Herman Cain‘s wife Gloria Cain has kept out of the spotlight so far. Unlike the spouses of the other Republican presidential candidates, she has a very low public profile. But all that’s about to change, because Herman and Gloria Cain are reportedly planning to sit down for an interview that will shed some light on their long marriage.
The timing, for Herman Cain, could not be better. He is mired in unproven allegations from many years ago. By bringing Gloria Cain to the fore, he might be hoping to remind voters that he is, above all, a family man. It’s a move that could save his campaign. Spouses shouldn’t matter so much in the political world, but they do.
Little is known about Gloria Cain, other than that she has a life beyond her husband’s political career. But she has generally come across extremely positively in her few public appearances, and it’s not too much of a stretch to see that she could be a genuine asset to the Cain campaign over the coming months. If, that is, her arrival in the spotlight is more than just a cameo.
