Herman Cain will go into the dictionary next to the word 'loser' guaranteed.

It's not about rich and poor. Clearly you're not much into reading (or comprehension), otherwise it wouldn't be so simplistic to you.

It is indicative of the shallowness of the conservative position that they cannot find a candidate to latch on to. Herman Cain is the punchline to a rather long joke that started with Trump and continued with Perry. The last election may have been about the Tea Party and angry conservatives, but this election is about the occupiers and disappointed liberals. I hasten to point out that one need not be liberal to support these marches despite the fact that many of the messages spoken by the crowds have a liberal or even socialist slant to them. The policies of our leaders have brought us to the brink of financial insolvency, yet our leaders blame the poor and the powerless. I wonder which part of history they skipped back in school.

Well, the election is not for over a year, the party not in the white house usually doesn't have the nominee wrapped up the year before the general election and 3 months before the Iowa caucas. Obama didn't latch-onto until he won with white voters in Iowa...then the black community threw the Clintons under the bus because white people would actually vote for a ''black'' candidate...talk about shallowness.

Cain may not go anywhere...or win next November because Obama is vulnerable now.

I find both parties to be morally bankrupt so I see no benefit in pointing out the obvious which is that democrats chose the candidate they thought offered the best chance of winning and they succeeded.

It's all bad...but after the 2008 Democrats treatment of Hillary Clinton I question the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.

I think it will be close or closer, but I'm leaning toward thinking Obama will win too. Which is more than a little weird because, whether it's their fault or not, Presidents who preside over this level of unemployment and economic dissatisfaction usually lose.

However Romney is too weak in the South and they probably need to regain some Southern states. (North Carolina, Virginia, Florida in geographic terms anyway) Perry and Cain are weak in other regions they need. A Romney-Cain ticket could make sense, or a Cain-Romney ticket, but I think it would still have problems.

Now if the Democrats get carried away with the Occupy-Wall-Street thing they could be brushed with the kind of non-compromising "radical" image that might be hurting the GOP with moderate swing voters. That could help the GOP because, if it's a choice of radicals, the US I think would generally prefer Right-leaning ones. If that doesn't happen than Republicans alienation of Hispanic and moderate voters, combined with Obama still being seen as personally likeable, presumably gives it to Obama.

What I don't understand, is that if you remotely support these protests, you are labeled a liberal, unemployed or a socialist.
