Candidate for the Republican presidential nomination Herman Cain said at tonight’s debate that he would not be comfortable with Muslims in his administration. He clarified by saying he would not be comfortable with those want to harm the United States. He recently said on CNN that he would ask Muslims certain questions and he wouldn’t have to question Christians and Jews.
