Will Cain finally step aside?

Since he appeared on stage with his fellow GOP contenders, Cain's doubters have insisted he would be just a flash in the pan, and at worst, a candidate more interested in selling books than actually getting elected

Since he appeared on stage with his fellow GOP presidential contenders, Cain's doubters have insisted he would be just a flash in the pan, and at worst, a candidate more interested in selling books than actually getting elected. It seems those predictions are finally coming true, though it took allegations from multiple women (including a newcomer announcing a 13-year extramarital affair) to slow his ascent.

Team Cain continues to deny all charges (and work to make accusers look like fame-seeking troublemakers, or in the words of competitor Jon Huntsman: a "bimbo eruption"). But the headlines this week were considerably different than they were just a month ago when the candidate stood at the top of conservative voter polls: Herman Cain reconsiders campaign. It appears he might finally be realizing he won't make it to the first round of caucuses.

Update: Two days later, December 3, Cain "suspended" his campaign for president, saying: "The media frenzy has been just awful."
