Cain aims for fifth place in New Hampshire

Herman Cain tells Fox News this morning that, to his campaign, fifth is first.

"I finished #5 in Iowa -- that's right where we want to be.

If we finish in the top 5 in New Hampshire, Martha, we will be ecstatic, because we are going to put the same type of on-the-ground effort in New Hampshire that we did in Iowa and we're also working South Carolina, simultaneously."

Cain was fifth in the Ames straw poll on Saturday (almost sounds like he thinks the straw poll was the caucuses, and that Iowa is done).
