When Herman Cain announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, many analysts didn't anticipate his campaign would gain the momentum. The former CEO of Godfather's Pizza has come a long way from August, when he had the support of just 5 percent of Republican primary voters. Today, Cain enjoys the support of 27 percent of Republicans, and discussion of his "999" tax plan dominated the last GOP debate.

But what about Herman Cain the boss and CEO? Spencer Wiggins, a former executive at Godfather's Pizza and Burger King who worked under Herman Cain, talks about what it was like to work for his old boss.

So is Mr. Wiggins afraid of Cain or hoping for a cabinet position? I would lean toward fear because Cain looks scary. Old Testament-scary. Seriously, his name is "Cain".

Reading between the lines,,, te Peter Principle comes to mind. In the land of the Fast Food,,, the Leveragec Buyout Man is King. He closed the Salad Bar....and at least 350 stores closed and their assets sold.
