Herman Cain would help convince “blacks” that they can be conservatives

Dear Editor,

Let me join Dennis Miller (who was not joking) in suggesting Herman Cain for the (R) nomination for president. Obama can always appoint Hillary Clinton as his running mate, and drop Biden if things get tough, but really the history of one-term presidents offers scant hope for change conservatives can believe in.

Nominating the “Godfather” for president would help convince “blacks” in America that they can be conservatives. More should be voting Republican already, but many African Americans seem timid out of tradition rather than their values. Maybe Herman Cain can change that statistic for the future of the Republican party even if he can’t beat the credit-card president.
