    But I think that sadly you are right - he is short. Boring can be countered - the man campaigns off of the back of his Harley Davidson, and a Chris Christie fighter in his corner is enough action for anyone. But the height? I hope that Americans this time around are looking for quiet confidence over pizaz, massive rallies, personality cults, and a complete failure to recognize that reality can't be solved with Really Pretty Speeches... but we shall have to see.
    How short is he? My late husband was 5'2". I like short guys.

    Mitch Daniels is 5'7", which I think is a major handicap for him in a presidential election. The shorter candidate has won the popular vote in only 3 of the last 21 presidential elections...and in one of those, they were almost the same height. The only elections in the last 70 years in which a significantly shorter candidate won the popular vote were 2004 (when 6'0" George Bush beat 6'4" John Kerry) and 1976 (when 5'9" Jimmy Carter beat 6'0" Jerry Ford).

    I have no clue on foreign affairs, but I am guessing he falls in line with the rest of the party.

    A good running mate for Cain would be someone on his tier so to speak. I don't think a governor would run second fiddle to a guy with no political experience. Cain needs to maintain the non-politician image. Maybe he could persuade Petraeus to run, but he will head up the CIA. That would be too much like Perot/Stockdale anyways.

    Can they have stools to stand on behind the podium in debates?
    Seems only fair if people will judge them (even subconsciously) on their height.

    That might make him appear as though he puts up a fake image.

    Maybe...but maybe he'd get some points if he joked about using it, and still look commanding during the debate.
