Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is still around as a Fox News contributor and purveyor of his online news channel CainTV. Otherwise, he's kind of fallen from the public's conscious.
On Monday, however, Cain emerged in Washington, D.C., after a two-day meeting at a hotel with a few other black conservatives...
The Washington Post describes his reception:
In attendance: three cameramen and three reporters, including one from the conservative publication NewsMax and another from CNN who is visibly disappointed when told that [Dr. Ben] Carson had skipped the Monday event.
Cain told reporters his meeting was held as a type of support group for blacks in the conservative movement. It also served a brainstorm session for solutions to national problems.
