Cain Wins Triple Nines at Debate

The simplicity of the Herman Cain 9-9-9 plan is appealing and makes the plan tangible. But it is the charm of the candidate that allows it to command the center of attention - at the expense of the other candidates for president.

Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain was the center of attention at Tuesday night’s Republican presidential debate, while Texas Gov. Rick Perry faded into the background.

Cain was asked more questions by the moderators than any of the other candidates. His "9-9-9" tax reform plan was the focus of economic discussion and while he made a few missteps, he largely held his own during the two-hour event.

Mitt solidified his frontrunner status at Tuesday night's debate, but Cain's legend, and second place status, were solidified as well.
