If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the

He should be distant enough now from the Conservative movement that his running cannot be associated with the entire Conservative movement. If a popular conservative candidate runs for president and is seen as representative of the whole movement he risks sinking the whole movement.
He should be articulate enough to win debates. Even if the presidency is lost sometimes the victory is in winning people to the cause, and then watching the failures of the Democrats unfold.
He should be relatively free from controversy or other scandals that will easily end his campaign like done to Romney or McCain etc.
He should have principles enough to have been consistent his entire public life, and should have had a public life for at least the last 30-40 years.
As I write this I'm thinking of someone like Mark Levin.
