(Editor’s Note: Watch Brody drink the Kool Aid of that recent feel-good and very staged Lincoln-Douglass style debate between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich recently. Someone put some extra sugar in his glass. Brody pretty much describes this as something like a job interview where Gingrich does a light vetting of Cain as a potential running mate. But, can the crystal ball really see that? Pre-scandal, Cain could have been someone’s running mate, but once the dust on his dismal handling of the allegations settles, not sure anyone will want to take him on as a liability into a general election.)
Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich were on stage together in what was billed as a classic Lincoln-Douglas style debate. As I sat and watched the entire event, I came away with one vivid impression: Did I just finish watching the Republican presidential ticket in 2012? Cain/Gingrich? Don’t laugh. It could happen. Romney has a ceiling of support and Rick Perry seems stuck in neutral.
Herman Cain’s poll numbers continue to impress and like Ronald Reagan, he seems to have a Teflon quality to him. Gingrich is steadily rising in the polls due to the fact that voters are starting to realize that this guy is REALLY smart and is an idea factory. Could this be a ticket that provides both style and substance?
First of all, let’s start with this: They both respect each other and genuinely have a heartfelt friendship.
