Personal insight into Herman Cain's character

There is an interesting post by Christopher Manion at the LRC blog.

Our family met Herman Cain several years ago, and I subsequently had several business contacts with him. I’d love to have him as a neighbor -- he’s genuine, a family man (he even played with our baby daughter), and a great motivational speaker. However, politically, as Howard Baker used to say, “deep down, he’s shallow.”

Surprisingly, Herman admits it – witness his promise to rely on “the experts,” since he knows nothing about foreign policy. But that candor, combined with his admission that he’s “not familiar with the neoconservative movement,” disqualifies him. He not only knows nothing about foreign policy, but he's not prepared to confront the perverse ideology that has informed it for the past ten years.

I'm glad someone posted this link.

I actually logged on just to do it myself only to see it wasn't necessary.

For anyone who is familiar with Dr. Manion personally or his writing, you know he is highly intelligent, knowledgable and honest.

IMO, his post on Cain says just about all there is one needs to know about Cain. He's a good guy and all but......he's not presidential material by any stretch of the imagination.
