  •  Cain's not like Keyes. (4+ / 0-)

    Keyes is an ideologue.  Cain's an entrepreneur.

    Stay tuned....

    Stop clapping. Stop screaming. Open your mind. Listen.

        So be prepared to see him lead in most polls before the voting actually starts.

        He's the Howard Dean of this cycle -- the base doesn't like their candidates and is desperate for someone that can carry their banner. The main candidates and media won't take him seriously or engage him until he already has the lead, then they'll savage him.  

        Can he take the flurry of punches once that happens? Dean couldn't.  I highly doubt Cain can. Hell, Obama barely could (though being a near-frontrunner from the very beginning helped him).

        So, he's probably not viable.  But I do think he'll lead in polls before this thing is done.

    •  So Keyes didn't have (or raise) much money (0+ / 0-)

      and Cain will find a way to make himself rich off running.

      Legal or not, most likely.

      Yep, sounds like the perfect GOP candidate.
