    Let's clear the air on this one. The GOP isn't going to nominate a preacher for US President. Why does Huckabee even bother? Self-promotion... sell more books, enhance his speaking fees. Can we find a viable candidate who isn't a preacher or community organizer, please? Perhaps, someone with real experience in business. Preferrably, with even a small dose of military experience. BTW, it looks like Newt Gingrich is leaning toward entering the GOP contest. Could be lots of rhetorical fireworks this election cycle. I like several GOP governors, but it's anybody's guess who will get the nomination. Those who want in will need to declare pretty soon.

    I just did a cursory look with Google. Mr Cain has certainly lived an interesting life. One brief report says Cain is recovering from StageIV cancer. If Cain wants to reach conservatives such as myself, he needs to kick it up a notch. Name recognition matters. This much is sure, I will be voting for whomever wins the GOP nomination as the challenger to Obama. As much as I want to believe defeating Obama will be easy, we all know better. It will take a monumental effort to unseat Obama. We may have to resort to dirty tricks... like running Ralph Nader again.

    How many more notches do you need? Search YouTube for "Herman Cain cpac" and spend a worthy 28 minutes watching his speech.

    fired at you from my Droideka

    039... we aren't electing a preacher nor are we nominating someone recently recovering from Stage IV cancer. Mr Cain sounds like a very fine man but his health problems render him unviable. Sorry.

    My buddy runs a pizza joint, and several other businesses. He MAKES MONEY. Maybe a pizza guy would be better than the crop of bums that have popped up so far.

    Huckabee for president? Just say YES if the other choice is Obama. Now, if the GOP wants a strong ticket they should run Christie with Allen West for VP.

    Heard an interesting thing on Chris Wallace Fox panel. Mr. Wan (not sure how to spell it) made a bold statement.

    He said "The reason no one has officially thrown their hat in the Gop race is no one thinks O'bama can be beaten".:eek:

    Another "Numb Nut in the closet".:D

    Cancer? I find no mention of cancer anywhere i look and i listen to his radio show too and even if he is a cancer survivor that shouldnt rule him out of being president did you go to his website read about him on his own web site did you watch his speeches on cpac and at last weekends tea party meeting?
