Final Note

And Herman Cain endorses…

Kai Ryssdal Jan 19, 2012

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.
