Republican presidential primary candidate Herman Cain this week said that Republican front-runner Mitt Romney cannot win the party's presidential nomination next year, because of his religion.
Cain believes that Romney's Mormon religion is an obstacle too big to overcome the South, which he claims is the most solid Republican region in the nation. In fact, Cain said that many traditionalist Christians in the South do not even consider the Mormon church to be a branch of Christianity.
These are quite powerful assertions by Cain -- assertions that he never should have made regarding Romney's political potential as well as his religion. The fact is that Cain crossed the line by debasing Romney's chances of winning the Republican Party's nomination for President, in addition to insulting Romney's Mormon religion.
If he is serious about being nominated for President by the Republican Party, it would behoove Cain to concentrate on his own candidacy -- instead of belittling other candidates or their religion -- in order to convey to the American people how he would make our great nation even greater if he were elected President.
