    The ones that really think that they have a real shot of becomming President are going to wait until 2016 when their chances will improve.

    Mitch has already pointed out that he's pretty sure he can beat Obama.

    The bankers want their own dogs running the government they bought and paid for.
    Turns out Cain is an insider after all.

    Rasmussen....a conservative pollster....disagrees with your assessment.

    That Daniels could beat Obama? Daniels isn't even running yet, and certainly hasn't launched a campaign - but when he does there seems to be pretty strong indications that he'll come out of the gate with quite strong backing money wise and several big-name endorsements. I'm not worried about the polling yet.

    I really like this last bit:

    ...Daniels’s fundraising figures attest to his strong connections with major party donors—and their interest in underwriting a future presidential campaign. If Daniels can raise more than $2 million without trying, it's intriguing to consider how much he could bring in if he breaks a sweat.
    hehehehe... get ready, Mitt. The Blade is coming

    Introducing Herman Cain - Robert Costa - National Review Online

    As his national profile increased, Cain took on a leadership role at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, becoming chairman in 1995. “Spending time at the Federal Reserve was a good learning opportunity for me,” he reflects. “It helped me to understand economic philosophies and polices that I had not previously known about.” For one, he saw up close how monetary policy influences the economy, from inflation to unemployment rates.
    As Cain campaigns, he does not run away from his Federal Reserve experience, even as Ron Paul and others call for the institution to be eliminated. Cain would rather mend it than end it, using more congressional oversight. This is not always a crowd-pleasing message on the Des Moines–Manchester circuit. Still, as he makes this case, Cain takes care to do it with tea-party bravado, championing a strong dollar, praising the gold standard, and applauding Paul for his discerning criticism.
