In my interview with Herman Cain today, he brushed off those who thought he couldn’t win a general election:
“They are saying that I can’t win a general election based upon what I call the traditional political model,” he says. “You’re going to have to throw out traditional politics because the political landscape is very different than it was before.

“To be perfectly honest with you, my toughest challenge is winning the primary, not winning the general election,” he adds.
Cain acknowledges he’d consider being vice president if asked — and if he likes the GOP nominee.
