My Gut Tells Me Cain-Palin Ticket Will Happen

I have been a strong Palin supporter from the very beginning. Starting with her selection as John McCain's running mate in 2008 all the way to the current announcement, I have invested time (nearly 3 1/2 years) in her like no other I've ever done. And I feel she is a person of character a was worth it.

Over the recent months different people have moved into my "fall back" category. And it seems (if he can hold up) that Herman Cain is my guy. He's no Sarah Palin mind you but despite a couple of gaffes here and there he seems reasonably solid.

Having said all that, I find it curious that about a week or so (maybe a little more) after his awesome showing in the Fl straw poll and Sarah calling herself his biggest fan, she should make this announcement.

The timing just seem to indicate that she too had finally found "her guy". Someone that is the closest to her she's gonna get w/o running herself. And indeed Cain gives Palin-like speeches, is outside of gov't and speaks his mind off the cuff much like Palin does. They seem to be kindred spirits, so-to-speak.

I have no way of knowing this factually, no inside scoop, nothing but I just have a hunch that these two will start to coordinate at Tea Parties together soon. Chisties out, Romney's the Establishment guy, Perry is weakened, Bachmann has become persona non grata. But wouldn't it be something to see these two (Cain & Palin) out on the stump together? They will try it and see how the primary/general voters react and my gut is the public will love'em.

Folks mark my words---I know it's way early but if Cain can pull off an upset got a feeling it'll be because his supporters and Palin's supporters will combine to put him over the top and then we'll see her on the ticket. My gut tells me this time next year we'll be supporting a Cain-Palin ticket (a much better one w/o the Mc).

Palin supporters would always support Cain anyway.

Politically she would bring nothing to that ticket. Adding Rubio OTOH would make a lot of sense, because frankly as we all remember...We NEED to win FL.

It would be a GREAT ticket if only the RINO wing would allow it. I suspect Cain might be forced to choose Mutt or Prick in order to get the necessary financing, but I could be wrong.

Well at least it could save some money on bumper stickers and campaign signs. We could just cross out the Mc on the old ones. Depending on how many are still left we could save thousands of dollars nationally.

Not gonna happen, count on it. Sarah knows she can do more from the outside rather than be a lightning rod constantly drawing fire from the fawning press looking for revenge for Obama’s (and progressives) crushing defeat. It takes a team to get things done and Sarah is a great player in a different role and she knows it. Look what they did to her even considering a run for office, she would be under the microscope daily and nothing would get done.

“I don’t think she will revisit the VP thing.”


In that case, there are Plans B & C:

Cain/Rubio 2012

Cain/Gingrich 2012

I’m worried about a romney/Cain ticket that the slimy pundits are hankering for. I hope Sarah can convince Cain to stay away from mandate man. She does have star power and could attract more donors.

Your gut is wrong. Palin is not running and will never, ever be chosen as a VP running mate again. No nominee is going to want her celebrity and the circus of her personal life overshadowing him or her. Palin had her shot at VP and wouldn’t want play second fiddle again anyway.

You people gotta let the Palin stuff go. It’s done. There is no inside scoop or secret plan. Palin is not a candidate and will not be on the ticket. She will endorse whoever wins the GOP nomination even if that person is Romney.

Your gut is an idiot. Palin has already gone on record as saying that she won't do the VP thing again.

Face the truth: she put herself "out of play", and probably permanently, by deciding not to run. Personally, I think it was the wrong decision*, on many levels, but it wasn't my decision to make.

*With the caveat that I wholly support the decision if she's pregnant again -- a Presidential campaign would be unhealthy for mother and child in that case.

Rubio has said he won’t run as VP.

And if he did I would not vote for that ticket unless we had a specific court ruling that Rubio is a natural born US citizen.

I would never vote for Romney unless we had a specific court ruling that he was NBC also.

I would love a Cain-Palin ticket. I could fight HARD for that team.

It would be something, but Cain would be a fool to do it. Her poll negatives are astonishing and the media’s obsession with her would suck all of the oxygen away from his policy initiatives.

As a Presidential candidate she may have been viable because she could have pwnd a few people in debates and spent the next 4-6 months reminding independents how smart she really is. As a VP nominee she will be a sideshow.

Those of us who love Sarah have to get real and deal with the fact that she will not be running and that’s probably best for her and the country right now. We need to pick other conservatives and back them to the hilt.

For what’s it worth, I heard Ann Coulter on Hannity last night saying, Romney/Rubio or Romney/Cain. EGAD!!!!

Man, that would just be Déjà vu all over again. I couldn’t stand McCain in 2008, and still voted for him, ONLY BECAUSE PALIN was on the ticket.

If we let them do it we deserve the sots in office we’re gonna get from here on out. And the crimes in office that we’ve got now that the watchdogs for the rule of law are all silenced.

If we let them get away with this, it is the end for America. Mark my words.

“I am not going to be the VP nominee”
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/10/i-am-not-going-to-be-the-vp-nominee/

Sen.Rubio has publicly spoken: he will not accept the VP nomination.

There are groups around the nation putting together ballot initiatives for the Nov.2012 election that would provide state constitutions with an amendment defining natural born citizen. It would require all persons running for President or Vice President to prove eligibility: that they were born in the USA of USA citizen parents.

The definition of natural born citizen is in the summation to Minor v. Happersett, 1874.

I don’t mean to start an argument (I like Perry to some extent as well) but I wanted to point out that Rush said GWB was a conservative and probably Inhofe and Levin did, too.

Of course, there’s nobody in the race who wouldn’t be a vast improvement over Zero.

Even if he decides not to run, we need to support a veep with some more moderate credentials from swing states. If not Florida, then look to Ohio.

I'm with you on that.

A Cain/Rubio ticket is one I could enthusiastically support.

I could support Cain/Palin as well, but Rubio is definitely better strategy.

I don’t know. Cain didn’t feel comfortable with Perry, but is excited to endorse Romney. And you think he would be comfortable with the anti-Romney? I don’t see it. I’d vote for it, but I don’t see it.

Sarah was my first choice. But now I’m liking the idea of a Cain-West ticket.

Liberals would absolutely freak out because they couldn’t play the race card. Once and for all it would shatter their claim that the GOP and the Tea Party is a bunch of racists.

Obama has already lost the white vote and a Cain-West ticket would win at least 35% of the black vote and maybe more!

Cain’s biggest weakness is his lack of foreign experience. And that happens to be a forte for Allen West.

Cain will be castigated for his lack of political experience, so I think someone with a long political resume, maybe from the Midwest or PA. Perhaps Pawlenty or maybe Santorum.

I’d rather see Cain team up with Gingrich. I think Newt would bring more to the ticket than Romney or Perry. If Cain teams up with either of them then he winds up with a huge ick factor.
