He was definitely one of the most memorable Republican presidential candidates. Herman Cain was in Tempe Wednesday watching the debate with ASU's Republican Club.
At one point of the primary season, Cain was the front runner. But allegations of sexual harassment by a former co-worker derailed his run for the White House.
He is now actively campaigning for Mitt Romney. Still, does he wish it were him debating President Obama?
"Not really you know, that's a lot of pressure. I didn't feel that much pressure when I was debating the other Republican nominees," said Cain. "I thought, what if I were the nominee standing there, I could feel that's more pressure cause its one on one."
"First of all I ran for president because I ran to win… And the other thing is I had a much bolder economic growth and jobs plan. President Obama would not have been able to counter my 9-9-9 plan other than with falsehoods, that's what I believe would have given me a significant advantage."
Lake: "I think in everything in life, likeability is 80 percent. I think its pretty big. Could you give Mitt Romney some tips?"
Cain: "No Kari, here's the thing. He's gotten a bad rap about likeability. I debated him, talked to him backstage, I met him when he ran for president before. He gets painted as not likeable but he is a very likeable guy. You got the pressure of the camera, lights, anyone would get tense, you have the reporters you have the reporters there with the claws out, ok so I just think that's not going to be a factor."
Lake: "Will you run for office again?"
Cain: "Based on what I know today, no. But I never say never. I never said I was going to run the first time, I had a temporary moment of insanity and then find myself running for president."
