    Wyoming doesn't hold primaries and our candidate selection takes place after it has already been settled by the other States. I've represented my county at Wyoming's Democratic convention, but I sincerely doubt that the GOP would allow me the same honor.

    I will be watching him with great interest, however.

    Which primaries, not everyone has them.

    Re: Will you vote for Herman Cain in the primary?

    No. Why?
    1. He supported TARP.
    2. He flip flopped on auditing the Fed, and likely wont confront the problem it poses.
    3. He has never held public office, and has little political experience. Didn't we criticize Obama for that?
    4. His foreign policy is: "I don't know the facts, so I wont tell you."

    He is one of the better ones (most are RINOs) but I would vote for Ron Paul. Paul has consistency with his free market beliefs, and the record to prove it. Plus, polls show he has a greater chance of beating Obama. Who knows what Cain will actually do when given power. Yes, he is a successful business man. But that does not mean he will govern according to the constitution. I don't like having no way of knowing.

    Hard to say until the primaries play out and get to see them in action a bit.

    I like a lot of what he says, but one of my big issues with Barack Obama was his lack of relevant job related experience. I think Cain has less than even Obama did . Its hard for me to justify throwing my vote behind someone with so little actual experience garding the government and the executive branch of it.

    We have had lots of experienced politicians over the course of time.
    Are you really so impressed with the results?

    It is so hard to know what a candidate will actually be like in office.

    Campaigning is the easy part. Do we not hear the same rhetoric every four years regardless who is in office? Everybody wants to help out the working man and everyone wants to make America number one again. I can sound pretty good too but doubt I would be effective in an elected office.

    Not having any elected government experience it allows him to throw rocks at other's records but he remains teflon. Give him four years in office and I think he would have a lot of targets on him to throw rocks at.

    He is a gamble but every candidate is. But to all giddy over him is immature.

    At least with experienced politicians you get somewhat a glance in how much they suck up to their lobbyist and cronies. With a total green candidate one is clueless how corrupt they are.

    But you just said..
    "It is so hard to know what a candidate will actually be like in office."

    So what difference does it make?

    Seems he has a lot of executive experience.
