    It was Cain who gained the most – up into third place with a 7.7 point gain – and Gingrich, up 3.7 points to fourth place who were the big winners, said Silver.

    I would think a Cain/Gingrich ticket would be formidable. Newt would be the perfect VP to work with Congress in getting things done. Cain an affable and intelligent man who understands economic realities as they relate to job creation.

    Both are from Georgia. Both come from humble beginnings. Both are intelligent and hard working.

    Though, I will vote for Anyone But Obama 2012

    I don't think it's constitutional to have a President and vice president from the same state. Anyone know?

    They can be from the same state.

    What will the Blacks do in the voting booth? With the Big 0 vs. any white guy, there's no contest.

    With two Black guys on the ballot, we're probably going to have heads blowing up in the voting booths. If for nothing else than watching the CBC doing yoga exercises to explain why it's racist to vote for a REPUBLICAN Black man, I would love to see this.

    I'd be particularly amused to watch Maxine Waters explaining why a Black man who is a Republican is not really Black. The hypocracy would be delightful!

    I have just found my favorite.

    Thank you.

    I would consult the 12th Amendment...

    But as to from the same State? I don't think there is a precident.

    (The 12th established that two distinct votes be cast from electors one for President, one for Vice President as to dodge what happened with Burr and Hamilton in the 1800 election).

    I'm thinking Romney/Cain. Much more formidable. Both business savvy.. One white, one black, one mormon, one christian.. Whoop. Both rich, no need for class war.. Yup.

    I learned something I never knew before.


    It appears it will never happen, not because it is illegal, but because Georgia has too many electoral votes. Electoral votes have to be split if both candidates on the ticket hail from the same state. It would be political stupidity to give Obama 7 electoral votes.

    I think Newt will make a great Secretary of State.

    That would be a dream ticket to most conservatives and a nightmare to most liberals. I would want Herman at the top.

    I think America is ready for sound practical ideas, of which to me, the most problematic is 9/9/9. That was intro'd as a gimmick before it was sufficiently thought out. It would be, will be a thorn in Cain's saddle.

    OK- Since electoral votes will make a Cain/Gingrich alliance unlikely. Just looking at the hopefuls I would like to see a cabinet like this. Mind you I know there are other qualified persons. This is just using current candidates.

    President- Cain or Romney -both would be focused on economic recovery

    V.P.- Cain or Romney

    Secretary of State- Santorum- strong on foreign policy

    White House Chief of Staff- Gingrich (because of his particular gifts he'd be more useful domestically then as Secretary of State)
