66. Two Words- Brokered Convention
The Ruthug nominee will be either Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, David Patraeus, John Thune, or Bob McDonnell (as for VP it could be anyone of them or Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Jon Kyl, Rob Portman, Newt, or Romney.

My gut sickeningly says Jeb with McDonnell or Portman as VP, next most likely would be Christie w/ Ryan or Thune, the wild card would be Patraeus with Rubio as VP (that would be a huge gamble as Patraeus is the ultimate war monger candidate and Rubio is sooo corrupt, but that ticket also has the largest upside except for possibly a Bush/Patraeus pairing.

It is wide open, and I am just throwing shite against the wall.

The key to why it will be brokered is the new rule in GOP primaries where winner doesn't take all in many states, so no candidate will have enough votes by the convention:
