He could be President Obama's worst nightmare a business mastermind, a natural problem solver and a black man of "substance" who says he would "take the race card off the table" in a challenge against Obama as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012.
"We need a realistic candidate to run on the Republican ticket who can beat Barack Obama not just beat the Democrats," Herman Cain, an Atlanta radio talk-show host, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and 2004 Senate seeker, told WND. "We've also got to beat Barack Obama."
He added, "Obama is a master of rhetoric. He is a master of deceptive language. And any white candidate who runs against him will be up against the race card. I take the race card off the table."
Cain, a devout Christian, emphasized he is "prayerfully considering" a 2012 bid for the GOP nomination.
In addition to serving as the former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza for 10 years, Cain, 64, is also former president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He's been vice president of Burger King, vice president of Pillsbury Company, a mathematician for the U.S. Department of the Navy and a business analyst for Coca-Cola. He has a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Morehouse College and a master's degree in computer science from Purdue University.

President Cain? He’s going to have to spend half his time telling people he’s not McCain.
He’s so far from McCain it ain’t funny. Herman is the real deal.
I would vote for this man in a minute. A mathematician for the Navy AND a successful businessman? He’s probably got more brains in his little finger than this reputed lawyer O who never seems to have held a real job in his life.
Unfortunately, I think there are plenty of people who HAVE developed a healthy streak of racism after Obama. He’s set race relations back years.
Obama got in and reinforced almost every bad stereotype whites ever held about blacks. He has done SO much damage.
We could do a helluvalot worse than raising Cain. Put him on a ticket with Sarah Palin (either order) and I’m 100% in!
I read this article earlier today. I liked what I read. He states that he’s praying real hard about a Presidential run in 2012. He sounds like a good man.
Team this guy up with Sarah Palin.
Impressive resume. I heard him speak on TV once and he pulls no punches.
Put him or Lt Col Allen West on the ticket with Palin - any order - and we WIN. Not “we” as in the GOP, but “we” as in America. And no, I don’t care the order on the ticket.
That said, the donks will still get 90% of the black vote. This guy is a bit naïve if he thinks otherwise. Also, the race card will be played relentlessly. He’ll be considered “white” and denigrated as an “oreo” by the obama media because he’s a conservative.
Cain/Palin or Palin/Cain ... works for me but isn’t a very euphonious combination. How about Bachmann/Cain?
Can't seem to hold a job, can he?
Morehouse? Purdue??? Nope, not presidential timber.
(Is the <sarc> tag really necessary?)
Just watched and read about him. I like this guy, and I hate everybody!
Whether he runs for POTUS or not, there is an important place for this man in the near future.
That's what pictures are for. Even the dumbest sheeple get pictures.
You got that right. I’ll just add this:
It was on purpose. A race war would be a real crisis not to be wasted, or so the national socialist democrats think...
I’d vote for him - and I don’t really know anything about him.
If he can get his message out well (past the “oh groan, not another black guy, I don’t want to listen” factor) and doesn’t have any “gotcha” flakey issues like Alan Keyes and his reparations scheme, then maybe he’ll have a chance.
Conservatives can’t afford to muff it this time. Enough smokey back room politics, this needs to come into the 21st century with focus groups and all.
Maybe he can beat Obama ???
Well, I think I could support him.
