Anybody but Romney! That’s the call from the Tea Party, even after Romney’s solid debate performance against Gov. Rick Perry in Florida last week. And who did Florida Republicans favor in the weekend’s straw poll? Neither of the frontrunners…Instead, businessman Herman Cain won 37 percent of the vote in the Sunshine State, more than Romney and Perry combined. We’ll talk with msnbc Political Analysts Howard Fineman and Michael Steele tonight about who the Tea Party is looking for. Could Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) be the Tea Party’s cup of tea? read more

Let me finish tonight with the Peace Corps. In the fall of 1951, a young US Congressman went on Meet the Press and told about a recent trip he'd made overseas.  He told with dismay how disappointed he was with the people representing America.  He said he'd talked to college audiences and found lots of young people who would love to go out in the world and represent the United States, especially in third world countries.  He said he wanted "well-rounded" young men and women like them out there - a better picture of America presented in the world. read more

Perry vs. RomneyWhat did we learn about the two Republican frontrunners in last night's debate? For starters, Perry seemed sloppy and awkward at times, and he had trouble landing his punches. Romney's been in this game far longer, knows the ropes, and is more refined. Still, there's a question about authenticity that Romney can't shake, and while Perry hasn't exactly capitalized, you get the sense that at least you know where Perry's coming from. read more
