Herman Cain said in an interview tonight that he saw “parallels” between his case and Clarence Thomas’s, but was quick to reject the notion that the two scenarios were identical.
“I see some parallels but there’s one big difference: I’m running for president of the United States,” Cain told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. “I believe I have people on both sides of the aisle who really do not want me to get the nomination and become president. Why? Because I am unconventional candidate and the American people are connecting with my message and they’re connecting with me. So it’s a little different in that regard.”
