Jon Stewart on the Loss of Herman Cain, Comedy Goldmine (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'From a comedy standpoint, it's easy to see why Jon Stewart is incredibly disappointed to see Herman Cain suspending his campaign for presidency. But up to the last minute, he remained comic gold. On 'The Daily Show' (11PM ET on Comedy Central), Stewart pulled up the video of the speech in which Cain made the announcement.

First, he had himself introduced before he'd even arrived -- or intended for his introduction to mean his bus. But the kicker was when he decided to placate his saddened supporters with an inspirational quote. An inspirational quote he selected from a movie ... well, from the closing theme song of the movie.

And what movie so moved Herman Cain that it spoke to him in this pivotal moment in his life? 'Pokemon: The Movie 2000.' Just imagine what other animated gems we could have looked forward to had he stayed in the race!
