Herman Cain
Yes, I'm still backing Gov. Perry even with his stumbles in the debates (and who really likes debates?), but the more I hear from Mr. Cain, the more I like him.

Especially his tax plan; I really wish that every candidate would back it (Sarah, when you run, listen :) because it is the one plan I've seen that I think even Democrats could get behind. (The people not the pols)

It's called the 999 plan and it basically removes all the old taxes and puts 9% tax on 3 separate things (people, business and sales)
The 9-9-9 Plan is simple, transparent, efficient, fair and neutral. It taxes everything once but nothing twice. There would be the fewest opportunities to evade the tax and the least incentive to do so. Importantly, the plan would generate the most growth and jobs and provide certainty to the engine of economic growth — the business sector.
Read the rest here. It's a great plan by someone who knows how to run a business.

With his upward movement lately; Mr. Cain may indeed be a player when the voting starts.

Trouble with Romney and Perry are they're career politicians. Policy is important, yes but so is how hard your candidate will push. Bachmann would push hard although she's obviously the stalking horse and won't get the nomination.

The slick career politician is not trusted these days [hence the Tea Party] and yet people want a firm hand on the tiller. Can't have both.

A 'career' politician that gets results is still a good horse to bet on.

Bachman lost all chance she had with the claim that vaccines (in 11-12 year olds) cause 'mental retardation' and then with nothing to back it up; sticking to it.

Perry has a history of pro-growth and low taxes; something sorely needed. Cain has a history of business; something that will help tons, if he can get his feet straight on foreign policy.
