Fox News says Cain is openly flirting with quitting the Republican campaign. This is probably not the first time Cain has openly flirted with something:
"I can only conjecture that maybe I am the Democrats' worst nightmare if I win the nomination," Cain said, later suggesting that some Democrats may want former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to win the nomination so they can go after his personal life.
Cain said he expects to make a decision within "several days," after consulting first his family and then taking the pulse of his supporters and donors.
"A week from now, I will have made a final decision," he said.
Man! I hope he gets someone good to write his campaign memoir when he drops out.
