Cain “all the way up to my chin”on presidential bid

Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain is among the last speakers at today’s Tea Party Rally on the Iowa capitol’s west lawn. 

Cain talked about being diagnosed with stage four cancer in 2006 and the treatment he underwent.  “And for the last five years I have been totally cancer free,” Cain yelled, emphasizing the last three words of that sentence.  The crowd cheered.  “And you want to know why? God said, ‘Not yet, Herman.'”  God said, “Not yet. I’ve got something else for you to do.’ And it might be to become president of the United States of America — I’m just sayin’.”

Cain talked about forming an exploratory committee in January. “I’m not months away from making a final decision. I am weeks away from making a final decision. And in January, I had put my toe in the water, but I’ll just give you a little hint.  It’s now all the way up to my chin,”  Cain said.  “I’m just sayin’.”
