    This is how I feel. I really have no idea what's going to happen. There's a new GOP frunt runner every week and none of the candidates seem particularly confident or stable in themselves and their positions yet (at least to me).

    I think it would be unwise to argue that anyone is "for real" yet.

    Christie is out, it is official. Palin at this point is very unlikely to run. I still have a hard time seeing any one but Romney win the nomination, but at this point, nothing would surprise me. About the only thing we can say for sure is Paul Huntsman and Santorum won't win.

    I picked: No, He's just the GOP's flavor of the week

    I don't think people want a former CEO as President, that would include Romney as well.

    That being said, I answered other mainly because no matter if he gets the nod or not he wil never be president. He is a shock jock and to much of what moderates and independents don't want. He will consist too much of blind attacks, bias empty rhetoric and super partisanship than substance to be president. He and many like him on the left and right are part of the problem with politics and not part of the solution.

    Serious to make noise? Maybe
    Serious for president? nope
    I only asked if he could win the nomination. I think he would be at a serious disadvantage against Obama for president.

    Stewart did a pretty good bit on the Christie Palin speculation thing. Seriously...how many times does the guy have to say NO? And of course...if he DOES change course now...he would be eviscerated...and rightfully so. Palin...geez...the more she talks I just really cant see how ANYONE can take her seriously. She should adopt a strippergram persona...I mean...that might over-ride the encessant rambling and yammering.

    I know but I just think the rest is important.
    If he is real or nor for nomination doesnt really matter much if he cant win, thats all.

    Re: Herman Cain: For real or not

    Voted other-unsure. I'm beginning to wonder if the neo-cons are getting FoxNews and the pundit to push a lot of Tea Party candidates into the limelight so their vote will be fragment enough to make Romney the nominee.

    Re: Herman Cain: For real or not

    Via Nate Silver: "Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Trump, Giuliani, Romney, Palin, Gingrich, Huckabee and Christie have all led at least 1 national poll this year."

    Next week it'll probably be someone else.

    I really hope the GOP doesn't nominate a nobody after going so hard against Obama for his inexperience (rightfully so, imo). But can you blame them? They have nobody. The field is a joke. I really hope someone viable realizes this and jumps into the field, but they're running out of time; there's only a few weeks before the first filing deadlines.

    It's also kind of weird/disappointing that Huntsman seems to have taken a "I'm too damn sane for these right-wing crazies" campaign strategy. He's way more fiscally conservative than conservatives or misguidedly-adoring liberals give him credit for, yet torpedoed himself and blew what might have been a good chance at the nomination. I don't get it. Maybe he really is more moderate than his record would suggest?

    He is the only one I thought that had a chance to actually compete if he got the chance but that seems unlikely.

    I have no clue why parties get so crazy when things dont go there way and they just want to rally and scream and attack with no substance. It wont work.

    Its what happened to Kerry VS Bush, the whole campaign was "bush sucks", while I thought that was true and so did many americans that alone doesnt win elections. WHy? because ANYBODY can do it.

    If people want Obama out I know one thing is for sure, who ever they get to run against him better have more to run on then "Obama sucks"

    That's the real problem with Mitt Romney. Nobody really wants him to be president, they would just want him to be president more than Obama.
    Given his high chances of being nominated, I can see why so many conservatives are turning to anyone they can find with something - anything - to bring to the table, other than "not Obama".
