2012 sleeper: Herman Cain?

Now, to be fair, he also has a huge twitter following and microphone to drive people to vote. He garnered 8,900 votes to Governor Sarah Palin’s 8100 votes. Mighty impressive.

Herman Cain is the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a radio show host on WSB in Atlanta, and, judging by RedState Readers, the Republican Party’s 2012 Nominee for President of the United States.

He’s a tremendously good speaker and a thoughtful conservative. He rejects the idea of “big government conservatism” and believes in empowering individuals. I like Herman Cain and, though truth be told I never thought he’d make it past Mike Pence, I am delightfully surprised by the results.
