Have you missed Herman Cain?

The one-time Republican presidential hopeful is back and on the road.

Herman Cain's presidential campaign may be no more -- but don't panic! It's not the last we've seen of him. During a Fox News interview on Wednesday night, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza announced plans to launch a bus tour to promote the "9-9-9" plan that formed the cornerstone of his short-lived campaign.

Calling it "Cain's Solutions Revolution", Cain explained that after he announced his withdrawal from the presidential race, the biggest response was from supporters urging him to keep the dream alive (much to the surprise of everyone listening). He vowed to tour the country to rally congressional support for the plan which seeks to replace the federal Tax Code with a 9 per cent corporate tax, 9 per cent personal income tax and a 9 per cent national sales tax

"You know what comes after a tea party?" he asked interviewer Sean Hannity. "A revolution. It's time for history to repeat itself." We hope that's not your own history you're referring to, Herman.
