Former presidential hopeful and ever cheerful “9-9-9” guy Herman Cain is not done yet.

He’s in the nation’s capitol Monday to discuss “how to collectively expose the damaging effects of the current administration on the black community, the effects of which are worse than the national negative impact of bad policy,” a source says.


Among those who will meet with Mr. King at a historic hotel a block from the White House: Dr. Benjamin Carson, talk radio host Armstrong Williams, National Black Chamber of Commerce president Harry Alford, former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell, Christian Cultural Center founder A. R. Bernard, Congress of Racial Equality spokesman Niger Innis, pro-life activist Alveda King and conservative analyst Star Parker.

There’s already been a meeting of the minds, however.

Mr. Cain and Mr. Williams was very much in evidence at a fundraiser for Dr. Carson’s “Scholars Fund” on Sunday at the Georgetown home of C. Boyden Gray.

A political cruise also looms. Mr. Cain announced Monday he’ll offer “an “exclusive one-day event” on the Freedom of the Sea Cruise when the luxury vessel docks in Key West this fall, joining an expanding cast that currently includes columnists John Fund and Deroy Murdock.
