Richard Nixon one, Herman Cain zero. Herman Cain said yesterday that the 88 year-old Henry Kissinger has declined an offer to serve as Secretary of State in his putative administration.
“Dr. Kissinger turned my offer down to be Secretary of State,” said Cain when asked who he might put in his administration. “He said he’s perfectly happy doing what he’s doing,” Cain added. Cain revealed the offer in a video interview — yeah, that one — with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board.
Cain also mentioned Jim DeMint, Paul Ryan, KT McFarland, John Bolton, and John Chain as potential administration-members, though he didn’t say whether he’d made them job offers. Also, no word yet on whether Spiro Agnew will agree to be Cain’s running mate.
