newt is smart, has some good ideas, but.....he's been on the wrong side of some stuff that made it seem that he stuck his finger in the wind, or was just uninformed.
i can't get past all the infidelity. everybody makes mistakes and i don't hold that against a person, but when they are repeatedly untrustworthy in their personal life, it makes all of their life suspect.
a good leader does not need to know everything. a good leader needs to know what they don't know and make sure they hire the best people to fill in those knowledge gaps. this is where i think Cain has a distinct advantage over others. because he has run companies, he knows how to do this. because he is not a political animal, he doesn't feel the need to make political picks (i hope). if he's not prez, i hope he gets a high cabinet position because i think he'd be an asset.
