Presidential candidate Herman Cain plugs an inspirational quote in his closing speech.... from Pokemon: The Movie 2000.
From New York Magazine comes this curious question: did Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain quote Pokemon at the end of last night's debate?
Cain's remarks came during his closing statement, when he said, ""A poet once said, 'life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line."
The 'poet' in question is actually Donna Summer, who wrote the song "The Power of One." That song, as it happens, was written for Pokemon: The Movie 2000
Cain has quoted the lyrics before, attributing them to the "closing song to the 2000 Olympics" (it wasn't). For what it's worth, remixed versions of "The Power of One" were also popular at clubs, but it's hard to imagine that 65 year old Cain on the clubbing circuit.
Maybe he just wants to be the very best, like no one ever was?
