"Let's talk about what the American people want to talk about."
Those words from Herman Cain campaign strategist Mark Block said it all. It's what politicians always say when they don't want to talk about what reporters are asking about. In this case, whether there might be more shoes to drop in the story about Cain's record as a boss.
Pressed at National Journal's Election Preview about whether there's a possibility that more sexual harassment accusations might emerge against his candidate, Block notably refused to answer the question directly. Instead, he said, the panelists should be focused on "jobs, jobs, jobs."
Nice try. But Cain's going to have to talk more about his own record on the job before he can be heard on how he plans to get jobs for the rest of us.
