Herman Cain and Obama's 1000 Days


My latest on the Daily Mail takes up the rise and what I hope will be the fall of Herman Cain.

I also have an even newer piece on Obama's First 1000 Days.

Please do not respond here, since what is really needed is a show of interest at the Daily Mail.   I would rather be doing these pieces for our own website, but this is the biggest PR opportunity our group has had in recent years.  Your comments, negative as well as positive, will help insure that we keep this important window open.

"Then why are so many Republicans attracted to Herman Cain?  The most obvious reason is that he is a minority underdog.  It is always safe to play the race card with 'the party of Lincoln,' and ever since the New Deal, the GOP has been the party of 'me too.'"
