I think that he's not a bad candidate, but like so many others (Gingrich, Romeny), he's going to be punished for at one point in time being reasonable.
What gets me is that he took that position as Ambassador to China under the Obama administration. Why? He would have done as well staying in Utah.
He hasn't thrown mud as of yet, but he might be measuring his targets a little more.
As a former Mormon (I left the church in 2008), I'm still kind of excited that two TBMs are running. I wonder how this is going to affect the dynamic, especially with the potential of bigoted comments coming from the opponents.
I think the first one will come from Michelle Bachmann, but it wouldn't surprise me if Cain took it by a nose.
Also, everyone was talking about how cordial the debaters were with each other last night and how focus they were on Obama. However, I give it two months before they really start throwing feces at each other.
Let the monkey parade begin!
