SecDef Herman Cain?

(CNN) – He's out of the race to be the Republican presidential candidate, so Herman Cain is on the hunt for a new job. His dream job? Secretary of Defense. That's what he told ABC News' Barbara Walters in an interview that aired Wednesday night.

Cain said he was "totally hypothetically" interested in the job.

    The REAL question is:

    Why would Obama EVER ask this nut to be his SecDef?

    Since he has trouble understanding "no" and "stop", my guess is he won't be asked.

    This entire item is proof of CNN's abdication of its proper role as a media reporter. This week Congress is likely to pass the un-American United Police States defense bill that permits US citizens to be detained indefinitely. Congress is about to kill the millionaire's surtax that two thirds of Americans, and even a majority of the 1%ers support. This means a small fraction of our hidden elite is running the show for their benefit. Whatever happened to investigative journalism?

    This entire item is proof of how our so-called "liberal" media has sold our America and failed to fulfill its proper role as a media reporter.

    Great. He can't pronounce corpsman and doesn't know how many states we have-and he wants to be Secretary of Defense? That's a good one.

    Come on, man. You brought Greece and "a few dinky little countries" into the conversation. Your own joke is on you.

    a great idea Herm. When you travel to Uz becky becky stan, you can personally deliver the large pepperoni pie that they ordered. But since you don't know their leaders name, don't expect to much of a tip
