Syndicated columnist William Kristol, writing in weeklystandard.com, opines that the early good polling of dark horse Donald Trump means that the GOP is wide open to something new and dynamic. After “half-jokingly” putting forth the notion of a 2012 ticket of budget guru Rep. Paul Ryan and the attractive freshman senator from Florida Marco Rubio, Kristol recounts a swell of surprising approval from readers of the Weekly Standard.

kristol, trump, ryan, RubioSome examples:

• I love the two, couldn’t be any better or smarter pair for 2012. They have my vote! I could finally sleep at night with those two running the country. Pray they team up and run in 2012.

• Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio are the future of not only the Republican party, but also America. Get rid of the old hacks, it’s time for these dynamic American leaders. If they won’t run, add Chris Christie to the mix. .  .  .

• I am a registered Democrat. .  .  . I agree with you on Ryan-Rubio, and would be willing to work for them in Joe Biden’s home state of DE. I don’t consider myself a Tea Party guy, although I agree with most of what they stand for. .  .  . Sign me up.

• Tell Ryan we’ll let his kids roller-skate in the W.H. .  .  . ANYTHING! .  .  . Seriously, I understand they lack experience in some areas. However, when it comes to fiscal reality Paul Ryan IS the smartest man in the room. And he knows a whole lot about American political history .  .  . love the guy.

Kristol sums it up saying, “All of this suggests a willingness to consider more and hitherto unexpected options for the GOP nominee.”
