Merry Christmas Cowgirl
Regular commenter cowgirl is a fan of Herman Cain, so here is Dave Weigel's blog post on Cain's possible
(maybe more than possible) presidential campaign. I think Cain has a chance to win support from the Tea Party populist/authentic conservative/not-a-2008-retread market, but I don't see him winning enough support to be a real threat to win the nomination. I think Mike Pence and Cain will compete for a lot of the same voters and Pence will win more. For one thing, Cain has the same FairTax
problem as Huckabee but without Huckabee's name recognition. Cain could win enough votes to deny Pence some crucial early victories and thereby help throw the election to one of the currently better known candidates (like Romney or Huckabee - or Palin if she runs) or to some establishment conservative candidate that party elites consolidate around (Thune?).
