Cain "Reassessing" Campaign
Herman Cain told members of his campaign staff on Tuesday that he was reassessing whether to proceed with his bid for the Republican presidential nomination[.]
I've not written about Cain much, because I knew he had no chance to win the GOP nomination (contra Nate Silver) and in fact he was just engaged in a speaking tour to raise his profile (ironically, I think Newt Gingrich was too, but he may stumble into being the GOP nominee - Obama is a lucky guy, nothing to sneeze at) and speaking fees.
Cain stumbled into the "anti-Mitt" role, and a lot of things he probably did not want to discuss have been reported on. If I was advising Cain, I would tell him not to drop out. If leaves now, it will look like he was driven out by scandal. If he just goes and loses, getting say, 6% of the vote in Iowa, he'll still have a viable "speaking career."
Speaking for me only
