The 2012 presidential campaign of Republican candidate Herman Cain ended abruptly amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

During the course of his short-lived campaign, he became known  for some of his “Herman Cain-isms.” One was his ‘9-9-9’ phrase, used to describe his proposed budget plan.

Another memorable quote from Cain had him referring to a theoretical president in “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan.”

Recently at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, the ex-pizza magnate suggested that he might return to the campaign trail for another run in 2016.

“I don’t know what the future holds,” he told the Republican confab. “But I know who controls the future. And I trust in God.”

The prospect of Cain’s return to the national political stage got Comedy Central host Jon Stewart excited.

“I’d like for Cain to run again very much,” Stewart said on The Daily Show Tuesday.

Stewart began to recount the ways Cain contributed to the comedic elements of his show.
