    But that was a different time. It was far harder to make a name for yourself then; a lot less media around with no internet and just three networks. But he does have the same advantage he had last time: he's running against a bunch of Juggaloes... and crap Juggaloes at that.

      ... my guess would be Ted Cruz. He's a smooth-talker and completely in line with what the Base of the party wants.

        If Cruz looks like he'll be the nominee, there will be Wall Street guys forcing cash into his hand. Big Business fears Cruz. This is the guy that wants to shut down government at the drop of a hat and not raise the debt ceiling. Rich guys don't like their companies not getting paid by Uncle Sam and they like global financial panics and the ensuing longterm recession even less (bad for profits).

          I doubt that Wall Street money is going to be able to stop him. Besides I don't think he's exactly lame when it comes to fundraising.

          Cruz has already had his New Yorker profile, so the mainstreaming is already underway.

            And it all depends how many candidates run etc. It's possible to get all the delegates with 20-25% of the votes.

            Either way, Chamber of Commerce types would go down fighting (with money, because, you know, real fighting is for teh poorz).
