Herman Cain was the highlight. His speech at TeaCon tore the roof off.
Mr. Cain had the crowd on their feet and clapping until their hands hurt.
He had everyone smiling, ear to ear, I noticed.
It reminded me of Reagan. Mr. Cain is very much a happy warrior. Voters prefer cheerfulness to anger.
He is a contender.
That means he will now be in everyone’s crosshairs.
If he can survive the gauntlet he could beat Romney, and if he can do that he will be formidable, and could beat Obama.
Not surprisingly, he won the straw poll.
(Michael Barone has a good piece about Mr. Cain.)
