    Announcement coming in a little while.
    Wins "Best Looking" in the class...but that's about it.
    Where do her 12 supporters go from here?

    I liked her for the simple reason that like Palin, Perry she brought out the hidden hate and vicious nature that lies beneath the surface of left Wing Liberalism.

    Best of luck to her, I fully expect her to endorse Santorum.

    Again, I think you're jumping the gun here. Has he announced that he's quitting? I've not seen anything to that effect - only that he was going home to "think about it." I've also seen several reputable media sources saying that he's staying in and moving on to SC.

    If you've got concrete info that I'm incorrect, please direct us to it.

    Reports were that he was re-assessing his campaign... At this point, that's political speak for, cancelling. But your right, he says he's still in it... Which is what he will say until he quits.

    I would never vote for Bachman, but I will say she presented herself in my view, as actually having a brain. From afar I had the impression that she was on the moron side of the spectrum, but she actually has a decent grasp of most issues. Not that I agree with her stance on them, but she at least seemed knowlegable. More so than I presumed at least.

    Perry on the other hand, was the complete opposite. I assumed he had a brain, and quickly learned otherwise. Maybe the most underwhelming candidate I've seen in my lifetime.

    I would say Bachmann beat expectations on what people thought they would get from her. But the only reason why she was even considered a candidate was because she rose the wave of the Tea Party.

    I just don't think being a by product of something else gets you a strong base of support, and once her up swell came and went, she had nothing left.

    Good for her though, each time a woman runs and losses, there are millions of women seeing that it's possible, until one day we elect one.

    He did, but an aid leaned over and reminded him that George Bush can't run for president again. Awkward moment.:cool:
