Cain in the spotlight

October 18, 2011

The spotlight burns a lot brighter when you’re the one leading the field (or tied for the lead).

Just ask Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.

The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO has been under increasing scrutiny since his rise to the top of the polls.

Analysts and pundits have been analyzing his “9-9-9″ tax plan and he’s gotten the “Saturday Night Live” treatment.

His recent proposal to use an electrified fence to fortify the border against illegal immigrants was a hot topic on cable news.

And then there’s┬ávideo of this musical performance Cain gave when he was head of the pizza chain.
