The Republicans do have some well qualified prospects. Bobbie Jindal of Louisiana may be more acceptable to the red states. Jebb Bush is often mentioned. We shall see what happens over the next few years.

The Tea Party seems not to be doing so well with its ever more conservative credentials quest. They get to a point where they have too few voters to win. How will they change? Or will they settle for what they have?

Perhaps the party will adopt a broader platform that will fit better with Chris Christie.

This is the first election in a long time that both candidates were northerners. In recent times usually candidates are from the west or south.
