"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
At this point in the last election cycle, I probably would have picked Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee, but I could also envision plausible paths to the nomination for several other candidates. At this point I can't envision any path to the Republican nomination for anyone except Mitt Romney. Newt Gingrich maybe has an outside shot, but even that is highly unlikely IMO.

I can't. This is important.

Where I depart from you is that I just have this feeling Gingrich is going to take it. Time will tell.
I'm thinking the polls are reflecting the hearts more than the minds of likely GOP voters at this point. When it counts, I think Romney will be the nominee.
Some polls now have Gingrich ahead of Cain...If it becomes evident cain cant win and his supporters go to gingrich, romney loses..
Id say its a tossup between Gingrich and romny
If either or wins..its a LOSS for the teaparty BIG TIME...since the start they laughed off Romny and gingrich and McSames and rinos etc etc...

Unless somebody with moderate leanings such as John Huntsman comes up with big support, both political and financial, Romney will almost certainly be the nominee
