    FILE - in this Feb. 8, 2011 file photo, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa listens at the National Press Club in Washington. House Democrats have reserved more than $32 million in ad time in districts across the country, giving an early sketch of the race for control of the House.

    FILE - In this Oct. 31, 2011 file photo, then-Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain holds up a muffin that has his catch-phrase 9-9-9 tax plan printed on it before speaking at the National Press Club in Washington.

Or Rick Perry's "oops" moment _ when he couldn't recall that third federal agency he wanted to eliminate? (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
