To Bury Caesar

Okay, be honest: Would you really have wanted the leader of the free world to have running a pizzeria on his resume? "I'd like peace in the Middle East, a more understandable tax code, and can I get Crazy Bread with that?" Herman Cain didn't just run a pizzeria. He was Chief Executive Officer of Godfather's Pizza, the fifth largest pizza chain in the United States. While he has worked in and around politics for more than twenty years, he has never held public office. But it's really been the private offices that have been the issue for Mister Cain of late.
Like so many prominent leaders from John Edwards to Ashton Kutcher, Herman Cain had a problem with fidelity. The list goes on and on, including John F. Kennedy and Franklin Roosevelt. Even Eisenhower had his indiscretions. These were powerful men, leaders. They have been elevated to that pinnacle of achievement wherein their likenesses appear on our coins, with the exception of Edwards and Kutcher. What I'm suggesting is that a lot of men who achieve lofty status seem to forget the lessons they learned about propriety in lieu of money, fame or power. Are you listening Newt?
And so we close the book on Herman Cain, the once and future second African American President of the United States. "Before you get discouraged, today I want to describe Plan B. . . . I am not going away. I will continue to be a voice for the people." That voice can be found on the Internet, the invention of another man who "drifted away" from his spousal commitment, Al Gore. The web site where multimillionaire and restaurant industry lobbyist Herman Cain will be holding forth can be found at TheCainSolutions.com.
