The Lesson In the Cain
What is happening to Herman Cain should be a lesson to potential Republican candidates in the future
If the allegations against Herman Cain do prove to be his undoing
and moot the time he spent in Tennessee, let it be a lesson to anyone
considering running for the presidency in the future: What you consider
your "private life" really matters. If you ran around on your wife years
ago, or you engaged in behavior that was inappropriate at one time but
you'd never dream of doing that now that you've settled down, you had
better approach it openly before your campaign gets serious or it will come back to bite you.
It would be better, if you intend to involve yourself in major national
politics, to deal openly with your past before you begin. If the
skeletons in your closet are going to stand in your way, it is better
not to waste your party's time or the voters' time.
