An Odd Footnote to History

GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain will have a press conference today where it is widely expected that he will drop out of the 2012 Presidential race. Even if he doesn't choose to do this, the decision is actually irrelevant. The recent revelation of Cain having an extramarital affair for 13 years is too damaging to his chances, and his window of opportunity was already closing even before this news because of previous sexual harassment allegations.

Herman Cain is on his way to becoming an odd footnote in American history. A GOP contender who was at one point #1 in many polls, but was derailed because of issues that had nothing to do with politics.

The infamous ad with his campaign manager smoking a cigarette is burned into many peoples memories.

And this wasn't even the worst ad Herman Cain came out with.

If you put out piffle like this ad, you won't last long in a Presidential race.
