Last night Alevda King went on CNN to defend Herman Cain. She says she’s known him since 2000 and that he is absolutely not a “skirt chaser”.
It’s about time that someone with heft defends Herman Cain. And I agree with Alevda and don’t think he’s guilty of any impropriety.
I know he’s had a rough time dealing with all these allegations, and he’s certainly made some mistakes. I didn’t criticize him for his initial response when all these accusations started because I believe he is an honest man trying to deal with a near impossible situation. However, I do criticize him for, shall way say, being too honest yesterday when his campaign confirmed that he is reassessing. That is something that should have never been made public as it sends the wrong signals to people that support him or may still be deciding to support him.
Of course there have been other blunders that we all know about, but each debate gives him a chance to reaffirm his strengths and when he does, the other stuff starts to fade over time. So yes, I think he needs some really good debates in the month of December and he really needs to own the issues. That will wash away much of the recent past.
