The Cain marriage
(Sorry about the bad typos in this entry as originally posted; one should never post a blog entry just as one is heading out the door.)
As Cain “suspends” his presidential campaign today, the Daily Beast has a not complimentary look at the Cain marriage. It seems that Gloria and Herman Cain have been leading largely separate lives for many years, she’s not into his Big Man schtick, she’s accepted without liking it his extramarital relationships, and when he’s home he’s in his own world. Two interviewees say what I’ve felt all along and wrote the other day: he was running for president for the fun of it, for the expression and fulfillment of his ego, and then to his astonishment and the further expansion of his ego he found himself being taken seriously.
And, by the way, I think exactly the same is true of Gingrich.
One of my typos was: “And, by the way, I think exactly is be true of Gingrich.”Paul K. writes:
You wrote, “And, by the way, I think exactly the same is true of Gingrich.”
