Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised businessman and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain but also called him the “flavor of the week” during an her appearance on Fox News’ “On The Record” with Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night.
“Because Herb Cain is the one up there who doesn’t look like he’s part of that permanent political class,” the former governor continued, fumbling on the candidate’s first name. “He came from a working class family. He’s had to make it on his own all these years. We respect that.”
The former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Cain has managed to defy expectations in his run for the Republican presidential nominee, even notching a surprise win over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the Florida straw poll last Saturday.
“I’m going to keep repeating though, Greta, through my process of decision-making with my family and with my close friends as to whether I should throw my name in the hat for the GOP nomination for 2012: Is a title worth it?” she said, “Does a title shackle a person? Are they — someone like me, maverick, you know, I do go rogue, and I call it like I see it, and I don’t mind stirring it up…. is a title and is a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out there, out of the box, not allowing handlers to shape me?”
