I don't give much credence to straw polls, but I was happy to see that for once my man "won" a straw poll. My woman, Bachmann, has also "won" one. None of the other men appeal to me as candidates. Too mooshy.
I love Cain's wisdom and experience. I love his respectful way of speaking about those who disagree with him. I love that he can admit when he was wrong ( for example not auditing the Fed Reserve is wrong, and he has switched on that.) I love how he loves this country, and I love his open book "story" of his life. I love that he isn't a career politician, he is in it for the good of his country for the sake of his grandchildren. I love his wise common sense.
I know he could appoint good folks to advise him in all areas domestic and foreign, and would follow our laws and our Constitution while trying to steer our USA Titanic away from the iceberg we are hitting. I don't expect a President to know it all, I expect a President to appoint smart folks to know it all, as s/he leads by vision and setting the nation's agenda, in domestic and foreign policy.
I know this will be short-lived. I know that Perry or Romney will be drummed into our heads by our media. But I am enjoying this brief moment of respite from the constant barrage of 2 folks who are too far to the left on this issue or that for my taste.
BTW, found a nice site on all the Republican candidates. Enjoy.
