They'll probably wind up going with Marc Rubio, the newly elected (and popular) senator from Florida. I can see it now: "Just like Obama, folks! Rubio came out of nowhere BUT HE'S A CONSERVATIVE AND HE'S WHITE!"
He's also Hispanic -- a growing and important demographic. And, like Romney, he seems to have an IQ higher than your average half-eaten box of Milk Duds.
A lot can happen in the 21 months between now and the election. We just can't afford to sit around twiddling our thumbs. Barack Obama may not be a Progressive's dream, but like it or not, he's the man many of us have invested our hopes in -- and a third party uprising is out of the question. Don't even go there. The GOP is beyond redemption. If that party is ever again given control of the legislative and the executive branch of our government, you can kiss this country goodbye.
AFTERTHOUGHT: If the people over at Spell Check had their way, the president's name would be, "Bareback Alabama." Honestly.
