Raising Cain

Dan Henninger suggest giving Herman Cain a serious look for president.
When Mr. Cain talked to the Journal's editors, the most startling thing he said, and which he's been repeating lately, was that he could win one-third of the black vote. Seeing Herman Cain make his case to black audiences would be interesting, period. Years ago, describing his chauffeur father's influence on him in Atlanta, Mr. Cain said: "My father gave me a sense of pride. He was the best damn chauffeur. He knew it, and everybody else knew it." Here's guessing he'd get more of this vote than past GOP candidates.
I always thought the first black president would be a conservative. I was wrong. Maybe the second black president will be. I'd be proud to vote for him and so would millions of other white people after listening to his prescription for getting the country back on the right track.

And you've got love this:
In 1986, Pillsbury sent the 41-year-old Mr. Cain to turn around their Godfather's Pizza business, headquartered in Omaha. The Herman Cain who arrived there April 1 sounded like the same man who roused voters last Sunday in Florida: "I'm Herman Cain and this ain't no April Fool's joke. We are not dead. Our objective is to prove to Pillsbury and everyone else that we will survive."
If come next April, Mr. Cain is still in the hunt for the GOP nomination, it won't be no joke. If he can school Bill Clinton during his effort to sell his wife's failed healthcare bill (as he does below), just imagine what he'd do to Obama.
