    Herman Cain former Federal Reserve chairman. That alone tells you all you need to know about the man.

      Can you tell us when he was Chairman of the Fed? (January 1995 to August 1996) Can you tell us what problems he created as Chairman of the Fed? (None) If not, it should not be brought up just because of the current spotlight on the Fed and problems it has created. He is not against auditing the Fed, although he won't lead the charge. This doesn't mean he was a part of the problem and should be demonized by talking heads that don't want to do the research. He doesn't agree with and isn't impressed by current Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s management of the crisis and weak recovery — he said flatly that he wouldn’t reappoint Bernanke in 2014 if he were president.

    Great candidate. Proven skills. And Wolfie..........what qualifies Herman Cain to be President of the United States? He is a "Native Born US Citizen", he is over the age of 35 and he has lived within the borders of the United States for more than 14 years.

    Wolf, you talking heads should know that these are the only requirements that constitutionally qualifies one to be President of the United States of America. The rest is all chatter (which you seem to like and profit from), but at least Herman Cain has a track record in fixing things and getting back on track.

    Raising Cain 2012..............coming at you like a HermanCain!! 2012

    So funny. When both Hillary and Barack were running for President, they both had the same man-woman marriage stance as Cain, but the press don't concentrate on those views of Dem contenders. When there are so many economic and international woes facing this country, for Blitzer to waste time talking about marriage and abortion is an embarrassment. Blitzer, you had a chance to let Cain talk about small business development and taxes – you are a liberal hack that shouldn't even be interviewing candidates if you don't care about or even comprehend the most important issues.

    Never heard of Herman Cain until a few weeks ago.

    The more I see and hear him, the more I like him.

    Live does begin at conception... no doubt about that.

    And he definitely has my vote.
