Herman Cain is on my shortlist for 2012. Aside from the obvious (he's a another black conservative) I like the fact that Herman Cain is a long time businessman and an outsider to Washington. My only concern about him is that he has never run a national campaign before.
I am concerned about this because 2012 is going to be brutal. First, the left has set new standards for low with their continued attacks on Palin. All that nasty stuff they throw at Palin will be thrown at the GOP nominee, make no mistake about that. Is Cain ready for all that? Nothing would be more devastating than to have a good man like Cain tarred, smeared and defeated because he wasn't ready for the grinder.
Hopefully the GOP nomination will be extra nasty so that we can gauge how well Cain handles himself.
