is your least favored candidate.
