    I'm beginning to think the guy to watch is Huckabee. He's been a governor, he's from the South, he would appeal to the base, he's congenial and has a good sense of humour. On the negative side, he doesn't have much credibility on the economy and has said some things that could turn off moderates. Too early to say, but he is most interesting to me.

    That's not a bad choice, but I would like to see what he says about economics and if he is capable of selecting the best and the brightest for advisory positions. I'm still holding out for Christie and am impressed with Herman Cain, but it is early.

    Republicans really want to elect "Rev. Phelps", but they know it might be difficult to prove he's a "citizen".

    The base isn't a monolithic group. With Romney's name recognition from the last primary and much of the base being divided with large numbers of candidates, it's not inconcievable that he wins.

    Personally, I have no clue who will win. I don't have a man in the race yet. I was a Romney supporter before. But I do like what I'm hearing from Cain and even Ron Paul has grown on me alittle. I think Ill wait till the campaign starts find out everyone who is actually in and then gather more info.

    you don't think it's correct to "hang the religious right thing around his neck".

    it's accurate. why wouldn't they say it. he's said that he thinks religious tenets should be enacted into law.
