    What use was it to him when he lost the other 39 states in the country? The fact is that Mitt Romney is a mormon and for the most part the other Republicans running in 2012 would have to be so horrible that there would be no other viable choice. Mitt Romney isn't a blue collar worker. He's the son of a rich man. He isn't an Evangelical. He's a mormon. He's not from the military. These are all traits that the Republican base looks for. He has none of them. So what does Mitt have? His church and a few liberals in the East Coast and Midwest.

    And the Evangelical Religious Right is only one faction of the Republican Party. It is not even the only religious faction- Mormons are a good example of another one. Honestly, if they can nominate John McCain, who called Pat Robertson an agent of hate and earned constant criticism from Limbargh, they can nominate a Mormon.

    And yet I doubt Colin Powell could get the nomination either. Which is weird, since I could not see him losing a general election.

    Is this in your opinion a backlash to Obama's seemingly failure after failure, or do you think it has more to do with the reflection that this country is indeed. Center-right?

    What say you.
    We'll see come election time; that's all that matters. I don't see how people can get mad at Obama though because his policies are as radical as they were when he first said them in his campaign; you can't get mad at the man if you voted for him and he's doing what he said he would do...

    The Evangelical's are a powerful arm of the party. I cannot see them accepting a Mormon. He will almost certainly run in 2012, so we will find out then.

    Probably not, but he had a fighting chance- and I base that statement on the fact that the head of the RNC is now black- until his endorsement of Obama.

    It's mostly because Colin Powell isn't made for politics. He's a soldier.

    I just hope he isn't the only choice we've got. I'm not evangelical but I still would only vote for him in the primaries if he's the lesser of all evils- he changes his positions too much for my liking. I'd still take him over Obama though.

    Which is probably the best part about him. I think we could use a few presidents who where not politicians.
