Herman Cain vs. Bill Clinton

I mentioned Herman Cain's 1994 town hall tete-a-tete with Bill Clinton when Cain entered the presidential race last week; it seemed strange that the video was not on Cain's launch site. Happily, a YouTube user has found the video and put it online.

In the 17 years since then, Cain hasn't aged much, and he's become a much better political speaker. But this is a nice little clip to have around. (For comparison: Some current Cain.)
