Herman Cain expected to launch White House bid tomorrow at Centennial Olympic Park

Herman Cain, the former pizza company CEO turned talk radio host who's spent months criss-crossing the country to gauge interest in a possible White House bid, is expected to officially kick off his presidential campaign tomorrow in downtown Atlanta. (Sure, we hedge a bit by saying "expected," but it's safe to say that's what will happen. Politicos normally don't urge the public to attend events just to say they've "decided to spend time with their family.")

Most political observers — the ones Newt Gingrich so often slashes with his sword of sweet, sweet, idealism — say the odds are against Cain to even win the GOP nomination. But that doesn't mean he won't be a factor in the race. The Georgia native's found strong support from tea party groups and enjoys some name recognition from his radio-show days railing against the federal healthcare reform package and other things Obama.

The fun kicks off in Centennial Olympic Park at noon and lasts until 3 p.m. Follow the people holding signs and grumbling about the federal deficit and you won't miss the party.
