Poll question: Which Republican was/will be a more of a challenge: Dole vs. Clinton or Mittens vs. Obama?
Mittens is probably the most formidable of the GOP candidates, but he seems to lack the gravitas and even charisma of Bob Dole.

As David Letterman said to Mitt, ''You look like the guy who fired me once.''

The best thing you could say about him is he exudes that Gary Cole in OFFICE SPACE charisma.

Which Republican was or is the bigger challenge to a sitting Democratic president?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

7. This is a hard one but I gotta go with Dole because he didn't have the baggage Mittens does.
Romneycare will be an abitross around his neck. It might stop him from getting the nod. Right now I think George Patacki is probably the bigger threat to Obama if he runs.

8. Neither. It's going to be Pawlenty vs Obama. Obama killed Romney's chances when he co-opted
Romney's medical "reform".
