*Herman Cain, a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, has thrown his hat into the ring to run for president and oppose Barack Obama in 2012. He made his official announcement Saturday at a rally in Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park.

“I came here to declare my candidacy for the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America, this moment,” Cain said. “And, just to be clear, just to be clear, in case you accidentally listen to a skeptic out there, let me say it again: I’m running for President of the United States and I’m not running for second. I’m not running for second.”

“Now, let me tell you, because I’ve had reporters ask me sometimes, ‘well, are you running just to get attention and maybe come in second or maybe to get a cabinet position?’ I said you don’t know very much about me,” Cain said. “I don’t run for second. I’m running to be number one.”
