    Sure, I can agree with that. Lying though is a character flaw. How am I going to trust someone not to lie on important things if they apparently won't tell the truth on harrassment cases that supposedly was fradualent?

    If there's one thing I've seen about Presidential politics, what he needs is a top-tier staff to tell him HOW to lie on television.

    Unfortunatly lying is part and parcel of the definition of being a politician.

    Not saying it makes it right.

    Are there other republican presidental candidates with sexual harrassment suits too? I believe it is just Herman Cain with the dirty laundry.

    As Simon W Moon has said here that it is Cain's shuffling to cover it up that makes it worst for him.

    First he said he didn't remember any such incident.... And to that I say baloney. I remember my first speeding ticket at age 17. I think I definitely would remember a sexual harrassment charge.
    Even if it is 20yrs ago it still counts. Jane Fonda's big gaff in going to North Vietnam was almost 40 yrs ago and I don't see anyone forgetting about that.

    It's relevant in the sense that it b*tchslapped your claim of liberal media bias.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Which is why its time to move past Cain (and Bachman and Perry and Santorium...and now even "I stand for nothing or everyting" Romney) and nominate an adult. The problem for the regressives, however, is the adults in the party are either not running or poll as less than 5%.

    Absolute delusional goobly-gook. If there was a settlement, that was the end of the matter. There was no forum or means by which the party could be found guilty or exonerated as the parties agreed not to pursue the matter.

    There is NO exoneration (nor admission of guilt) in a settlement. Though a settlement should technically mean nothing, conventional wisdom generally ascribes admission by the parties involved or there would be no settlement.

    BTW... in the future if you wish to present a statement in a factual manner (such as you did) that is contrary to conventional wisdom or knowledge, please provide a cite. Obviously you can not do that in this case as no such cite exists.

    J, you're being selective and arguing with some one other than the person before. Clinton was a womanizer. Few doubt that. Are you saying now that you did not and would not hold Clinton's womanizing against him?

    And there are fewer words on Clinton and Edwards from us here as few disagree on the womanizing claim. Some might note Monica was willing and thus not one claiming anything, but that's another story. Few back Edwards either. Nor should they.

    So, what's you defense of Cain if charges are true?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
