Presidential Elections 2012 - #2735 - 2012 Candidates for President Ranked in NCAA Style Regionals - Human Events

As the NCAA college basketball tournament kicks off this week, I thought it would be a good time to divide the potential 2012 GOP presidential candidates into four regionals, and rank the top four candidates in each. The Cloth Coat Regional  -  This regional consists of candidates who appeal to the "cloth coat" electorate, famously coined by Richard Nixon, as opposed to the mink coat, Rockefeller-type Republicans. Basically, these candidates—and their message—appeal to the members of the GOP electorate who will pick the candidate they think is “most like them” and will “fight for them.” Obviously, this is not quantifiable. It’s more of a “know-it-when-I see-it” metric. The challenges these candidates face, should they choose to enter the race, will be putting together an effective organization and maintaining the discipline necessary to last through a grueling campaign season.  Read more.......  Very interesting analysis of potential candidates.
