    Again, this is all silliness as the point is not whether Cain was involved in sexual harassment but how he handles crisis.

    Look, every politician has skeletons in their respective closets. Even if those skeletons aren't very ugly, the press will make a big deal out of them (with Obama they had to turn Bill Ayers into an active terrorist AND make it look like Obama was his best friend). The press will find them and have fun with them to see how you respond. This is a part of the vetting process. The test in this is not usually about the matter itself, but in how you respond to the arrows being shot in your direction. The important question is can you handle the press?

    Unfortunately for Cain this whole matter has been handled very poorly. As seems to be his MO, he can't give you a straight, crisp and consistent answer to anything (abortion, 999, razor's on the fence, now this). He is failing this part of his test miserably and showing himself to be far from ready for prime time.

    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.
    Don't have a link yet, but I heard on the radio this morning that one of them women has taken acception to this claim of him being exonerated and is seeking permission to break the confidentuality clause in her settlement.

    Where does the "exonerated" bit come from?
    I may be wrong.

    Of course ! This is about a couple of bimbo's, now that Herman is higher up the ladder, trying to cash-in ala Anita Hill.

    Oh. Herman Cain said he was exonerated. Well, there you have it.

    So, they are automatically bimbo's, and Cain is automaticaly innocent. And we know this how?

    Too late for your concern. Herman has been lynched. It was near "automatic".

    They just gave Cain enough rope. He did the rest. If he had handled this differently, it would be over by now.
    I may be wrong.

    And once again the conservatives play the race card.

    I guarantee you that this would have come out no matter who the candidate was, or what his or her race was. Same thing with Thomas.

    Incidentally, in case you missed it, a former long-time girlfriend of Thomas' recently confirmed many of Anita Hill's allegations. Thomas should never have been confirmed.

    Lillian McEwen breaks her 19-year silence about Justice Clarence Thomas
    "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."

    She's bluffing.
