I ran onto this and though it isn't the best video it doesn't sound like a bad idea to me. Is it likely? I don't know but the idea is fun.

No one ever runs for Vice President twice (unless they are the incumbent). Its a bad career move.

Palin would completely overshadow Cain

Sarah would never be on a ticket with Cain. Once I wished for a Palin/Allen West ticket — back in the day.

That scumbag John Edwards was angling to be Obama or Hillary's VP.

Will not, and should not, happen. Sarah needs to take a couple years off from seeking office, then win a Senate seat and serve a full term, come back in 2020 or so.

Well I agree entirely with that sentiment she did John McCain. McCain never commanded the kind of crowds Palin did.
I don’t think it would be a problem.

Potentially, that gives us two terms of Cain with his business acumen to fix the financial mess Bam-Bam and his cronies have gotten us into and two terms with Palin, as a next generation “Teddy Roosevelt / Ronald Reagan” President.

VP would be an excellent way to have Sara prove her “executive experience” that so many on the left accuse her of not having.

Cain is history, and never had what it takes to begin with. We'd have gone from one boob in way over his head to another had Cain won.

As pathetic as it is to say, if Palin doesn't run, we're F___ED. Period.

Cain's number are UP as I understand....and Rush had an amazing take on Cain's handling of the "issue".....

he handled it unlike Clintoon...who established the bimbo team and hired big time hacks to investigate, harass, and attack the bimbos....

we didn't like that in Clintoon and we wouldn't want it in Cain....

Yeah, leading in the polls is history.

A case could be made that Huntsman, Paul, Bachman, Santorum, and Perry are history. None of them have even ten percent.

Two with limited DC experience? Rubio is too new and said he isn’t running. He needs more time. Cain needs someone with a ton of knowledge of DC - i.e Gingrich.

DC experience has gotten us to where we currently are. Perhaps it is time to think differently.

Kegger: DC experience has gotten us to where we currently are. Perhaps it is time to think differently

Kegger, I'm in agreement with you. Gingrich has zero executive experience and his record as Speaker of the House is not exactly a resume enhancer. While the contract with America was acted upon, that limited success was due more to influx of the new Rep. House members achieving majority in the House. As a House mgr Newt was avg at best. Sadly Newt's knowledge of history bogged him down. He knew what had been done but not how past effective speakers operated. He should have spent more time in studying Speaker Reed, one of the most powerful speakers who bent both sides of the House to his will, largely because of Reed's knowledge of procedures and the strength of his convictions and will. (Well worth the google effort to learn about him).

Newt was so enamoured of the trappings of his office, that Clinton and the media out foxed him every step of the way.

Bright guys with ideas are a dime a dozen, guys that have The ability to see the important idea through to effective completion are rarer. Newt talks a great game and sounds grand compared to the rest of the field, but when the hard work comes he falls flat on follow through because he gets another bright shining ooh ooh oo idea. It's a character flaw which his private life brings clearly displays. Do we really need another first lady with a magpie's delight in expensive jewelry or is other other half of the presidency?

We should be looking for a solid conservative VP candidate who could succeed as a Presidential one in turn. Sadly the current field is lacking a current one much less a future one.

Since it’s early, here’s a link to Thomas Brackett Reedm

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Brackett_Reed

It’s a superficial piece, a recent biography provides more insight. With only one cup of java the name of the author and title escape me.

I can’t read people’s motives, but I’ll go on record strongly supporting this idea.

Guv Palin declined to run for President in 2012.

Like it or not, that’s a fact. The unknown to those of us not privy to the reasons for that decision is ... the reasons for that decision.

There is absolutely no question, Palin was subjected to one of the most evil, partisan, mean-spirited leftist mudslinging conspiracies ever seen. And leftists are as a matter of course, nasty to begin with.

I’m guessing Palin didn’t want that to continue. I’m also guessing that unlike most politicians, Palin is not motivated by a yearning for power - and that raises an interesting possibility:

Perhaps her ego isn’t on the line as far as accepting the supporting role in an administration.

I’ve seen hundreds of posts on this board, stating as if fact, that Palin would not accept anything less than top of a ticket.

Perhaps that’s based on faulty assumptions. Perhaps VP would be exactly what Palin would be interested in.

It would keep her from being the focus of the left’s slime machine, while moving her into position as our next, very formidable person for that job after Cain completes his administration.

I’m biased, but I’m not ready to dismiss this possibility out of hand.

It would fire up the tea party movement, like nothing else could.

Hire the person best suited to the job period.

I see all these candidates just as if they were standing in line with a resume in hand all working to get one job.

Do I hire the guy with the best looking wife?

Do I hire the guy who is known to be a millionaire only for a truck driving position?

Do I hire the woman with an honest gung ho attitude, has all the answers, is a survivor because she is adaptable.

Or do I add some color to my workforce in the hope that it will gain more black customers?

its a shame they don’t have a two week on/off for POTUS, just elect two of the best, one works a shift and then changes out with his/her shift partner.
