You can say this about Herman Cain's presidential bid: he's not going to resort to boring soundbites.
The Republican hopeful and former pizza chain CEO was interviewed by the conservative radio talk show host Neal Boortz, and was asked about what a head-to-head general election contest with President Obama might look like. “It would almost be no contest," Cain opined.
Boortz suggested that Cain would be able to talk about the black experience in America. "[Obama's] never been a part of the black experience in America," Cain said.
Cain, whose scheduler refers to him as 'Cornbread,' appeared on Neal Boortz's radio show ahead of tonight's Republican debate.
As Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has watched his campaign flag, Cain's has surged in recent weeks following a surprise victory won a straw poll in Florida. He was given a rousing ovation at the conservative Values Voters Summit last weekend. Gallup currently has him polling at 18 percent, ahead of Perry at 15 percent but behind Mitt Romney at 20 percent.
