Perry questions intentions of American diplomats

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry said Monday he didn’t think some State Department employees were working in the best interest of the country.

“I’m not sure our State Department serves us well,” the Texas governor said on a radio program with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. “I’m not talking about the Secretary of State here. I’m talking about the career diplomats and the Secretary of State who, all too often, may not be making decisions, or giving advice to the administration that’s in this country’s best interest.”

Cain's accuser says candidate 'still in denial'

(CNN) - The woman who accused Herman Cain of groping her after a 1997 dinner says the Republican presidential candidate is "still in denial" about his conduct.

Sharon Bialek is the first woman to publicly accuse Cain of sexual harassment after last week's disclosure that the National Restaurant Association - which Cain led in the late 1990s - made payments to two other women who complained about his conduct. Cain has vehemently denied any allegation of misconduct.

Cain must engage on allegations, GOP operatives say

Washington (CNN) - Several unaffiliated Republican operatives say Herman Cain must say more about the sexual harassment allegations being leveled against him, because his current message is not putting the controversy to rest.

"He needs to be upfront, forthright and get this story behind him," Bob Vander Platts, a leading Iowa Republican activist, tells CNN. The ongoing allegations, he adds, are a "test of Cain's leadership" and "a tipping point for his campaign."
