Jennifer Rubin nails it

...about Herman Cain and the sexual assault allegations that have been revealed.

She goes on to talk about the upcoming CNBC debate, to be moderated by Maria Bartimoro. Here's the money graph:

The next debate, hosted by Maria Bartiromo of CNBC, is Wednesday. I’m sure she’ll ask about the candidates’ tax plans. She should grill Perry on his crony capitalism and views on property rights. She should ask Newt Gingrich about his leadership failures as speaker of the House. She needs to delve into Mitt Romney’s claims about job creation both as governor and at Bain Capital. And, yes, she should explore Cain’s liabilities as well, including lack of familiarity with China’s nuclear capability, his inability to answer questions about his own tax plan and, yes, a pattern (three is a pattern) of alleged sexual harassment and failure to be straightforward with the American people.

If Cain can’t hack it, he should go back to the book tour. If he wants to be the nominee, he needs to show voters he can take the heat. Otherwise, he’s got no business being in a presidential race.
