Too bad it's impossible to get tickets. I've been trying since the day it was announced :(

I know. I am seriously bummed about that.

I've watched every debate, and I am impressed with many of these candidates; but, as I've seen what Newt brings to the table, there is no one who can touch the massive information in his brain. He is quick, sharp, knowledgeable, and knows the workings of the Government in and out. I see him as the best chance out of this mess we're in. I also love Herman Cain, because - unlike the trash we've seen in the news this week - he seems to be a "what you see is what you get" kinda guy. There's not been proof of anything, except for Gloria Allred's addiction to the spotlight and enjoyment of destroying other people, and possible hatred of men. Besides, if Clinton can be re-elected after his disgusting behavior (while in the Whitehouse) and can purger himself in Court and not be thrown in prison, I happen to wonder, why all the fuss?
