The US Presidential election is the biggest news item in the world as it is a contest for the most powerful seat on this globe. In the last Presidential election, history was made with the election of Barak Hussein Obama as President of USA. The fact that Obama had Muslim middle name and was a black did not deter the American people from voting for him.
Herman Cain was another 65 year old black. About 2 months back he had surged ahead of his rivals for the Presidential nomination of the Republican party. But like Humpty Dumpty, Cain had a fallas his sex escapades and adulterous life caught up with him. His ratings went down and it was realized that perhaps he was not the right candidate to oppose Obama. So Cain had no option but to but to scratch from the race.
Now that Cain is out of the race, what will be the effect ? Earlier it was thought that as he was a black he could have given Obama a run for his money. But
Obama has the advantage of sitting in the chair and as an incumbent has the edge. His nomination is clear with Joe Biden his running mate again. But the Republicans do not have a charismatic man who can take on Obama. That is a fact, Though Obama's ratings are down and many feel that he has not lived up to what he had promised, yet there is no alternative.
Thus there is every chance that Obama will romp home again. This is not because of anything great he has done during his presidency, but more by default. Thus the going of Cain has opened the doors for another term for Barak Obama. May be he will turn in a better performance in his second innings. We can only wait and watch.
