    Not that I am enamored with Cain, but... there is a part of me that says if you're going to say something, have the backbone to say it publicly, or shut up. If it is the settlement money that is keeping them anonymous, then pick one.
    If there was a settlement many people were involved, at least a dozen; e.g. lawyers, secretaries, witnesses, etc. So, how do you know who is coming forward?

    I ‘voted’ “It doesn't change my opinion at all.” Cain, like a few earlier canidates, has been very entertaining. But, the Republicans are going to have to find a rational reasonable conservative candidate soon.

    Re: Sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain

    I think some of you would be surprised by how much actual sexual harassment there is in the workforce, and has been for decades. Most men seem to think it's hogwash, a vehicle for vindictive females to spite co-workers more successful than they. It's not, nor is it widely reported. Most harassers are males in positions of power in the company. Most victims are females who are much lower on the corporate food chain. If harassment is reported, females are usually the ones sent packing... and they don't get a cushy severence package, so these women must have had either a pair of brass-plated ones or were high enough in their careers to make serious waves.

    I doubt any attractive woman who has worked for 10 or 20 years can truthfully say that she has never been the victim of sexual harassment. God knows, I was. It was blatant and non-relenting. I was just a working single mother with two kids to feed and a mortgage I couldn't quite make. He was a partner in the firm. I was absolutely stuck until I was able to quietly find another job, and quit that one. If a sexual harassment claim... or two... was taken seriously enough for a settlement and confidentiality agreement to be reached, I don't doubt that it too was blatant and non-relenting.

    That said, it has nothing to do with Cain's presidential qualifications. He still doesn't have any.

    You should have picked public option. .
    The lawsuit and settlement in question happened long before he was running for President. It's just that back then, nobody cared who Herman Cain was. Just about anybody who did hear about it back then probably thought "Who's Herman Cain, and why do I care?"

    I did go with "changes my opinion a little bit." He's gone from "Seemingly decent fellow that I don't agree with" to "Possible scumbag I don't agree with"

    It been reported that Herman Cain's top aide accused Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign of being behind the recent stories about sexual harassment allegations against Cain. Too much fun. I'm suposed that it was all made up by Perry's campaign? I thought it was the dems.

    Romney? Why would Romney get mixed up in this, makes no sense on the surface. What plot. Someone has to have a plan to have a plot. I trust that Romney will have enough sense to simply state that he knows nothing of the harassment thing, and I trust that it will be the truth. But, how could this be more fun?

    If you keep paying someone to mow your lawn and that person keeps doing a lousier job every time that person mows your yard. Then guess what. That person is going to keep doing a lousier job and before you know it you will be paying them for doing nothing.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Disclaimer: I do not share the "lesser of two evils" point-of-view, btw, just asking the question in an intellectual sense.
    If you wanted your roof fixed and money was no object would you hire the lousier roofing contractor out of the two lousy roofing contractors?
