    Who among those at the debates now do you really believe will take the nomination if not Romney?

    Herman Cain. He doesn't have a political history that betrays what he claims to believe. A handful of accusers conveniently coming out now that Cain is more viable doesn't mean squat because they are are seen as politically motivated and baseless .Besides that the allegations were released to early. People and their outrage have a short attention span. Mitt Romney on the other hand is blatantly a liberal masquerading as a conservative, he is the republican version of John Kerry. His political record contradicts the hell out of what he is claiming to believe today. So anything he has said since 07 has to be seen as something he said because he thinks it will help make him become president. This is why he isn't running as Massachusetts liberal Romney, he knows it won't get him elected.

    "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"

    Clinton may have been the frontrunner, but she had a serious challenger in Barack Obama, as well as several other respectable fallback candidates who had been on the national political scene for a long time (John Edwards, Bill Richardson, Joe Biden). Romney may not be any better of a candidate than Hillary Clinton was (and to be fair, she was a pretty damn good candidate)...but Romney has the advantage of running against a field of nobodies and unelectables, whereas Hillary Clinton did not. The Romney camp must be delighted at his good luck to have serious contenders like Mike Huckabee and Chris Christie choosing to sit this one out.

    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 do agree with you that people have a short attention span. Unless a woman comes forth with a Herman Cain, Jr this will most likely be a speck in the rear view mirror. I do not believe these are baseless accusations but the timing is yes, political. Cain seems to have this propensity for misspeaks and there are probably more speed bumps in his lane.
    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.

    Obama was as much a nobody at that time as any one in the republican field now. His one big thing was delivering a speak at the 2004 democratic convention. Outside of that, he was just a junior senator.

    Re: 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...

    Be very careful with those polls. Undecided is the leading candidate in many of them. While I will be watching and talking about the polls, at length and in depth, the reality right now is until the first couple votes happen, I am in the dark as to how it will go.

    Re: Romney will be the nominee

    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
