Herman Cain says he might run for president again

    By Aaron Blake

NEW ORLEANS -- Herman Cain, who ended his 2012 presidential campaign amid allegations of multiple affairs, said Saturday that he might run for president again in 2016.

Cain, in a speech at the Republican Leadership Conference here, brought up the prospect of another run toward the end of his speech. He then suggested he would do it if he were called by God.

“I do not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future," the Georgia businessman said. "And I trust in God.”

Cain, 68, was a brief front-runner for the GOP nomination in 2011 but dropped out, before any actual votes were cast, in early December of that year.

Cain got a rise out of the crowd when he taunted the media and liberals whom he blamed for his ouster.

"The liberals thought that they had shut me up," Cain said as the crowd rose to its feet. "I'm back!"

Interestingly, Cain's performance was a virtual repeat of his speech before the same crowd four years ago, when he teased his 2012 presidential run -- the "dark horse" -- before walking off stage.

Running low on funds, Herb?

Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

I don't think that means he's running. I think the Post is speculating here. Most Christians, including myself, hold this exact same view on the world, and we're not running for office any time soon.

Cain is not Harold Stassen.
