Will Herman Cain Drop Out Of The Race?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Herman Cain told members of his campaign staff on Tuesday that he was reassessing whether to proceed with his presidential campaign, an aide confirmed, a day after an Atlanta woman disclosed details of what she said was a 13-year affair with him.

In a morning conference call with his advisers, Mr. Cain said that he would make a decision in the coming days about whether to stay in the race after his campaign was rocked by another round of allegations about his s[e]xual conduct."

New York Times

Last night, Ginger White, alleged during a TV interview, that she had a long-term s[e]xual relationship with the former Godfather`s Pizza CEO. Cain said he knew White, but denied the affair. I`m betting that the randy minister knew her in the biblical sense.

It would be difficult for a presidential candidate, without a history of s[e]xual allegations made against him, to survive this type of scandal. But as we all know four women have alleged that they were s[e]xually harassed by Cain.

Cain`s campaign is comprised beyond redemption, not only due to the s[e]xual harassment allegations levied against him, but because of the series of gaffes he has committed in the last couple of months. Cain has been exposed as an ignoramus who isn`t ready to be the Mayor of Wasilla, let alone assume the role of Leader of the Free World.

Cain needs to drop out of the race for the good of the Republican party and the democratic process. If the disgraced presidential hopeful appears on an equal footing with the rest of the other GOP presidential candidates in the next debate, he will delegitimize the entire field.

Cain was never serious about becoming president anyway, he was using the presidential campaign as a platform to sell his books, and to increase his value as a motivational speaker.

Before this latest bombshell Cain was already slipping in the polls, he`s dropped from a 1st tier candidate, to a 2nd tier candidate, the next stop for the Cain Train will be a derailment.
