Wouldn't it be odd (great?) if they announced they were running as a team?

ie, "we announce today that whichever one of us you select as your Presidential Candidate, the other one of us will be the Vice Presidential Candidate."

That would be tough to beat, I think.

These are the two Republicans that I seem to be leaning towards.

It is important that Herman Cain be the presidential nominee. There are millions of black voters that voted FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES because they were voting for a black man. It was quite a phenomena here in Norristown, PA.

If Herman is running against Barack, black voters will have a choice. If Barack runs against a non-black, they will vote for Barack again.

I think Herman is the only hope for yanking some black voters away from Barack.

I tend to agree with Sue Ann and Cain may have a real shot at courting black voters for no other reason because of his race. But ideologically, I prefer Michelle Bachmann and wish she could make head way in the polls. Cain and Bachmann would be my dream ticket... :wink:

If you're looking for a conservative Republican candidate or VP, Newt Gingrich is not it.


*snip*

But Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999, wants to unite the party. He sees Scozzafava and the Upstate special election – the only House race in the nation this fall -- as the best hope for Republicans to start a comeback and regain control of Congress.

Gingrich is apparently willing to overlook Scozzafava’s support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights.

If you read the article you see this was despite the fact another Republican who was pro-life and against same sex marriage was running against her to be the Republican candidate.

Gingrich slams GOP Medicare plan despite the fact he once said he'd vote for it

*snip*

Gingrich, speaking in an interview on "Meet the Press" on Sunday, argued that the GOP plan for Medicare as outlined in Ryan's proposed 2012 budget was a "radical change" and that we "need a national conversation to get to a better Medicare solution for seniors."

"I'm against Obamacare, which is imposing radical change, and I would be against a conservative imposing radical change," Gingrich told NBC's David Gregory. "I don't think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering... I don't think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate."
