    Herman Cain appeared stumped during an interview while responding to a question about the Obama administration's support for the Libyan uprising. "President Obama supported the uprising, correct?" Cain asked, confirming whether Obama wanted Gaddafi out. He then said he wanted to make sure they were referring to the "same thing." “I gotta go back and see,” he said. “I’ve got all this stuff twirling around in my head.” A Cain spokesman said the candidate was asked the question at the end of a long interview, after a long day of travel. Meanwhile, Sharon Bialek’s former boyfriend Dr. Victor Zuckerman told a news conference on Monday that she had told him in 1997 that Cain had touched her inappropriately.
