    Simple really.
    I will be happy to answer the questions about the topic but will not jump at your bait to rip into fellow posters or make this about you.

    Which candidates on the list are not true belivers?

    Trump believes only in himself or whatever he feels at that point in time he needs to profess belief in to get over.

    Romney is probably less of the right wing True Believer than the others on the list and probably fails the criteria test.

    Pawlenty would not have been placed in that category a couple of years ago but now I have no idea if he is or is not. Time will tell.

    Now its your turn - why do you see red and get upset every time a perfectly acceptable term of politics and sociology is used here?

    Fox News Suspends Newt Gingrich | Rick Santurom | Presidential Candidacy | Mediaite
    Fox, in an e-mail to POLITICO, indicated that once any of the candidates declares for the presidency he or she will have to sever the deal with the network.
    Palin never declared herself a candidate or formed an exploratory committee When/if she does, she's out as a paid contributor.

    A few weeks ago I would have bet that Palin would NOT run figuring she could not win. But now with Huckabee out and Trump out as well, I wonder if the allure of the race will make her run that risk of losing to Obama calculating that she can still win the nomination and anything is possible with a drastic change in national or world events that changes the playing field in her favor?

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    In your poll you forgot about...

    GEORGE SR. & BABS PLAN
    Apparently they wanted Jeb to be POTUS even more than george jr. Unfortunately for them Jeb wants no part of running for POTUS. Sooo mommy & daddy's plan for 2012? Make all the other gop candidates look weak. Ya know that comment that babs made about Palin staying in Alaska? Not just a flip answer. (part of the plan) This way if they can talk Jeb into it even a last min. He has a great chance.

    I guess Jeb would fall into to "other" cattagory even tho I officially voted that Romney would be the pick.

    Laura Bush has called Mitch Daniels wife. Apparently to give her advice/encouragement about what it's like to be first lady. I think the Bush's must want Mitch to run. Mitch has left the decision up to his wife.

    That's just sad. Nothing about his platform to back that thought?
