Herman Cain Keeps Screwing Up In the National Spotlight

Herman Cain is having serious problems on the campaign trail.  He just found out that he's not quite the candidate that he thought he was.

ATLANTA -- Herman Cain is learning the hard way what it means to face the glare of the national spotlight.
After captivating Republicans hungry for an alternative to 2012 GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, Cain has made a series of stumbles that have left some questioning whether he's ready for the White House.
His words and actions have drawn more scrutiny since his rise in the polls catapulted him into the top tier of the race for the party's white House nomination.
