    Obama couldn't argue with Ron Paul at all and it would be hard for him to speak against Santorum or Romney, but he's choose one of them. I'd probably say Santorum.

    I don't agree totally with Ron Paul's views, but I do get the impression that he always believes what eh says, rather than constructs his beliefs around opinion polls and party lines. As such he would likely be quite difficult to debate. I imagine that Obama will be preparing to debate Romney though, as he seems like the likely winner.

    I'd say the preference would likely be:

    1)  Santorum
    2)  Paul
    3)  Romney

    The logic is that Santorum and Paul would both leave lots of opportunity for Mr. Obama to play to swing voters--the 'middle'--since that's where elections are won, in general.

    With Romney, I'm thinking that he'd probably hammer hard on the issue of consistency and credibility.  He wouldn't be likely actually to use the term "flip-flopper," but the essence would be more or less the same:  that Mr. Romney is more political opportunist than principled leader, and that an elector could not be sure what a pro-Romney vote would actually mean.  (Ron Paul is the exact opposite in this regard, as others have noted--he appears to be unusually consistent.)

    I think he would rather debate Mitt Romney because of all the flip flopping he does.

    I would like to ask why Ron Paul would want to shut down the federal government who pays him so dearly. So to answer your question out of the choices you provided Ron Paul but I would really like to debate Obama.
