Herman Cain made an interesting endorsement today. - 

This final note today, which is either the biggest copout or the smartest political move ever.

Herman Cain made his long-awaited endorsement today. And you might think -- on the day Rick Perry dropped out and backed Newt Gingrich -- that the time would be ripe for a politically opportune announcement. Cain has suggested he'd like to be Secretary of Defense, you know.

But it wasn't to be. Instead, Cain endorsed us.

The people.

Seriously.
