Cain: I'll Be Any GOP's VP, Except Perry

By Ted Goldenberg   |   Friday, 07 Oct 2011 12:18 PM

Republican presidential candidate and businessman Herman Cain says he is open to joining a GOP ticket as vice president, but not if the other name on that ticket is Rick Perry.

Cain told the National Journal, “Based upon Governor Perry’s position on some issues, I would not be comfortable being his vice presidential nominee.”

Those issues include Perry’s position on immigration and his support to allow children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition rates.

This week, Cain, who is currently one of the frontrunners in the latest round of polls, spoke out against a racial slur painted on a stone outside a hunting lodge the governor used to frequent.

Of course, the vice presidency is not the prize Cain is after.

“I am running to be president. I hope to be the presidential nominee. I hope to be offering the vice presidency to somebody as the nominee, not having it offered,” Cain said.
