Fix Face-Off: Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and the D.C. Squirrel

Already getting nostalgic for the days when we thought Donald Trump might be running for president in 2012?

If so, take a look at this week’s Fix Faceoff video Q&A in which we surveyed the 2012 political landscape from Trump to Mitch Daniels and back again. (Trump bowed out right the time this chat ended).  

We also broke down who former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabe e’s decision not to run helps, how the GOP candidates will handle Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal and the growing animus between The Fix and the D.C. Squirrel.

The whole chat — as well as selected highlights — are after the jump.

Other highlights from today’s Fix Face-Off:

* Who benefits more from Mike Huckabee’s decision not to run: Tim Pawlenty or Mitch Daniels?

* How many GOP hopefuls will endorse Paul Ryan’s budget proposal?

* What will happen first: a Muslim president or an atheist president?

* Who is more likely to be the Democratic nominee in (gasp) 2016: Martin O’Malley or Mark Warner?

* Who would be a better tag-team partner for The Fix in his showdown with the D.C. Squirrel: Dana Milbank or Gene Weingarten?
