The Cain Train Comes To A Screeching Halt

The news coming out of the Herman Cain camp is that the one-time Republican front runner has decided to “suspend” his campaign.  For all intents and purposes, suspending your campaign is the same as ending your campaign.  Stick a fork in him.  Herman Cain is done!

Few could have probably predicted this a couple of months ago when Cain shot to the lead in polls for the Republican nomination but his campaign quickly derailed under the weight of allegations of sexual misconduct and carrying on a 13-year marital affair.

Current front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney quickly set up meetings with Cain in order to try to woo support.  Cain ultimately announced that he was endorsing Gingrich but it remains to be seen if Cain supporters will back Gingrich as well.

Where Herman Cain the politician goes from here remains unclear.  I think history will ultimately recognize Cain as a successful business person but also someone who wasn’t quite cut out for the bright lights of politics.  Cain’s candidacy started out promisingly enough but ultimately got derailed because he wasn’t able to keep his hands to himself!

What say you?  Are you disappointed that Herman Cain dropped out of the race or do you think it was his time to go?  Feel free to comment below.

    Am glad he is out, not only because of his sexual conducts, but also because of his ultra-conservative agendas. I was surprised that he would have still been a front runner had it not been for his affairs, it didn’t seem republicans were concerned about his policies, which were too conservative and some too unrealistic, including his proposed tax code. I didn’t believe he was ready to lead this country. I agree with you that he would be remembered as a good business person with a dirty background like most of the business persons of his type that we hear about from main street to wall street.

    I would be okay with Mitt Romney though; he will be a good challenger of Obama. 🙂 Am not sure of the other candidates, but if they win the nomination, good for the Obama camp, I guess.

    Great article! 🙂
