    that depends, people made sure Cain was thrown out because of affairs, if MLKs came to light, could you say its okay for one candidant and not the other? Would you vote for MLK based on what criteria? Just because hes black? Because he gives good speeches? What would be the cause for such a promotion?

    Just because Obama got in because of lack of creditenials and in my opinion the left just wants to downgrade this postiion and pretty much proved they will give it to anyone for any means, would we as conservatives do the same just to get our guy in? I would hope we wouldnt.


    Youd have to show me why MLK deserves such a position, and than bring up his background and lay down the foundation if its okay for him, but not other people.

    I don't know if I would vote for him or not. Depended on what he had to say. Voting for somebody just because of who they are is pretty lame.

    If MLK ran today, the election would be all about his mistresses, his socialism, his drug use, and his ties to domestic terrorists. His pacifism would be used against him in the foreign affairs debates.

    I would have to hear his stances on the economy, foreign policy, trade, etc. Would he have my vote simply because of his work with civil rights? As much as I respect his work in that regard, no.

    There is absolutely NOTHING the guy ever did that remotely suggests he would be qualified to be President. NOTHING. At least Herman Cain ran a pizza business.

    Mmmmmm, pizza

    All you have to do is look at the body of work by Andrew Young and Jesse Jackson to know where MLK would stand on the issues.

    Far left. Far, far left.
