So now that 2012 is over, political parties have to be prepping for 2016, trying to figure out which candidates to run for various offices. I thought up a good team that the Republicans can run in their top ticket for 2016. Here they are:

Presidential Candidate

Vice Presidential Candidate

What do you think of the ticket, is it a good match? This would also be the first time a woman ran as a nominee for president from a major party I think.

Won't matter if Hillary runs.......Hillary Clinton has it wrapped up if she runs.

But if she doesn't, maybe the Republicans have a chance.

No she doesn't. There would be legitimate concerns about her age and health, she'd be associated with Obama (which would turn many off), and many just don't like her/find her to be too robotic of a politician.

oops, it turns out the guy I picked as the Vice Presidential candidate is a Democrat. Oh well, maybe he'll cross party lines over the next 4 years.

Rand Paul for President and Justin Amash for VP.  That is what I would like, but Justin wouldn't ever be picked for VP.  Realistically Rand would pick some boring loser republican like Rubio to keep it safe.

Secretaries of State usually do have higher approval ratings, because they largely don't get embroiled in domestic political debates and because they are seen as representing America's national interests on the world stage.

Rand Paul, lol. Lets keep those Ayn Rand jerk offs out of office is we can. Maybe Huntsman may stand a chance for another round, at least he doesn't reject basic science on the grounds of 'Jebus' like the rest.

Rand Paul has zero chance of ever winning an election, especially against Hillary Clinton.

Rand Paul has only been a senator for alittle more than a year. It is highly unlikely that he will be a major contender in the election.

Ronald Reagan ran at her would-be-age, her health is fine, and she has the intelligence and toughness we need in a president. By the end of the term being associated with Obama will be a plus (which may help god forbid Joe Biden too). Too robotic a politician????? They all seem robotic for the most part.

Marco Rubio might be the only significant candidate I'm familiar with on the Republican side. Chris Christie has had his 15 minutes.

Wasn't he accused of spending 160 thousand dollars on the GOP credit card? If so, he's perfect for the federal government.

He seems like a cool guy to hang out with and have some pasta and pizza. If he gets the nomination he should challenge the Democratic nominee to a cooking throwdown, like Bobby Flay.

A Republican that is '2013' with social issues would never survive a primary. They'd be dead in the water, thank the Evangelicals.

times have changed, she is VERY popular with most Senators and the public at large, and that will probably even increase.

Obviously, she is hugely popular with women.
