I would hate to see Herman Cain wasted as a VP. He is much more qualified than to have him cooling his heels in a do-nothing job. I would much rather see him in a cabinet post or an economic advisor. I want him at the table in a Palin administration.
“I honestly dont believe he can beat Obama”
Why? Because he wasn’t governor for 2 years in a state with the smallest population in the country?
The dirty little secret is: Obama will not be reelected. He is toast, done, stick a fork in him. There is virtually no chance of the GOP blowing it unless they nominate Ron Paul. Michelle Bachmann is right this is our chance. She is wrong that she is that conservative but she is right this is our chance. Sarah will blow Obama away and have the LSM cheering her on because she is the better story.
“AS much as I admire and respect Herman Cain, I honestly dont believe he can beat Obama. I think he would be a much better president, and should he win the nomination, Ill vote for him.”
Agreed. However, he would be a great running mate to Palin if he would accept such a position.
You think that Cain cannot beat Obama, but Sarah can? Please explain why? Cain does not have the high negatives that Sarah has. He is also is, like Sarah, extremely likeable. I have my doubts that Sarah is electable at all which is why I have been searching for another candidate. I think I have found that in Hermann Cain, and I do believe that he can win.
it will never happen
“37% in the FL straw poll is not something Id be laughing at.”
Michele Bachmann won the AMES straw poll six weeks ago. How is she doing as a result.
Romney did not participate at all. Palin wasn’t even on the ballot. I wouldn’t draw too many conclusions from garnering 896 votes in a straw poll in a state of 30+ million.
Once more, a superb post. Thank you!
[I honestly dont believe he can beat Obama

Before quitting. I think Sarah is going to have a hard-time convincing voters to let that go. Although she had legitimate reasons, it is to difficult to explain in a 30 second soundbite, and the media will do their best not to give her the opportunity.
They don’t understand that there are many people who aren’t crazy about Obama but will go out of their way to vote for him just to vote AGAINST Palin.
>>Why not go for Abel instead?
Because Abel isn’t running (much like Palin) and isn’t willing to put any ideas on the table that might fix America (also like Palin).
Cain has done both and isn’t spending his time strategically plotting his political moves to maximize his political chances over the people who are actually in the race. Cain is in there, fighting to put our issues on the agenda. His ideas will still be there even if he has to drop out later. “Mama Teddy Bear” continues to sit on the shelf and look nice.
I used to like Palin, but I’m sick of her stringing you people along. If she gets in the race in October/November, she can earn my trust and my vote because she’s still on my list of candidates that I’d support, but the days of her getting it automatically are long past.
Here it what will never happen Obama will never be a two term President.
Can't be emphasized enough and, at this point, would be the chief reason for Palin waiting until the last possible minute to enter this race. Christie will be no threat if he gets in but finances are definitely still an issue, as the GOP-E will obviously continue to work to shut off her access to big donors. Other than that, she can get in at any time from this point forward. Her call.
Great perspective as usual, BC.
Palin/Cain is the only ticket.
Thanks for the laugh! :)
I personally don’t believe Palin will declare candidacy, but this is a well-written essay. Nicely done.
I really like Michelle Bachmann, but she has been a disappointment in the debates and with some of her statements in recent weeks.
I’ll never ever vote for Romney.
I think Rick Perry is a phony, and he’d blow it in the general election.
Newt - love his debating skills, and he’s generally on message, but he has too much baggage to become president.
Herman Cain - Great guy. I hope they give him some more air time in the next couple of debates. I’ve got my eye on him.
Sarah - Yes, there is still time for her to get in if she wants.
Santorum - Don’t think it will happen for him.
So for now, Go Herman Cain!
I don’t have to explain my reasons why. It’s just my opinion. I do think he’d be great for this country, but, just don’t believe he can win the general. Of course, he doesn’t have a lot of baggage, nor does he have a lot of name recognition. I’ll just leave it at this.
“IMO she is unelectable plus I believe divorce is forthcoming.”
You’ve been reading too much of the National Enquirer and trashy gossip books bud!
Count me in as a Sarah ONLY person. I like Cain but he is not ready to go prime time in the top spot. FL straw poll is not the primary. It will bring down perry a few pegs but when the dust settles Romney/Perry will both be up there but diminished. Sarah has when it takes to come in and mop up. I guess you did not see her campaign her tail off in 2008. If it had not been for McCain holding her back she might have pulled it off.
