Here's a decent enough list, though I don't think Cristie has dropped as much as it implies and it includes people who are very unlikely to run.

Probably not a Goat, either.

Exactly my point. I have no idea why he's on the list.  I think the fourth tier is the author just making stuff up, to justify having a category to put Lindsey Graham in.

Er, which one of them is unmarried?  Also, there's the subtle implication that those absurd wildcards and people who aren't even considering running are more likely to actually announce than The Trump.

James Buchanan was a bachelor for life, I think. And one other president was unmarried at the time he held office I think, though he had been married before or something.

Buchanan was also the only President from Pennsylvania and was pretty ****ing terrible. :(


He uh... pretty much caused the Civil War.

Rubio has the best chance of winning the general, I think.

Eh I kinda agree, actually. He's the most normal of the bunch and if he doesn't double down on the crazy he can at least make it to the general election.

But at that point it depends if the others will bow out in time. I really think the fringe is gonna **** this up for the Republicans again. Because Scott Walker is a heartless despot and Jeb Bush has the personality of a brick and the wherewithal of an orange.

That would **** it up for more than just the republicans, if it's Hillary they end up running against.
Not a winner anymore.

Scottish people naturally have an aversion to female leaders after what happened last time, and I'm naturally opposed to american-style political dynasties in general.


Hillary specifically has said and voted some particularly contemptible things in the past, too.
Not a winner anymore.
