Cain to make campaign announcement Saturday

(CNN) - Businessman Herman Cain said Friday he would make an announcement and "clarify exactly what the next steps are" regarding the future of his campaign Saturday.

He is scheduled to host a rally to mark the opening of campaign headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, one day after meeting his wife for the first time face-to-face after allegations he carried on a 13-year extramarital affair were made public Monday.

    Instead of clarifying exactly what his previous steps were....

    Will Herb have to pay back the Kochs for his campaign contributions? Chuckie and Davie now need more money to help Mittens fight Darth Newt.

    Who cares – he's ignorant of world affairs, but for extramarital affairs he's right down there in the mud with Newt.

    It's wrong to spend so much time on this man. What about our troops in Afghanistan whose supply lines have been cut off because of the recent serious problems we are having with Pakistan? No wonder people complain about the media; the media have forgotten journalism ethics and their responsibility as journalists–not as entertainers!!!!

    If Mr. Cain could not tell his wife about his friendship with Ms. White then he needs to talk with his wife. Mrs. Cain has displayed tremendous grace under pressure in spite of the what the pundits and comedians say. She should have our support no matter what Mr. Cain decided to do.

    Hopefully it'll be an 'I quit' rally.

    "I helped someone out through these troubled economic times." Has this country been stuck in a 13 year recession?

    Ginger White's friends and family knew of their affair for years, and she only broke the story because a news channel was going to. Mrs. Cain was happy being married to a man who was never home, who slept around; she didn't have the self respect to leave him and be on her own. Herman Cain is a creep.

    Hmmmm. Herman Cain is on video saying, "If you don't have a job, if you're not rich, that's your fault!" Now he is Mr. Softy, helping everybody.

    I don't see why Mr. Cain would. Well, at least not until Obama pays back George Soros for his campaign contributions.

    I would say Mrs. Cain showed tremendous grace under pressure if she was a single parent trying to make ends meet. Deciding to remain married to a man who is never home who sleeps around to get your bills paid is not grace. It's lazy.

    He's not talking directly to his wife, he's talking to her through a divorce lawyer!

    @ Dana-Right on !!!
    It just goes to show what people feel is important news in this country.
    BTW-If I were Mrs. Cain, that man would have had a frying pan alongside his head when he came home to talk to me yesterday/today. Oh, I forgot ! He has Secret Service protection. Is that to protect him from all of these women out to get him ?

    It never ceases to amaze me that these egocentric idiots are convinced that they are above scrutiny. It never seems to occur to them that this stuff WILL come out, it always does these days.

    Bye, bye Mr. Cain, you are a clown and a fool.

    I agree with Connie. His wife obviously didn't care about any of this. He is a man who apparently was rarely home and she got to enjoy all of the money. They just need to go away.

    Shame on you for writing such negative things about Mrs. Cain. Maybe you should show some respect for the woman and apparent victim by not characterizing her as a fool. You really have no clue about the details of their marriage.

    Stay, go, it really doesn't matter. This cretin never had a serious shot at the presidency. Finally he can bring his extended book tour to an end. Too bad he sacrificed his wifes pride in the process. Nice goin' Herm.

    What is up with the bloodshot eyes?
    Has he been drinking or crying?

    Put yourself and us out of misery and just quit tomorrow. It will probably be the FIRST honorable thing you've ever done.
    Boy, we did'nt think this guy was right for this job, but we had no idea how completely WRONG he was for it.

    From the start I could see crystal clear for #1, he was not meeting the criteral for wars, we would be doomed for ever, #2, he had insufficient qualifications as a president. Lacks knowledge of presidental standards, meets the standards of a sort of Poppa Johns pizzer CEO but not of a United STates President. Sorry, I wish I could see only pass him as a pizza CEO but no one once of a president. It was nice while the dreamed last a month or so.
    As for Ginger, yes, many people knew of them and that closeness, he compensated her for her company and friendship and understanding, yes, she is an attractive woman, and intelligent and NO she is NOT STUPID.

    He is the one appearing stupid for wanting to have his cake and eat it too. Did he not realize about Karma? Sooner or later it would bite him back in the future. His wife finally needs to wake up to the roses and submit to herself her husband is a LIER. IF YOUR A LIER TO YOUR WIFE, HE WOULD BE A LIER TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE PEOPLE! SEE YA AT THE CORNER PIZZERA.
