    With so many Israel-firsters to choose from, and the way they are elevated to the top of the list,
    it's not hard to figure out the priority here.

    Polling Republicans only on this is a mistake. They're going to vote for Trump anyway. Who do independent voters like? From what I've seen it's not Ron Desantis.

    You can count on Trump picking someone who is diametrically opposed to his alleged populist beliefs.

    Whatever those beliefs are at this very moment.

    A perfect 4D Trump move would be:

    John Huntsman Jr

    Mormon/Zionist in the Glenn Beck tradition
    Globalist
    Russia hater
    China hater by day, China collaborator at night
    Billionaire
    Never-Trumper

    He would be perfect!

    An easy way to narrow this list down to what's actually possible is to remove everyone who has ever said anything bad about Trump.

    DeSantis won't do it. Things are going too well for him in Florida to get dragged down with Trump. Haley is on the outs with Trump.

    I disagree.

    Trump is a feckless narcissist who seems to value present sycophancy over prior disparagement, especially when doing so can be exploited to present himself in a flattering light - such as by presenting himself as a magnanimous "uniter" who doesn't hold grudges. He certainly doesn't have any principles upon which to base such decisions, so all bets are off, and anyone who bends the knee and kisses his ass enough (whether in good faith or not) is in the running.

    Making DeSantis your running mate would be stupid since you’d have to find a replacement governor. Good luck finding a replacement GOP voters in Florida would accept.

    I nominate Swordsmyth. He’s the perfect choice. Plus, it gets him out of OUR hair.

    Unfortunately, I think you are right. He places more value on loyalty than anything else. To me, one of his biggest negatives is that it doesn’t appear to me anyway that he understands constitutional principles at all. He needs Rand close by. I was hoping in the last 4 years, he could have been reached to educate him,when he had off time off from being high-stepped.

    It is sad that our country is where it is, but it is.

    I think that Carson is a better person than I had originally estimated.

    With that said, I think his tenure at HHS could be characterized as "low energy" in the Trump definition of the word.

    Agreed. That is why I picked him from the list.

    Just exactly so.

    And the irony of it is that Trump, who operates with no principles, and though it's not a high bar, still manages to be better than Biden (or rather, Biden's handlers), who operate with bad principles.

    Having no principles, Trump is apt to occasionally say or (try to) do the right thing (or at least the not-as-bad thing), even if only accidentally. Nothing done by the progressive leftists (or their cynical and opportunistic would-be manipulators, like Biden, Pelosi, et al.) is done by accident.

    Yes, it was. (He's the guy who buried the gold.)

    None that Trump would consider.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.
