    Yeah, he has a reputation of making jokes at his own expense

    So, if people just stopped with this ASSUMPTION that Paul "can't win" then not only CAN he win... but he WILL win. Of course the Ron Paul demonization campaign is going to come into full swing pretty soon.

    Guy wins all the polls, all the debates, has REAL demonstrable integrity (something which makes him unique in this day), but the media won't address where he's turning heads, but instead of saying he can't win, they just report on those times that he wins and mention all others running.

    It'd be like the media reporting on the super-bowl the day after without ever mentioning the winner.
    polls now mean nothing and there is no chance Ron Paul can beat Obama

    Seems only fair if people will judge them (even subconsciously) on their height.
    the pre-debate hagglings usually invovle camera angle agreements, which take into account fixing just such disparities.

    but yeah, he's a pretty humble guy, but i don't really see him playing second fiddle.

    an interesting note to the poll is that the results change when you remove the people who are unlikely to vote in republican primaries, given that they are aligned rather with the other side of the aisle.

    That's no surprise, he knows he can't beat Obama.

    i don't even think it's a question of beating Obama. I think in 2012 it's a question of whether or not we can beat the unions.


    Who Gains with Huck Out?

    It’s unlikely that Mike Huckabee’s decision to forgo a presidential run will significantly boost any candidate.

    “I don’t think anybody gains tremendously from this,” says Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “I can see three or four candidates who can pick off social conservatives or Southerners or blue collar Republicans and Independents. I just don’t see there being a real Huckabee bloc that moves en masse to anybody.”

    Sabato thinks that Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, and Tim Pawlenty are among those who could gain some of the social conservative voters that have backed Mike Huckabee, while southern voters might drift to Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich...

    “He hates Mitt Romney,” Sabato says. “Given that intense dislike, one has to assume that he will at least make comments hurtful to Romney and maybe endorse one of the other candidates at some point to try to stop Romney, if indeed Romney’s moving forward.”

    Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Iowa Republican Party, sees Santorum as gaining the most in Iowa from Huckabee’s decision...

    Robinson also points out that Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008, could have a “significant” impact on the caucuses again this year if he chooses to endorse a candidate.

    Whoooohooooo! Mr. Cain had another good day. Newt....not so much the day before. Cain brought down the house on Sat.


    Herman Cain wows GOP crowd
    MACON, Ga.
    -- Herman Cain repeatedly brought Georgia Republicans to their feet with cheers when he brought his presidential campaign to the state party's convention Saturday.

    Those were all ideas that resonated with Bibb County Delegate Bill Knowles.
    "He makes you proud to be an American every time he opens his mouth," says Knowles.
    He also attended presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's convention speech on Friday night. [/QUOTE
    ]"Mr. Cain doesn't have the baggage that Mr Gingrich has got number one. And number to you can see that there's a lot more excitement with Mr Cain that Mr. Gingrich last night," says Knowles, who plans to support Cain.
    Cain Says,"I have two weaknesses that I know of, that I'm going to admit. One is, I'm not very good with political correctness. I kind of tell it like it is. And secondly, I don't pander real well."
