Opinion: Was Herman Cain correct to suspend campaign?

In researching this week's topic on effective decisions, I came across an article that has really been in the media lately. The article states that Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain told supporters Saturday that he is suspending his presidential campaign, which has become hobbled in recent weeks by allegations of sexual harassment and an Atlanta woman's claim that they carried on a 13-year affair. While he will still be able to raise and spend campaign funds because he did not officially drop out, Cain's White House bid is effectively over. Cain said he came to the decision after assessing the impact that the allegations were having on his wife, his family and his supporters. "Herman Cain provided an important voice to this process," Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said in a statement. "His ideas and energy generated tremendous enthusiasm for the conservative movement at a time it was so desperately needed to restore confidence in our country.

I think that an effective decision was made because this situation and allegation has impacted his campaign. I believe he needs to sit back and take a break and mend with his wife and start to build their relationship back. Whether he is telling the truth or not, he has made the best effective decision for his followers "
