    Herman Cain is down, and he may be out soon. The National Review and The Des Moines Register report that Cain told senior staffers on a conference call this morning that he's "reassessing" whether to stay in the presidential race, and he'll decide within a few days. "We have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud in some people’s minds," Cain said. The GOP hopeful also canceled a private dinner with New York's "media elite," scheduled for Sunday, in case he drops out fo the race.

Cain tried to preempt White by announcing the accusation first, declaring, “Here we go again.”
