Hypothetcally, if it came down to Cain or Palin in the primary, which one would you vote for?
Gov. Sarah Palin, and she’s have a $2 million dollar check from my fundraising in her hand.
Palin, and I hope she picks Cain as her running mate.
I could go with either, but if I have to choose, it would be Palin.
All in for Palin and not looking back ...
If we are down to those two at the end, it doesn’t matter. I think they would become one ticket on their own. And it would be Country First, they would not care who is on the top of the ticket.
Palin for me but I do like Herman Cain
Every thread needs at least one grumpy old man.
Cain. Honestly we HAVE to win this one. I believe 40% of this country is brainwashed to hate Palin. It will be tougher for the media machine to drum up real hate against Cain.
The left can’t drum up hate against Cain. Their candidate’s only redeeming feature (In their eyes) is a quality our candidate has in spades.....Damn that is almost tagline worthy. Too bad I really like mine.
Too early to tell. If Cain and Palin are both still in the running by the time the Kansas primary rolls around next year, I’ll have to look at how they’re doing on the campaign trail and what polling data looks like in the match-up with Obama.
Either would be acceptable ideologically.
All things being equal, I’d go with Palin. After all, FReepers with long and detailed memories will recall I advocated Palin as a solid choice for McCain to pick as running-mate before he picked her.
Governor Sarah Palin according to the Gallup polls now has a 71% approval rating with republicans AND republican leaning indys. Her approval is higher than any other GOP potential candidate. If all these people that constantly say I love Sarah but I dont think she can win would get behind her instead of saying I want to go with who I think will be the WINNER instead of what is right for this country...if they would get behind her than you would see a totally different campaign. I guarantee Mr. Obama would be a one term president.
Her record in Alaska of working with everyone without compromising her conservative principles is what got her an 85% approval rating in her first year. She took on and beat an incumbent governor even though she was told it was a losing strategy. She beat him by 31.5%...51,443 votes to 19,412!!! Gov. Sarah Palin has what it takes to beat Mr. Obama. Shes the ONLY one that does!!!
Unfortunately, I do not envision the Palin/Cain on the same ticket in any order. There would be enormous pressure on the both of them to pick a Washington insider considering both are outside the establishment. For this reason, Lt. Col. West seems a better fit as a running mate for both.
He has experience inside the beltway (especially foreign policy), but hasn’t been in DC long enough to get labeled an “insider”. Also close to that VP list, I would have Jim Demint, John Kasich, maybe (just maybe), Scott Walker.
We’ll have to wait and see how they campaign.
How much is known about Cain’s past?
Palin has been examined with a microscope...
We’ll see how Cain does under the spot light.
If the election were held today, I’d vote Palin.
Did I miss Sarah’s announcement?
That being said, I like a Palin / Cain ticket. If Congressman West was willing, make it a Palin / West Ticket.
Cain can take over for Turbo Tax Timmy as the Treasury Secretary in the Palin Administration.
Not so far.
But it appears you did miss the word "hypothetically" (albeit mistyped) in my question.
Cain/Palin———then just have to XXX out the Mc on yard signs and bumper stickers
I’ll be voting for Sarah Palin, Liberty, our Constitution and American Exceptionalism, Justice and a hundred other things.
I like Cain. At this point, I believe Cain is a good man and I’m glad he entered the race.
However, I would crawl over broken glass to cast my vote for Palin......
I like the Godfather. The gov is still my first choice.
great points. i agree.
people forget what an incredible effect she had on the McCain campaign. the incredible record breaking crowds that came to see HER.
true, the left hates her. but they won’t vote for Cain anyway. and the much higher turnout of the base she would get, will more than make up for it.
Cain is good, and i’d be honored to vote for him. but, he’s too nice, as the recent setup question about “right of return” shows. The only way they ever did that to Sarah, was by heavily editing 2 days of interviews (which is why the Couric video was so choppy...)
...and Obama will hate her, and it will show in the debates... she will get under his skin, and make him explode, for the whole world to see...
(and for VP, there is NO better man in the country, than Colonel West.)
oops. I did not notice. FReeregards.
I have no clue which I’d vote for, but I have to say, it’d be a dream come true if this very scenario were to play out. It’d certainly be far better than ending up with two RINO’s at the end.
I've seen that before. C4P?
Seems you did.
I probably won’t get a chance to say. My primary isn’t until May....usually its all decided by then unfortunately.
So, my best hope is that its’ one or the other and not Pawlenty, Newt or Romney!
Personal pick = Palin.
She’s the best from a conservative perspective but the leftist media has managed to poison her in the minds of the general populace.
My heart belongs to Palin.
I don’t think that Cain’s first public office will be as President of the United States.
Either one is better than the incompetent moron now in the ‘People’s House’, or both on the ticket.
I want the 95% of traditionally black Democratic voters to be forced to vote for a quasi-black man who has cost them jobs versus a for real black man that has created jobs.
Force them to declare with their vote they support a continuation of progressive, socialist, Marxist broken promises.
I’m not a member of C4P.
