I AM a fan of Mr. Cain and as a replacement for Neal Boortz, he sucks.
Herman Cain was never, ever, ever meant to host a radio talk show. It's painful to listen to him, IMO.
I am generally not a fan of any politician being a pundit, whether conservative or liberal. Who pays attention to pundit Palin, anymore? Cain is not able, either. They’re just part of the babble, now.
Most politicians are not pithy enough to be good television analysts. They are used to speaking for ten or fifteen minutes, not fifteen seconds. Politicians don’t have the time or inclination to regularly write and think about the issues. They are doers, not philosophers.
Moreover, their punditry is usually too cautious. Politicians are always tempted to return to the profession that made them famous. In the back of their minds, they don’t to offend anybody in the audience or leave a gaffe trail that future opponents might seize upon.
