The entire Herman Cain story is fascinating. He’s accused of sexual harassment by multiple women, but denies the allegations vigorously and pledges to fight on. Despite some slippage in the polls, he’s forged ahead and changed the subject pretty effectively since the scandal first broke.

But now he’s accused of a consensual 13-year affair, nothing illegal, and he’s considering an exit? He’s said, “We are reassessing as we speak. Reassessment means reevaluation.”

Cain’s collapse might be the single greatest gift Newt Gingrich has ever received.
