I love that Herman Cain is doing so well in polling early on for the Republican nomination—when Sen. Barack Obama ran for president, the right was apoplectic over his inexperience, yet one of the best-performing names for them in the polls now is a former pizza CEO???
Business experience is an interesting thing to have when it comes to the managerial aspect of the presidency, but America is NOT a business. It should not be run as a business.
Anyone who thinks Republicans are inherently racist and won't nominate a black guy is nuts. Even if many Republicans are racist (and hey, not a few Democrats are racist!), what's not to love about a guy who will push all the issues you care about? And doesn't it make him even more lovable if he's black, thereby proving to the left that you're not racist?
This guy is going to be a big player in '12, and would probably make an excellent VP pick to round out Romney's ticket if Romney decides against pulling in a woman.
