According to Armstrong Williams, Republican Herman Cain has qualities that will make him an ideal vice presidential candidate for the GOP nomination.
Herman Cain for Veep By Armstrong Williams For NewsUSA I continue to be impressed with Herman Cain. And after the kind of week he’s had – first during Thursday night’s GOP debates, and then winning Florida’s straw poll – it’s beginning to show this guy has given the presidency a lot of careful thought. And his views are resonating with the masses. That’s what it takes to win this nomination – consideration over not just what it will take to pull this economy out of recession, but what to do about the other big problems we as a society face. You see, Cain doesn’t fixate on one thing. It all has a purpose, fits together. That’s what comes through when you’re a veteran CEO. I see those same traits in him as I do in me when I run my business. It’s almost a black-and- white picture. I say “almost” because public policy is inherently grey. But even then, Cain seems to understand and appreciate the nuances of what he or the next President will face. So, why the title of this blog as Cain for VICE president? I just doubt he can win. The deck seems stacked against him. Not because of the color of his skin (isn’t it great, by the way, that in these times, we can say such things without hesitation? That’s progress.), but rather, he lacks the network and infrastructure to pull off the upset. But even if he can’t go all the way and secure the GOP nomination, the ultimate winner should definitely take a look at this man for his #2 spot. What a powerful ticket partner Cain would make; a successful business man who also takes time to study foreign relations and other executive mandates. Yet he doesn’t lose sight of the common sense that escapes Washington by the ton each and every day. And unlike other so-called second tier candidates such as Jon Huntsman or Rick Santorum, there’s no desperation in Cain’s voice. He’s not trying to out-shout his peers on the stage. He has points to be made, and he’ll wait his turn to make them. But when it does come around to him, his responses are equally demonstrative and purposeful. His thoughts on Social Security last Thursday and how to reform the program, for example, showed the consideration he’s given these intractable issues we face. Like I said, I continue to be impressed with Mr. Cain.
