Wow factor

As just reported by Fox, Heman Cain won the Florida straw poll. By a fairly large amount: Cain 37%; Perry 15%; Romney 14%.

Florida governor Rick Scott, appearing on Fox & Friends this a.m., claimed that whoever wins the straw poll wins the nomination.

While that remains to be seen, today’s result may be a game-changer in the GOP race. It’s also a useful corrective to recall that at this time in the 2008 primary race, the front-runners were Fred Thompson and Rudy Guiliani. And that Romney and Ron Paul came in 1-2 respectively in the 2007 Florida straw poll.

Still, wow. Herman Cain, a breath of fresh air.
