Ink and pixels are growing about potential Republican nominees hoping to oppose President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election. One potential candidate—an emerging national brand in the political market—is gaining grassroots support.
He’s being talked about on Facebook and Twitter; he’s been featured in The Daily Beast, The Daily Caller and in other print/web media. Not long ago a dear one and I were having coffee when Cain popped up on the TV on one of those political talk shows. My dear one listened for a few minutes and more excitement ensued than I’ve seen in a long time (at least when it comes to presidential potentials).
The response from my companion?
