Fresh Faces: Herman Cain

For those of you who do not know him, there is a good article on Herman Cain. It's a well-written synopsis of someone who has worked very hard throughout his life, someone who has made his mark as being an innovative solution man. He has the brilliance to come up with great ideas and the courage to implement them.

For those of you who do not know him, you may get to know him better over the course of the next year, especially if you live in Iowa. He has an exploratory committee already formed and we may know very soon what his intentions are

Once the decision had been made to proceed, there is a good chance that he may find himself to be the front runner in the GOP nomination process. Staying there may prove difficult, but then again once people get to know him I think many will like him.

Certainly lots of people will be enamored with his sincerity. They may also be impressed by his business acumen and his overall mindset. And that includes preserving a nation. He may actually be the man who can truly fix what is wrong with Washington, not just campaign on it.

If it turns out he is not be the best choice, we'll all know when we know.

But I would bet that if he's not, he will be able to work for the right person who may garner more support than him---if that person has a lick of sense. I think he is more than able to serve in some capacity in another person's Administration, if called upon by the right person.

Okay, I'm going to toss in something that shouldn't matter but probably does:

He's too old to win.

Don't get me wrong! I like and respect Herman Cain.

He's a young 65. But you may be right, the desperate detractors can and will use anything.

But I would come back with the word, wisdom. After having someone who has very little experience in the real world, wouldn't it be a refreshing change to have someone who has been there and has poured their sweat into a risky venture or project? It would seem to me that a person who knows more than he/she lets on is more what we need right now.

I know that the one who conservatives are looking to right now is still not ready. And we do not have time to wait for her to get ready.
