All of the announced candidates in the race for Presidents are listed below. They are listing in my preferred order of ability and preparation for service in that most important office. There is a reason why I list the incumbent last. if the election were held today amoung the announce candidates I could only vote for two of the following candidates, that would be Herman Cain and Dr. Paul.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has some good ideas, but he also has some very bad ideas. He turned me off forever when he joined with Nancy Pelosi in support of Global Warming. This is inexcusable for a Conservative. He is too inconsistent for me. I would rate him a D- candidate as Presidential material.
I don't know too much about this former Governor. His performance in the first GOP debate in South Carolina a few weeks ago showed that he was much to libertarian for me. He seemed to be very weak on the key social issues. I would rate him an F candidate as Presidential material.
