    I actually would give him the benefit of the doubt until the whole story is played out....but......Cain said he didn't remember, then he said that he did remember but didn't remember the details, then he remembers there ways a payout.

    Honestly, if it turns into some ridiculous case, no big deal. He is running for President of the United States of America. Honesty is important to me and a lot of voters. If Cain would of said "yes, there was a case...blah blah blah" whatever I would probably give him some slack. The issue is old like you mention. The fact his first reaction is to lie about though is troubling.

    By who? He says they have no merit. The women and the Resturaunt Assocition hasn't said anything.

I can't say anymore w/o coming across as vindictive toward someone who caused trouble for me or w/o violating the NDA around the matter." But he didn't.

    Meh, he isn't a politician, so I think that is insignificant....But we will see.

    Why? is there some reason to believe that you would vote for a Cain? Or any republican for that matter?

    Because he's running for President of the United States! Because he's leading the Republican Primary! This guy could possibly be my President.

    No he wasn't. A settlement was reached, dollars were paid, silence was purchased. Not the same thing at all.

    then we should look at what he can do with this mess, rather than some frivolous crap 20 years ago.

    Yeah, now. What is evident is that his staff are not top tier at all.

    He needs a top-tier staff to tell him not to lie on television?
