Herman Cain is often rated by observers as not being very likely to get elected president — but if he is, he promises to start cutting from day one, starting with fewer inaugural balls and other formal presidential events.
The Daily Caller reports on Cain’s upcoming campaign book, “This Is Herman Cain,” due out October 4:
The long-shot candidate, who has earned more attention recently by winning the Florida Straw Poll over the weekend, also promises to “sharply decrease the number of inaugural night balls.”
“I will reduce the number of protocol-oriented events that presidents are seemingly required to attend,” he writes. “At a time of deepening national crisis, I simply cannot afford to allocate valuable time to things that do not advance solutions to this nation’s problems.”
Does this mean that even though Cain is a dedicated Republican, he is also non-partysan?
