    Bombshell? That's what he's been saying for a year. The guy means what he says. I'm sure that having 4 kids between the ages of 8 and 18 played 'heavily' in the decision.

    The bombshell would have been if he decided to run. I think everyone who is going to get in is in. I think it will be Romney / Cain.

    Mormon should not matter, nor should skin color. It certainly didn't hurt Obama.

    Ideally, religious preference and skin color wouldnt matter. In the red south, IT MATTERS! Obama didnt carry the south. Romney/Cain will not energize southern GOP voters.

    Then Romney and/or Cain could win and still not carry the south.

    Its RINO (Republican in name only) btw. Florida is in the south last time I looked and Herman is polling very well there plus Romeny is not doing badly. Could easily happen. I still think Romney and Huntsman could do very well in spite of both being Mormans.

    Obama is in TX today 4 a reason. Perry is struggling politically. Disenfranchised GOP voters may not come out to vote for Romney/Cain. The hispanic vote will be pivotal.

    My point being is that I think a Romney / Cain ticket could win in FL with its 29 electorial votes and Georgia with 16 and Texas with 38. And I can't see AL and MS with 9 and 6 going any other way so that's 98 of the 271 needed

    Dont b so sure. Putting a mormon and african american is a slap in the face to southern right wing comservatives. They will be angry as hell and wont vote.

    I'm not there and have never lived there so I can't speak for them Can't speak for anyone but myself, but it makes not one bit of difference to me.

    If fact, a conservative who just happens to be black is a net positive in my book. I have more respect for him as a poor black in the south to be able to pull himself up and really make something of his life versus someone who was born into privilege.

    I'm going to take my chances that YOU aren't exactly an expert on voting trends and how voters in any particular region will react to any particular candidate. I give the people of the south a great deal more credit apparently than you do.

    In theory, Romney Cain works because it gets the moderates, independents, and pulls some black votes from the Dems. However, it leaves out the rabid right wing ultra conservative and southern conservatives. Perry/Ryan would do better if perry wasnt such an idiot.

    I think it stands to reason that those "rabid right wing ultra conservative and southern conservatives", when given a choice between Obama and say a Romney/Cain ticket, they will bite the bullet and vote Republican regardless.

    Born and raised in Oklahoma and while that may not be the deep south, there are many of the same mentalities there. I don't think you give people in the south nearly the credit they deserve because not all are closed-minded.

    Not necessarily. They may not come out if they feel insulted tht the republican party is ignoring them.

    I'd put money that they will turn out in heavy numbers to vote, because staying home will only assure Obama a win in the south.

    I have a bunch of stuff going on right now so I can’t focus much on this, but I did some looking and I can’t any recent polling data on Herman Cain in Alabama or Mississippi
