The Power of Herman Cain

When the power went out, Cain reached for the highest of powers, the One who illuminates every church and every stage and everyone who cries out to Him. – Robin of Berkeley at American Thinker

He had just started delivering his talk when the generator fueling his mike failed.

After a few awkward moments, Cain did the most amazing thing, something perhaps unique in the annals of politics: he started singing — and an apt song, “The Impossible Dream.”  Perhaps inspired by the power of music, Cain even ended his appearance with a hymn about God’s infinite grace and forgiveness called “He Looked Beyond My Faults.”

One could hardly imagine Obama handling the situation so seamlessly and graciously.  When his teleprompter fails, Obama is usually rendered speechless or tongue-tied.  My guess is that Obama also becomes irritated at the people running the show.

Yet Cain didn’t flinch or get frustrated or angry.  He did what my church friends did…he invoked music and joy and, even more importantly, God, the only true force that unites.  Not surprisingly, the mostly white audience was dazzled.
