IMHO ... not that anyone cares but it's my thread so I'll say it anyways ...
Dems best choice - Bill Richardson
Republicans best choice - Guiliani with Rand Paul
But I wouldn't vote for anyone of them either.

Iran contra affair, reagan was an awful president.
Reagan and Obama are similar
I have little respect for most of Reagan's policies.
War on Drug policies like mando sentencing.
Bush Sr. as his right hand man served him well for military and international affairs. Reagan was a puppet, being an great speaker does make him a great president.
Let me ask you a question, why do you believe Reagan was great?
One of the best presidents in the last 30 years.
Better than 'Jeb'. Better than 'Christie' Better than 'Clinton'. Better than the current guy sitting in the oval office. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Reagan eh? One of the best presidents in the last 30 years.
1. Gas was 89 cents a gallon.
2. Savings accounts,money markets, and cds actually paid something back.
You really don't know much about Reagan do you?
Under him the national debt went up 147%
Personal bankruptcies went up 600%
He sold weapons to Iran by way of Israel.
Under him the CIA shipped in tons of coc aine to America.
He funded terrorist groups called the Contra.
He waged war on the middle class by attacking the Unions.
People call Obama weak but said nothing when Reagan showed cowardice by fleeing when over 200 Marines were murdered.
America is still paying the price for his bad policies
Anyone that says he was a great president clearly knows nothing about him.
Heard this song, and dance before the only 'good' presidents are those with a D by their names.
1. The president has absolutely nothing to do with the price of gas
Reagan is the reason why many conservatives myself included said to hell with the Republican party because of what he did to it. The GOP used to fear deficits under Reagan the deficits skyrocketed he loved deficits like a junkie loves his next fix.

You mean like what the left did to get in to the white house in 2008 ?
And has been on a drunken spending spree ever since?
(CNN) -- London's The Shard has taken top honors in the annual Skyscraper Award from Hamburg-based building and construction data company Emporis.
The awards, announced annually since 2000, are chosen by an "international jury of architecture experts" who select nominated buildings completed in the last year and are at least 100 meters tall, according to "aesthetic and functional design criteria," an Emporis spokesperson said in a statement.
Was there a point there ? Between the last 2 guys doubling the debt.
Was there a point there as well ?
He did ? HE DID ? So how does that make him any different than Clinton or GW or OBama arming two bit dictators in the middle east and arming drug cartels in Mexico?
On April 17, 1986, the Reagan Administration released a three page report acknowledging that there were some Contra-coc aine connections in 1984 and 1985, arguing that these connections occurred at a time when the rebels were "particularly hard pressed for financial support" because U.S. aid had been cut off. The report admitted that "We have evidence of a limited number of incidents in which known drug traffickers have tried to establish connections with Nicaraguan resistance groups." The report tried to downplay the drug activity, claiming that it took place "without the authorization of resistance leaders."
What Marines were 'murdered' since when ?
Suicide bombers detonated each of the truck bombs. In the attack on the building serving as a barracks for the 1st Battalion 8th Marines (Battalion Landing Team - BLT 1/8), the death toll was 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers, making this incident the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since World War II's Battle of Iwo Jima, the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the first day of the Vietnam War's Tet Offensive, and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II
But hey threw everything including the kitchen sink there at him. Isreal!
The scandal began as an operation to free the seven American hostages being held in Lebanon by a group with Iranian ties connected to the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution. It was planned that Israel would ship weapons to Iran, and then the United States would resupply Israel and receive the Israeli payment. The Iranian recipients promised to do everything in their power to achieve the release of the U.S. hostages. The plan deteriorated into an arms-for-hostages scheme, in which members of the executive branch sold weapons to Iran in exchange for the release of the American hostages.
Anyone trash talking him clearly doesn't.
