I haven't asked this one for a while so I suppose it's OK to recycle it. Regarding the nomination in 2016: Which candidates do you find unacceptable?

Here's the list I have of those running -- and sticking to those who are relatively serious candidates: Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Mike Pence, Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum and John Kasich.

I think that's it. Sorry if I missed one. Which, if any, would upset you if they were nominated? Why?
