Herman Cain's Turning Point


Some quick observations regarding the alleged sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain.

His entire campaign is based on authenticity (“America is run by stupid people”), simplicity (999), and a jovial demeanor (his electric smile). This story has the potential to ruin all of that. How Cain handles this will be crucial.

This moment presents Cain with an opportunity. If he lays all the facts on the table up front and early, then he will definitely NOT look like a politician and that will keep his authenticity label in check.

On the other hand, if he only gives a few details and lets this story trickle out for a month, then he will come across as a politician looking to hide a secret.

It's the moment of truth for him. Will he be Politician Cain or Citizen Cain?

More analysis as the story unfolds. The latest is here.
