*** 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.
We had the first minority president which set a precedent and now we may have two minority candidates...

Presidential CandidatesI currently feel that when I cast my vote during the next Presidential Election - that my choice will simply come down to "the lesser evil" so to speak. Its been some time since there was a candidate that I could really get behind 100%. Anyone else feel the same?

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?

Three out of four presidential candidates are anti-vaxxers. How will this affect your vote?The four candidates (Johnson and Stein included) also have differing views on science in general. Still,in this particular area, all but one candidate believes that vaccines cause autism in children....

I choose to support a candidate based on issues, which is not to say that I wouldn't rule out a candidate based on behavior alone (Trump, for example). However, I overwhelmingly base my vote on who I most agree with most on the issues. A candidate's personal behavior and demeanor is...

The current debate format is a farce and is nothing more than a slug fest that we watch. The moderators have little to no control over the debaters. John Donvan has a petition that proposes change the current format to the Oxford style format where the debates are done in a civil manner...
