<quoted text>Interesting, what baggage? Martinez spoke at the convention. I met her a couple of years ago in St Paul, prior to her becoming Govenor of New Mexico.
For starters, all of her anti-illegal stances, most of which I agree with, would be solidly used against her in an election. She would be branded as racist and anti-hispanic. Then there is her tendency to seem defiant towards the feds because of her attempts to actually enforce federal immigration laws, thereby making them look stupid. Again, I agree with her stance but this is just too easy for opponents in a presidential race. They need to find a somewhat unknown and relatively untouchable candidate. Even then they would need to keep a very tight rein on how the public perception was managed.

I think Brewer has too much political baggage at this point. Not familiar with Martinez.
Brewer would be a step in the wrong direction. It would be too easy to label her as well, with her support of Arizona's controversial immigrant law.

Martinez would be perfect. Also research Governors Mary Fallin, Nicki Haley, Senator Susan Collins, Reps Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Shelley Moore Capito, Kay Granger, Jo Ann Emerson, Marsha Blackburn or Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

I'd say McMorris Rodgers would be a strong pick.

Also Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is Cuban born. Mary Fallin cheated on her husband with her bodyguard. How about Christine Todd Whitman, Olympia Snowe or Kelly Ayotte? Jodi Rell is kind of old.

Either way, the GOP will lose again if they run who the left can label "another elitist old white man". As much as I like Chris Christie or Marco Rubio, if Hillary Clinton is the pick then it can't be either of them. Now if by some fluke its Biden, the GOP could run a drunk monkey and win.

The only hope the GOP has with women in 2016 is if they can find a female candidate whose body is able to reject rape sperm. Vindicate Todd Akin!

I like Martinez, I would have to look into the others mentioned.

Hillary is likely to run away with a victory over any of the mentioned candidates.

The GOP needs platform changes to be competitive again - they need to appeal to more Americans, not just rich angry old white men.

Huh? Are you nuts? Benghazi is just a right wing plot to try to make something out of nothing, I have no idea what any blue dress has to do with Hillary, the Obama administration hasn't failed, and she has little baggage, but DOES have a MUCH higher approval rating than any potential Republican candidate I've seen yet.

You aren't one of those birther nuts that buys into every conspiracy theory out there, are you?

It's only baggage, if you 're a senile teabagger...

In the real world, we re-elected them, because they're doing we'll considering the mess the GOP left behind.

The best thing that happen to the GOP in 2012, is they realized the Paradigm for elections has moved. Perception of the situation versus the reality of the situation is what matters to the voting public. The media either knowingly or not, perpetuated the stories the White House wanted focused on and buried the ones they didn't. By the way, please tell me you don't believe, 5 days after Clinton and supposedly Obama, called this a terrorist attack, Susan Rice's bullshit on 5 national TV broadcasts about some anti-Islamic movie has any bearing in reality?? And No, I believe Mr. Obama was born in the US. I would be interested to see how he financed his tour of college, however!

Why would you want to elect any woman who is as intelligent as Hillary but stays with a husband who is a serial philanderer?

Clinton is 65, so she would be close to 70 next campaign cycle,,, Not sure she would want to take that grind on at 70. You can be assured that will play against her.
