Five Strategies to Keep Herman Cain on Top

Herman Cain is the undisputed GOP frontrunner, but he’ll have to get his act together fast to keep the top spot. The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack says Cain actually has a chance at the nomination, but points out that Cain's support "remains very fluid...more than two-thirds said they might end up voting for someone else." That leaves Cain with some major hurdles on the way to the nomination: he has to win Iowa, which he has neglected. He has to be open to modifying his “9-9-9” tax plan, which his opponents will attack for its apparent tax increases. He needs a foreign policy. And most of all, he has to avoid the red-meat rhetoric that has made him look unpresidential in the past.
