Stewart Talks With Al Sharpton About Possible Herman Cain v. Obama Election (VIDEO)

Al Sharpton, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'While talking with Rev. Al Sharpton about the current political landscape on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart marveled at the possibility of Herman Cain winning the Republican nomination, and how significant that might be. Cain is the current Republican front-runner.

"The idea of a possible presidential race -- two African Americans squaring off against each other -- has to feel like an achievement for people who worked in the civil rights movement," Stewart said.

Sharpton agreed with that sentiment, but said that it would be indicative of something perhaps even more important to the political conversation about black voters supporting Obama simply because he was black.

"Cain is Southern black -- no inter-racial parents -- and I wouldn't support Cain if he was running against a white guy," Sharpton declared.

Ah, good Ol' Al Sharpton, one of the best double speakers in all of the public eye, getting him riled up about anything must be similar to grabbing your dog's leash and excitedly shaking it in front of him while saying, "Who wants to go for a walk?"

Cain doesn't fit into Al's keep the minority "needy" and thus wanting to vote for those that want to give rather than help class... Al is a shameful hustler and why anyone give him the time of day befuddles logic.
