Cain warmly embraced at conservative forum despite low poll numbers

Minneapolis (CNN) - If applause, enthusiasm and sustained ovations are any indication, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is a strong favorite of committed conservatives - boding well for his campaign despite a low, but rising, standing in several polls.

Those gathered at the final session on the final day of the RightOnline conference on Saturday evening in Minnesota warmly welcomed the former Godfather's Pizza CEO, then repeatedly interrupted his speech with adoring applause.

    Herman Cain said that he would post a sign stating that Muslims "need not apply" for a position in his administration. I guess he forgot that he was Black. Cain forgot that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and a host of Catholics fought for civil rights that allowed minorities like Cain himself to able to apply for the right to run for the job a s President of the United States. Cain forgot that U.S. Commander-in-Chief use to be a job Blacks could not apply for.

    I guess Herman Cain forgot from whence he came.

    I like Herman Cain. The more I listen to him, the more I think that he would make a great president. He stands up for what he believes in and doesn't cave to public opinion that goes against those beliefs. He appears to be a good, principled man.
