Nine Things We Learned from Herman Cain

By Ed Parry, Writer/Producer, CNN Newsroom

Herman Cain – he’s not seeking votes anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped campaigning.

The former GOP presidential front-runner, Mr. 999, the guy who gave the tea party movement's response to the State of the Union address, and current BFF of Stephen Colbert paid a visit to Kyra Phillips in CNN’s Studio 7 Thursday.

In honor of his 999 plan, here are nine things we learned about Citizen (rather than candidate) Cain:

1) On his relationship with Stephen Colbert:
Cain says Colbert (and Jon Stewart) reach young voters – and that’s who Cain says he wants to inspire. Doesn’t he worry that Colbert is using him as a punchline? Not really. “It’s a mutual use.”

2) On GOP nastiness:
The divisive attacks discourage people from wanting to be part of the process.

3) On Romney:
He could beat President Obama. But he needs to be more specific with his plans for the economy and job creation. His current plan “isn’t cutting it.”

4) On Newt:
He can be bold. He’s been accused of being extreme. But he could beat Obama in November too. It all depends on how he hones his message before the general election

5) On why he likes Newt:
Because even though he’s a career politician, “he got out of politics for a while so his head could clear. That’s a positive.”

6) On why he’s not endorsing anyone:
Because solutions are more important than a person he endorses.

7) On the president’s State of the Union address:
Small ideas. Stop picking winners and losers. Let the marketplace do that.

8) On the tax code:
Toss it. Re-draw it. Please. Now. It will solve so many other problems.

9) On tonight’s GOP debate in Jacksonville:
Specifics please, on how to grow the economy, create jobs, inspire hiring, and get government out of the way. Have a great day.
