He's out of the race to be the Republican presidential candidate, so Herman Cain is on the hunt for a new job. His dream job? Secretary of Defense. That's what he told ABC News' Barbara Walters in an interview that aired Wednesday night.
Cain said he was "totally hypothetically" interested in the job.
"If I could influence rebuilding our military the way it should be, that would be a task I would consider undertaking," Cain said in the interview.
The answer might seem surprising given Cain's proud declaration that he lacked a full grasp on international matters. It certainly seemed to take Walters by surprise.
"What?," she spat out. "Why Department of Defense?"
She then asked him about his lack of familiarity with countries around the world.
"I have been doing my homework ever since that difficulty," he explained.
