Herman Cain grew up in Atlanta, Georgia with loving parents and little else. His father worked three jobs—as a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur—and his mother was a domestic worker. Even though these jobs required hard work and little glamour, his parents knew this life was better than the dirt farms upon which they grew up. They also knew that this hard work was the key to achieving their American Dreams.

Herman’s parents had two dreams. First, they wanted to own their own house. Secondly, they wanted both of their children to graduate from college. During the segregation era in the Deep South, these aspirations might have seemed lofty, but they knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and faith in the greatest country on the Earth, they could achieve.

The first dream was realized in a modest brick house on Albert Street in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of saving from his many jobs, Herman’s father surprised the whole family, even his wife, by purchasing a home for their family. The second dream was realized when Herman graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in mathematics in 1967. His brother, Thurman, would go on to graduate from Morris Brown College.

Inspired by the work ethic and character of his parents, Herman continued his education by earning his Master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University while working full-time developing fire control systems for ships and fighter planes for the Department of the Navy. Though Herman enjoyed using his talents as a civilian employee for the Navy, he gravitated towards the culture of business.



Herman returned to his home of Atlanta to begin working as a computer systems analyst for the Coca-Cola Company. After considerable success at Coca-Cola, he moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period of time, Herman rose to position of Vice President. Although the comforts of a corner office on the 31st floor of a majestic corporate building seemed satisfying, Herman knew that he needed a challenge.

He became the regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King division. This meant starting from the “ground up,” dodging grease fires and broiling hamburgers. Herman was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 of their restaurants. Within three years, it became the best performing region in the company.

Energized by overcoming the many obstacles of his job at Burger King, Herman took on the biggest challenge of his career. He accepted the call to become the President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and he led his management team to a buyout of the company.

His professional successes garnered the respect and admiration of industry peers who named him the President of the National Restaurant Association. Under Herman’s administration, the group grew significantly and began to lobby for the interests of America’s restaurateurs and small business owners.

In 1994, as head of the National Restaurant Association, he had the opportunity to speak with President Clinton during a nationally televised town hall meeting. Here, Herman challenged the President regarding the impact on businesses if his health care overhaul proposal were passed. President Clinton attempted to assure him and the millions of viewers watching at home that his legislation would not harm American business owners and their employees.

Herman was skeptical. “Quite honestly Mr. President, your calculations are incorrect,” he said. “In the competitive marketplace, it simply doesn’t work that way.” His words echoed across America, and Newsweek named Herman Cain the primary saboteur of Hillarycare.

Through these and other appearances on behalf of the National Restaurant Association, Herman began working with business leaders across all sectors of the American economy. This led to his acceptance of a position on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and he was subsequently elected their chairman. In this role, he analyzed economic conditions in the region and notified the Federal Reserve of how their policies should respond.

After coming in an impressive 2nd in his 2004 bid for the United States Senate in Georgia, Herman soon became the host of his own radio talk show, “The Herman Cain Show,” on Atlanta’s WSB 750 AM/ 95.5 FM.

Today, as a former Republican candidate for the Presidency, and as the CEO of the newly formed Cain’s Solutions Revolution, he is still a very active and outspoken voice for conservative issues. He serves as a regular contributor on several broadcast networks and as a keynote speaker at conferences and events around the nation. On January 21, 2013, Mr. Cain will embark on the next phase of his life’s journey as he takes over for nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Neal Boortz, upon his retirement. This new direction, along with the upcoming debut of the new CainTV.com has prompted Herman to establish the all-new “Cain Media Division” of THE New Voice, Inc. which is sure to provide yet another set of twists and turns to an already colorful career.

Despite the many professional commitments of his life, Herman continues to enjoy most the time spent with family and friends. As his children got married and had their own children, he knew that he had an extraordinary obligation to do what he could to make this a safe and prosperous nation for them. The paramount joys in his life are his wife, Gloria, his children and his four grandchildren, the youngest of which was born on New Year’s Day 2012.

You can listen to Herman Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to Noon on News Talk WSB.

Thanks, for your comment JimmyMack. I don’t know if he’s going to run again; however if he does he needs to clear the he said she said allegations of Sharon Bialek and Ginger White first. I just emailed his staff and asked both of our questions and should get a response by next Thursday and you can call Herman yourself at 1-877-310-2100 if you like. I think it would be good for the country if a businessman or physician can be President like Herman Cain or Ben Carson instead of a MASTER POLITICIAN like President Obama.

Listen to Krista Branch sing:” We Are America”

This is his theme song with commentary in the background.

Herman may have a chance at redemption. Mark Sanford seems to be doing well with his constituents after his scandal..

Thanks PN, for your informative comment!

i think he could have got past the allegations with some time. but he showed a total lack of knowledge of world affairs. domestically he was a match up with ron paul. republicans want foreign affairs experience or at least a shown of knowledge of it. and not just a knowledge like ron paul had seen he only wants us to hide from the world. looking at herman cains past, i think he could study up on the bigger world picture and make a much better run if he decides to do it again.

Yes, gacpl he showed a total lack of knowledge for the affairs he was asked about and he needs to be better at it. He was the man on Economics and his leadership experience would have compelled him to success; however the media and Republican establishment would have none of it.

The process of demonization crosses party lines does it not? Seems that there exists a faction of right wingers out there that profess that BHO is the Anti-Christ. You can't get more demonized than that.

You are so right on that one JimmyMack, 100% correcto! I’m curious on whether Herman will make another run. I’m not predicting anything, but if he were to run and win he would be the oldest elected President in US history at 70 years old and he would be 71 on Inauguration Day. Some wisdom and vast economic experience would be an asset to the country, IMHO.

Good Post!!!!

Yes he was JimmyMack, I'm optimistic about Cains response.

Welcome back SF3, and thanks for your comments.

Herman Cain, 2016!!!!

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, Apr 07, 2013 at 12:19 PM

Not so Funk. Hillary Clinton 2016. She will win in land slide victory. I think the a republicans days are over. At least from now through 2024. Republicans are out of touch, too proud to change, too old to change, and don't want to change with today's America .

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Apr 09, 2013 at 12:50 PM

I'm not a political pundit like I've always said time and time again, but it does not take a political pundit to see whats happening. If that was the case, President Obama would have been out of office. But instead, won a larger number this time around than the first election he had won. America is changing, whether we like it or not, and I'm loving it. Soon the right wing will soon just a whisper in the wind.

Funkentelecky commented on Tuesday, Apr 09, 2013 at 18:16 PM

SF3, President Obama won a larger number of what?

Funkentelecky commented on Tuesday, Apr 09, 2013 at 18:33 PM

Chief, what I suspect is that SF3 means Electoral votes 303 but as you articulated he don’t get the process. BHO got 10 Million less votes and by the NY Times up to date count 2.8% win on the national popular vote. He also won reelection with a lesser margin of victory than GWB. See the NY Times article below:


Here are some more interesting tidbits about the election that are more accurate about America than what SF3 thinks.

Why would President Obama and Democrats tell you to don’t watch Fox news, or listen to Rush Limbaugh and that the Republicans are evil and want you to breath dirty air and drink dirty water; because if they would actually listen they would see through the lies.


Funkentelecky commented on Wednesday, Apr 10, 2013 at 05:16 AM

Yes, Chief Imagine Marco Rubio against HRC. It will be the Old Democrat that supports the failed policies of Obama,to include Obamacare driving our national debt to over 11T in 8 years #44 responsible for more debt than #1-43.Rubio, looking young, handsome, articulate, pretty like BHO 2008 :D.
