*** None of the above: So what do we make of Herman Cains surprising -- and overwhelming -- victory at Saturdays Florida Straw Poll? Call it a vote for None of the Above by the conservatives who gathered in Orlando. They didnt break for second-place finisher Rick Perry after his debate struggles and after they displayed chinks in his conservative armor (on immigration and HPV).

First,would the Republican Party nominate a black candidate and second, this would be a historical event-two black Presidential candidates sin the USA.
Why wouldn't republicans nominate a Black candidate? There have been many Black conservatives/republicans. I like Herman Caine and would vote for him sooner than I would Perry. I have voted for Perry a lot.
First off, Obama is only HALF black. Leave it to the republicans to put up a real black man as a candidate! I think Cain would be brilliant!
I don't know why you would say such a dumb thing...oh yeah look who is talking...
What does being mixed have to do with running a Country? Your skin color is not in anyway a part of the mind. The mind is a grey matter with many functions. Are you saying if a white man ran the Country it would do better? I am white but offended by the comment. Are you stating what you are trying to say correctly?
She didn't say anything about a white person, she said she thought Herman Cain being the nominee would be great.
I understand, but she commented about Obama being mixed. What does that have to do with running the Country? So I continued on my journey for writing my perception of her words. Maybe I read to deep.
She was saying that the only Black man was Herman Cain, Obama is half white.
I realize he is half white and Cain is black but the color of the person who is running for President has nothing to do with how the Country will be ran. Why does society have to say " so and so is Black and so and so is White?" They are people. Just say, " Cain is running in the Presidency along with blah, blah, blah." Black, White who cares so long as we get someone in who can do the job. I personally hope it is a woman! To much testosterone going on in Washington.
You are missing the point, its not about what color can run the country, its not about running the country at all. It was an attempt at humor.
I didn't see the dry humor and I wasn't missing the point, but maybe you were missing what I was really trying to say. That is why I said, " I read into her comment to deeply. "
I saw the dry humor but I have a dry sense of humor.
I know you do. It is o.k. all of us have something to bring to the table in these threads and I need to learn to not look at comments so seriously all of the time. Thank you for reminding me.
You people are reading into what I wrote stuff that isn't there. The OP said if Cain won there would be 2 black candidates. That is inaccurate, one black candidate, and one half black candidate. It's important to be accurate.
Impressive. I don't see it as two black Presidents. I see it as what someone can do for our Country. We can't place blame on our President now, those entire situation with our economy has been snowballing since Bush was President. We have to look at Congress and Senate we need to vote all of them out and start over. We need both Republican and Democrats who are willing to work with our Presidency not against the President to accomplish there goals.
Bush was just as unfortunate he had Democrats and Republicans who were not backing him either. To much testosterone sitting there, we need some estrogen too. You can bet things will get accomplished then. lolo!
Cain isn't remotely qualified to be president. He should stick to making pizzas.
How about making history by electing a president who actually delivers what he promises?
My purpose in posting this was to show how the civil rights movement and equality have come a long way.

Are they still so enamored of Obama that he's the only candidate they'll consider?Is there no other Democrat who wants to run for President, and if so, why do you think that is?
