No, and I don't mean to diminish Obama's accomplishments, but I think people were eager to dismiss Herman Cain as ignorant and underqualified despite his many accomplishments in the private sector. He was a lobbyist for three years, hardly the bulk of his professional life. He was in a position to do that work as a result of a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and achieving great success in the corporate world. I personally think that his track record made him much more qualified for the office than Obama was when he was elected. People seemed to dismiss him as a pizza flipping clown. I personally am more impressed by a lifetime of successful leadership in the private sector than Harvard law review and being elected as a legislator a couple times. I think there was an unfair prejudice against him, take for example this poll question that calls Herman Cain an "Uncle Tom." Why is he an Uncle Tom? What makes Obama Blacker than Him? It's just a bigoted, backwards way of thinking. If you don't fall in line politically, the thought police will come snatch your black card.
