69. Well, it's a mixed blessing. I love to see exposure of the hypocrisy of the Party that claims
ownership of God, family values and patriotism. And I believe each instance of that has long-term, positive benefit for the Democratic Party and for America as a whole.

Besides, I doubt Cain was going to get the nomination anyway, despite an apparent surge. When it comes to race in America, polls have proven deceptive. And I think his surge was temporary.

Bottom line: I have trouble imagining that Republican primary voters were going to guaranty that the next President of the United States of America was an African American man.

As for Newt, Romney and Huntsman, they all have severe problems at the nomination stage, with the religious right and even the religious "moral majority," which will, IMO, lead to a very dispirited Republican base.

So, overall, I see Cain's withdrawing in disgrace as a win for Democrats.
