As I've said many times I like what Herman Cain has to say. With that said he would be the democrats dream candidate (or one of them at least). He doesn't stand a ghost of a chance of beating President Obama. He's inexperienced on the campaign trail and has already put his foot in his mouth a few times. On top of that he doesn't have much of a national organization at this time. Granted if he became a serious contender (hot more than just a few weeks) he'd draw support and build an organization. But with four primaries coming up in January I think he has too little too late.
Also, I don't feel that his candidacy has legs. He's hot right now, but that will fade. The press has already begun to pick him apart. And don't count out Perry just yet. Unlike Bachman and the others Perry actually has a lot of money and a reasonably good organization behind him.
Actually the best thing that could have possibly happened to Romney is that his front runner status has been challenged by Perry, Cain and Chris "I'm gonna run...no I'm not..I am...no I'm not" Christie. This has kept the press constantly attacking the front runner and Romney out of the direct firing line of the MSLM.
I know, I know you hate Romney and won't vote for him, I get it. But in my opinion he's looking like the guy to beat. I'm just reporting it as I see it.
