It's a bit early to believe that it means anything this early. About a month before the election, if Cain is still around, I'll be very surprised.

Cain sounds better than Obama, and while not ideal, the lesser of two evils would be Cain.

Well thought out, my 2 cents. I suppose you'd also like back that penny you have coming back to you? For I couldn't in good conscience take your entire 2 cents for the opinion you've offered. It's not worth that much.

He would be an OK VP for Mitt.

Cain is a Black man, that's why he's is not able to raise $$$$$$$$ like Romney & the white Texan, what's his name.

It's nice to pump him up on a blog, it's quite anothers to give him your hard earned money and vote for him in the secrecy of a ballot box.

That's right - every time something doesn't go your way, blame it on racism.

Does it ever get tiring to have such a distorted view of the world? Or does it make you sleep better at night knowing you can blame any personal failures on someone else?

All those out there that cry wolf with regards to racism are doing a diservice to those times when it really does happen.

obama is black and although he can garner large corp and personal donations from his leftist compatriots, he is unqualified to lead this country. But, it would not matter whether he was brown or yellow, he is still leading in the competition for the worst president ever. Herman Cain knows this and so do the rest of the candidates. Anyone but obami........

I honestly don't care if the person running for office is white, black, green, or purple! I do care if they have too much experience and reliance on BIG Oil, BIG Banks, and lots of money!! I'd like to see GOP get a moderate in! I looked up some of Cain's background, and am iffy on his "Fed's" stance; just like I don't like Perry's right-wing extremism. I'm tired of voting for the "lesser" of two evils. I wish we had a third party that is "by the people" and "for the people" instead of the extremist ones we have. Nobody represents the majority of the taxpaying middle class anymore - neither Democrats with their socialist agenda or Republicans with their entitlements to big business and the rich.

It does not really matter to me at all. Voted for Obama last time and was fooled. I will vote for anyone running against him this time and for the elected officials in this state as well. Out with the old and in with the new I say.

Cain is a black man. That matters to Caucasoid Americans. The truth hurts.

Cain isn't a serious candidate and Ron Paul had it right in the quote.
