Liz Cheney: Cain the Idea Man

Voters are hungry for ideas, say Liz Cheney, that's why they're excited by Herman Cain. But she doesn't really have an answer as to why Republicans aren't excited by Mitt Romney.


I think Herman's appeal is that he doesn't talk like a politician and has a positive, can-do attitude. There's something about the modern politician's need to speak only in consultant honed sentences that makes them seem smaller than the office. Explains Christie's power as well.
