Picture of the Day: Herman Cain in High School and College
the Atlantic ^ | 5/20/11 | Chris Good

Posted on 05/20/2011 7:40:17 PM PDT by justsaynomore

"The latter senior-class yearbook prediction would come true: Cain went on to graduate from Morehouse College in 1967, then earn a master's degree in computer science from Purdue University while working full-time for the Navy as a mathematician and physicist, developing ballistics for fighter planes and aircraft carriers. Also, running a major national corporation like Godfather's for a decade -- the capstone to a career with other major companies -- typically qualifies as success."

Voted "Most Likely to Succeed". Love it! I bet Mr. Cain would even show his high school, college and grad school transcripts too!

Atlantic's photo of Herman Cain titled "Most likely to succeed" reminds me of this photo of Sidney Portier

What? No pics of Mr Cain dressed like a pimp, smoking a joint? Maybe they can Photoshop his head onto Obama’s body and claim that the photos are “fake, but accurate”.

You’re note he doesn’t look like Huggybear, and he’s not sporting any joints or cigarettes hanging out the mouth.

Classy and dignified. He looks like a statesman.

Cain for president.

He’s the real thing.

What was in 0bamao’s yearbooks?

Oh, right, we’re not allowed to see that.

I think the fight for the Republican nomination is going to be a bigger fight than beating Obammy will be. 2012 will be a referendum on the Obama (P)residency, and a populist Conservative like Cain stands an excellent chance if he can truly pull together a National Campaign.

I want to hear this man speak, shake his hand and get a measure of what he really stands for. If the Atlantic is snubbing Cain, even slightly, that’s a good thing in my view....

Herman Cain -

Band
Senior Honor Society
Student Council
Explorer Scouts

The making of a proper statesman and true American. I’d be surprised if he played a saxophone on some evening entertainment show.

I’d love to see Mr. Cain debate the street thug pimp. But it will never happen. The pimp would hide and mess his pants at the thought.

Mr. Cain spoke at the Villages (Florida) yesterday and he said, “America needs a leader, not a reader!” LOL

Never debate a computer science, mathematician, and physicist when all you’ve “earned” in “college” was a “degree” in being a community organizer.

You won’t win the debate.

We have now seen more school records for Cain, than we ever have of Obama’s super secret-oh so special and historical-locked away or destroyed-pure genius school records.

How fun! Thank you for sharing. American experiences that we all can relate to. So much different than a Pakistan walk-about!

Wonderful line. Cain would crush the Marxist in a debate. Cain is a great guy!

Those are great pics!

And he worked as a Mathematician, Physicist and has a master's in computer science. Later a pizza guy. Awesome!

If pizza can't get the younger vote, nothing will! Hope and change or cheese and pepperoni?

How about Cain/West? But you just know they'd find a way to call them racist!
