How good is he as a politician? He and his master-pollsters have decided that the key part of Cain's tax plan is it's simplicity...and he knows that there's huge resistance to Cain's sales tax component. So...Perry's pushing a flat tax now. With approval from Steve Forbes.
I don't like watching the weekly numbers...but so far Cain's only position is his 999, and Perry's one-upped it. Cain appears more likeable. And I like folks with quantitative backgrounds.
I am still sticking with Perry as the anti-Romney candidate, and therefore the Republican Party candidate & next president.
