    Re: Herman Cain for president?

    He's right about coal, natural gas, and our dependence on foreign oil being a security issue. I'm not sure where he stands on other issues.

    So, what would he do about it were he to be elected president?

    What experience does he have?

Cain's newspaper column is distributed by North Star Writers Group. He currently lives in the Atlanta suburbs.

    He ran for Senate, but he didn't win the GOP primary and that's as far as his political career goes. He is more of a journalist than anything.

    He has never served in a public office... He ran for a Senate seat, but lost in the primary. He has less experience than Obama...

    C'maaan. That doesn't matter now! Know why? Cause Obama was black and his citizenship was in question. Oh and he was a community activist. Did I mention community activist?

    Radio talk show host was just his most recent career.

    Read his bio. It's pretty impressive.
    Oh yea, and here he is leaving Bill Clinton pretty much speechless.

    He's a nice guy, good speaker.

    He's run large businesses before as a CEO.

    Less experience than Obama had when he took office? If he was CEO of a pizza chain, he must have had to learn to make executive decisions, manage a budget, and meet a payroll. Yes, it sounds like his resume is a little thin, but not as thin as the current POTUS' was.

    I don't think it's thin at all. Do we really want another career politician?

    After earning my Master’s degree and six years working for the Department of the Navy
    I enjoyed a successful career at the Coca-Cola Company
    moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period, I rose to the position of Vice President. When I got there, I thought I had already achieved my American Dream on the 31st floor of the new Pillsbury Corporate Headquarters with a corner office. But I quickly realized I wanted something more.
    Pillsbury’s Burger King division. After nine months of a grueling restaurant experience, I was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 Burger King restaurants. Within three years, we became the best-performing region in the U.S.


    I could have been content with my executive role with one of America’s biggest corporations. Instead, after consulting with my wife, we decided to take one of the biggest risks of our marriage: picking up our young family, relocating yet again and accepting the call to become CEO and President of Godfather’s Pizza, a company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

    In 14 months, we turned the company around and returned it to profitability, and I ultimately led my management team to a buyout of Godfather’s Pizza. The company never went bankrupt, and today, there are still hundreds of locations across the U.S.

    My success at turning around Godfather’s got the attention of fellow restaurateurs around the nation who invited me to join the Board of Directors of the National Restaurant Association and later elected me its chairman. In 1996, they retained me as the full-time President and the CEO of the National Restaurant Association, working on behalf of thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs.


    Through these and other appearances on behalf of the National Restaurant Association, I began working with business leaders across all sectors of the American economy. This led to my acceptance of a position on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and I was subsequently elected their chairman.

    Today, I host a radio talk show, “The Herman Cain Show,” on
    I am grateful for the many professional successes I have enjoyed. I am grateful for the steadfast loyalty and unwavering love of my family and friends. And I am grateful for this country that is so exceptional that I was afforded the opportunity to achieve my American Dreams.

    I’m not done yet!

    Hm.. maybe not. We do need someone who can shake things up in Washington.

    Where does this guy stand on the issues? Health care, SS, the war on terror, the war on drugs, and the real biggie, the economy and deficit spending?

    From your wiki link. This is how he lost the run for senate. nothing to be embarrassed about.
    2004 U.S. Senate candidacyIn 2004, Cain ran for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, pursuing the seat that came open with the retirement of Democrat Zell Miller. Cain sought the Republican nomination, facing congressmen Johnny Isakson and Mac Collins in the primary. Cain and Collins both hoped to deny Isakson a majority on primary day in order to force him into a runoff.[citation needed] Collins tried to paint Cain as a moderate,[8] citing Cain's support for affirmative action programs, while Cain argued that he was a conservative, noting that he opposed the legality of abortion even in cases of rape and incest.[9] Cain finished second in the primary with 26.2% of the vote, ahead of Collins, who won 20.6%, but because Isakson won 53.2% of the vote, Isakson was able to avoid a runoff.[10]
