He wouldn't have won the ticket, no doubt. But Lily made the comment that Republicans would never vote for a black or a woman.<quoted text>
Cain was a promoter, not really possessing great business or management skills. A very shallow candidate.
Which was a ridiculous thing to say in itself.
So I just pointed out the traction Cain was getting among Republicans.
Dr. Condoleeza Rice would be a formidable candidate if she were to ever run. She's covers being black and being a woman.
Which would be the sweetest poetic justice of all.
I don't think Lily and a lot of other liberals even realize how many black Republicans are out there and how many more are going to begin speaking out. An unprecedented 30 black Republicans ran for office in 2010. Pretty sure that number is going to keep growing.
