    Here is, in my estimation, a pretty comprehensive blog post detailing the possibilities.

    Newt Gingrich: Serious candidate or sideshow? - The Fix - The Washington Post

    Thanks for the article BD, but I don't think that the WaPo has an objective eye on this campaign. And to take their word for anything I think would be a mistake.

    If Cain wins the GOP nod, then the race card is out of it, other than the racist demo's that will pillore him with shouts of 'oreo', and 'uncle tom' at every chance.

    There is no chance in hell that Cain gets the nod....Zero. I would be surprized if he even finishes #5.

    Clearing the way for Herman Cain to be President in January of 2013. I'm cool with that. I would love to see an ABC in the White House and watch all the Libbos's heads explode, because they couldn't cry, "racist", at every opportunity.

    The GOP is way too racist to ever nominate a black man (The closest chance would have been Powell). There is zero chance Cain will even finish in the top 5. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    He'll need to go back to his motivational-speaker quality if he wants to win. When he's "frank" he almost comes off like a d*ck. I don't think that will serve him well during the campaign cycle.
    I think he knows he's **** out of luck, so there's no need in putting on the show, anymore.

    He's unacceptable to those folks, because he's a Conservative. He's a smart Conservative and they're skeered ****less of him, the same way they're afraid of Palin.

    He's smart, there's no doubt about it. I just don't like him because he's an ass.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I'm still digging.

    Newt Gingrich News - The New York Times

    In running as a candidate, he will have to grapple with aspects of his life and career that could give pause to elements of the Republican primary electorate, including a lack of a well-established association with religious conservatives and attendant questions about his two divorces.

    But as he travels the country, he strikes two related notes: that the nation faces not just a fiscal crisis but also a loss of its moral foundation, and that his conversion to Catholicism two years ago is part of an evolution that has given him a deeper appreciation for the role of faith in public life.

    No rhetoric. I want facts.
