Potential presidential candidate Herman Cain made some waves at CPAC this past week, delivering an exciting speech & a few poignant one-liners.
I had already essentially heard this speech twice–at the Arkansas Defending the American Dream Summit in June 2010 & at the National D.A.D. Summit in D.C. in August 2010–so I was surprised to find myself equally captivated & impressed the third time.
Cain announced a few weeks ago that he was forming a presidential exploratory committee. I have some doubts that he can compete with some of the other big names out there who have competed in presidential races in the past (Romney, Huckabee, Palin), but I hope he can. I think he will bring an important perspective to the process.
*Note: Cain will be speaking at the Arkansas D.A.D. Summit again this year, coming up next week in Little Rock.
