Cain is not able.

Lehi, UT

First of all, I don't see how and why this long article about Cain is reprinted in DN. Cain is NOT for real! That's the answer. This article only serves to try and resurrect Cain's defunct campaign and to make relevant the irrelevant. And I don't care about how much money he's raising or where he's at in some polls. He is essentially DONE! Any relevance left for Cain is also a reflection on the sad and pathetic state of those people who still support someone who was never serious from the beginning and who is clearly inept and unqualified to be president. I'd be more interested in articles on other real candidates. For Cain, he may already be regretting his decision to run; he's been exposed and tainted to say the least.

Cain appears to be a fairly adept salesman. As we see and hear more from him, many will suggest that he step aside, and continue in that line of work.

Cain will make a great president; he has charm, humor and believes in math-------perhaps we are all too uptight and need someone with those three characteristics.

Show biz.

We have Obama as president now. Even Cain would do a better job.

Laie, HI

To say that Cain would do a better job is ludicrous. Cain would be a lacky for the powerful. Another Bush Jr that was a mouthpiece for the powerful and influential....that made tremendous mistakes that have, and will continue, to cost us dearly.

Cain is a successful businessman and has brought companies back from the brink. I would like to see him bring the US back from the cesspool it has ended up in. This man brings experience, dedication and a lot of a hope. It would also eliminate any blame of racism on Obama's demise.

I love Herman Cain. I think he's great. He's not ready to be president. Case closed.

Draper, UT

Cain is a media candidate: Good copy, little substance. He will fizzle and fade like Bachmann, Perry and similar bottle rockets who are seeking the GOP nomination.

Notice how he's not taking any questions, and has yet to dispell the allegations against him.

Cain is just another in a long line of "jokes" running on the Republican party wannabee list. He was the "flavor of the month". I wonder who's next?

Roosevelt, UT

Wonderful to get insight into this man

I think he's really neat because he's republican. He can get us back on track.

Probably Gingrich, and he's even worse than Cain.

Holladay, UT

The Republican field has many candidates that lack the depth, the conviction, the experience, the knowledge and the integrity necessary to lead our country.

Ron Paul is one of the exceptions.

At this point I can't for the life of me see why any Republican could take Cain seriously. But the same can be said for most of the other Republican candidates as well. Cain was the last clown of the month, Gingrich is this month's offering.

Bountiful, UT

He said to the un-employed, "If you don't have a job, if you are not rich it is your own fault".

Earth to Cain, the United States is in a period of high un-employment. There are not enough jobs to go around right now. Your thinking is typical conservative republican. Were people to vote for you, they would deserve what they got.

When people wait around for someone else to "give" them a job, they're going to be waiting a long time.

Bill Gates didn't wait around until someone hired him to write BASIC. Apple Computer was not founded after the two Steves had customers pounding at their doors.

Look at every successful businessman and you'll see that he believed in himself even if others didn't. He trusted his judgment when others held back. He invested his own money when others saw him as a risk.

Mr. Cain is that kind of man. He is pressing forward regardless of what others say or think or do. We need that kind of man in the White House.

If he makes it on the ballot, he'll get my vote.

Out of a field of losers, Cain is by far the worst.

But wait. There's Michelle. Okay, she's the worst.

Oh, no. There's Perry. Revise all that.

What's that noise? Nothing. Romney just flipped again.

That's it! I just figured it out!

The Republican campaign is a race to the bottom.

Tag! You're it!
