No one in America was probably more devastated over Herman Cain’s withdrawal from the presidential race than Stephen Colbert, who begged him to re-consider his decision Tuesday night

“That is a shame, he touched so many people,” Colbert subtly said. “Now Mr. Cain, I know you’ve dropped out, but please, please re-consider.”I know you’ve said ‘No.’ But rumor has it that hasn’t stopped you before.”
