Tell Casper his suggestion of Herman Cain must have caught on.....yeah

This past week, I attended the National Republican Women Federated Board of Directors Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo.  All of the candidates who are running for President were invited to attend and speak....the one I was most impressed with was....Herman Cain.  He spoke for over 30 minutes and to say that he "rocked the room" is putting it mildly. I lost count of the times we gave him standing applause. Not because he is a remarkable speaker, but because he was answering all of our concerns with thorough, comprehenive answers.


After having the opportunity of personally meeting Mr. Cain and hear him speak, I know who I will be voting for Nov. 2012! I have for some time been impressed with him but never before had the opportunity to hear more than just sound bites or his responses at those "debates".  This was an eye opener. The results of our straw poll taken after hearing the candidates ended with Herman Cain with over 48% of the total vote.


Herman Cain is not a career politician (in fact he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy.


Here’s his bio:
  • Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.
  • Master’s degree in Computer Science.
  • Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).
  • Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.
  • VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).


All achieved all of this before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!Next on to:
  • Business Manager. He took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.
  • Godfather’s Pizza CEO. He was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.
  • In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.
  • He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.


Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!
  • He became Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.
  • Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the Chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.


After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!
  • Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.
  • Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).


He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.
I'm looking forward to January 2013 when he takes his place in the Oval Office!
