Yes he can win the nomination
No, He's just the GOP's flavor of the week
Something else. Like maybe a Turtle

There should be Instant Runoff Voting
There is ZERO chance that the GOP will ever give the nod to a black man....at least in this decade.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
And it's been posted that he's done far more than just that.As for Herman Cain, I think Zyph already did a good enough job explaining why he'd have a major disadvantage. Running a pizza company doesn't qualify someone for being President of the U.S.
I do not know a lot about Cain. As I noted, my support right now is in the fact that he is not Perry or Romney. I've seen nothing to put him at a serious disadvantage yet.Cain lost me when he showed his complete ignorance of the Palestinian refugee problem, which even my high school history class was made aware of. He'd have to learn about what's going on in the world really fast... and I don't want another learn-as-you-go President. We already have one of those now, and it hasn't worked out so well.
Serious disadvantage? No, Cain as of right now does not have one yet.
If he continues to gain traction, someone in the msm media (god willing) will do some research on his past decisions and it'll become a big headline. There is a lot to work with if they just use google. But this just depends if anyone writes or talks about it.

I may be the minority, but actually one of the reasons i like Cain is because he doesn't have any experience in government.
I think its laughable why everyone thinks being governor/congressman/etc. actually prepares you for being leader of the free world. Every single candidate just gets tossed into the position.
He is more Honest then any other candidate, possibly ever. As a successful business man i think think he can apply those skills to fit the presidential position better then a congressman would (ALL THEY EVER DO ANYWAY Is JUST SLEEP IN THE STANDS AND TALK ****)
Problem with Obama is that he didn't have experience in pretty much anything worthwhile to become president.
And ill start on the foreign policy.
Cains stance on foreign policy IS EXACTLY what I was looking for in a president. I actually came to thins conclusion on my own years ago before i even knew the guy. NO one except CIA and Military leaders knows the actually objectives and crap that actually is going down in the world today.
The media knows nothing but rumors and official accouterments. And few congressmen actually are involved into the classified operations.
What can prepare for that?
Cains stance and my stance for anyone who is actually being honest about foreign policy is " I will listen to the professionals and generals and make the best decisions I can make taking everything into account and morally follow the values of the united states and the constitution" (that's not a quote but me expressing the idea)
This is the exact reason why when Obama stepped into office he flip-flopped on a LOT of foreign policy decisions. He was finally informed and got to talk to the professionals that were actually involved while being exposed to all the secret information at hand.
This shows that Cain is honest and is capable of making good decisions because he already has a better understanding his role as president then most other people do.
