Is there any hope for him?

Mr. Herman Cain, who everybody knew by now, has managed to get his political ambition in a twist.

He has denied sexual harassment charges, something he should do to defend his position as a conservative politician, who has been gaining ground in the race of the candidates of the Republican Party, from which to nominate a person to face off with President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

He happens to be first or second in the list of candidates, judging from media and other straw polls, as he is head-to-head with former Gov. Mitt Romney in that race; and that is not a position to strike out on.

However, a malignant case of sexual harassment is causing his campaign to veer into a sudden ditch, and he is desperate to stop that from happening.

At first, he has said that nothing of that nature ever took place in his career, and that the charge has been concocted by his opponents to derail him; but he later on admitted that he has been accused of sexual misconduct, which did not have any substantial basis.

That is called "flip-flop" in American politics, and no political figure running for office has ever been able to get past it to win an election. So, that is where he is now, with the media pundits, critics and strategists, some of whom want to cut him off so badly, he has given them the materiel to do just that.

If he is found to be lying, then there will be no need for him to continue in his bid to win the Republican Party's nomination race. He is finished; and he knows it.

The same thing applies to his co-contestant, Mitt Romney, who has been flip flopping on so many issues, even his front runner position in the nomination race of his party is slipping very fast, let alone his showing in the 2012 presidential election; and if both he and Mr. 999 are waived aside, the Republican Party will be in serious trouble.

Cain has had some damage control underway, as his camp seemed to be fighting hard to pull him out of the sexual harassment accusation. The Cain campaign staff has put a kind of shield around him, wanting him to abstain from answering questions himself, as the staff was equipped with research material on the matter, and the staffers would sufficiently be able to deal with the onslaught of questions being directed at their candidate; however, would that work?

That should be the question many people would be asking. Otherwise, Mr. Cain's political future would be completely doomed by such a simple human foible, and would be telling a lie.

By the way, the man talks too much; and that is not a good sign for a great president. Is there any hope for him to be what he says he wants to be?
