It’s amusing to me that in this race for the GOP nomination we have gotten to the part where decades-old sexual dalliances have come to light. This reminds me of the 1992 election where Gennifer Flowers and the girl with the large nose publicly came forward about their relationships with former President Clinton–and nobody cared. Maybe it’s Clinton’s essence, his charisma, but the man was elected President no problem.
Not the same with Herman Cain. Decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct and court documents are surfacing about Cain’s past indiscretions and this could cost him the nomination. Why? Because he’s not the most charismatic of the candidates. Romney can take this information and run with it and make Cain out to be the most evil man looking to be President. Republican candidates have to stand up to a different litmus test than Democratic candidates–they have to be more moral and more self righteous or admit their mistakes ahead of time and thank Jesus for his forgiveness. I’m sorry to say this, but unless Cain can find something worse on Mitt Romney, we will not see Cain’s name on the ballot.
