It is truly unfortunate that many voters may not know the real Herman Cain. He is a regional phenom, inspiration, rock star in the Southeast. For a long time. His passion, class and energy are unquestioned by the thousands of listeners in Georgia who have followed him on his radio program on WSB through the years. For us, he is a known quantity. Solid. Selfless. Intelligent. Courageous. Principled. It is difficult for that legacy to pierce the national feeding frenzy that has been unleashed in recent days. Amazingly, if you look at recent poll results, it appears that many voters have been able see beyond this choreographed deception and embrace his sincerity, integrity and statesmanship.
