The “Perfect” GOP Presidential Candidate for 2012

I recently told one of my fabulous co-Potluck bloggers that I wasn’t looking for the “perfect” 2012 GOP presidential candidate, but I thought it would be fun to imagine what such a creature would like.  Here’s what I came up with (while responding to a post over at Big Government):

We need someone with the mind and manner of Paul Ryan, the fierce patriotism and pride in American exceptionalism of Colonel West (our military certainly deserves a CIC they can be proud of), the principled and no-nonsense leadership of Governor Christie, and the foreign policy knowledge, skills, and experience of Condi Rice.

No problem, right?
