Romney Jabs Cain

Mitt Romney took what was perhaps his first jab at Herman Cain yesterday, remarking that his rival probably wished he had some political experience.

“I was able to find ways to use my skills in a public sector setting, probably something — if I were Herman — I’d say I wish I had that too because you don’t want to necessarily learn that for the first time as the president of the United States,” Romney said while campaigning in New Hampshire, according to ABC News.

But he also touted his and Cain’s shared business experience. And speaking about himself and Cain, Romney went so far as to say, “Vote for either one of us and you’ll be fine.”
