      I don’t know; I think I’ll wait until the Rasmussen poll comes out and we see how America feels about this person as a possible presidential candidate.
      SM: I sense a bit of sarcasm here.

      I like Lieutenant Colonel Allen West for President. This Country needs a man like Mr. West.

      I like Herman Cain also but I don’t think enough people know of him.

      I’d vote for either of the above.

      I really, really, really hope your idea gets some traction, because it would be fun to watch West as a Presidential candidate.

      All he would need is Joyce Kaufman as his VP to complete this dream team. How do you think West would feel about having to give-up his super-duper security clearance to that of only a presidential level?
