Jason Jones thinks that people can take a sexual creep in the White House, but nobody's going to go for Herman Cain's long, awkward pause. (2:16)

>> Jon: MORE FOR MORE ON THE

FALLOUT, WE TURN SENIOR

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT JASON

JONES WHO'S AT CAMPAIGN

HEADQUARTERS.

AS YOU HEARD IN THE QUESTION

PREVIOUSLY, DOES HERMAN CAIN'S

ANSWER ON LIBYA CONTINUE TO JUST

REINFORCE THE IDEA HE'S NOT YET

READY TO COMPETE ON A POLICY

LEVEL WITH THE OTHER G.O.P.

CANDIDATES?

>> JON, BEFORE WE TALK ABOUT LIB

YARKS CAIN'S ADVISORS ARE

ADAMANTLY INSISTING THAT THIS

SEXUAL HARASSMENT SCANDAL IS NOT

OVER AND THAT WHO KNOWS HOW MANY

MORE WOMEN COULD STILL BE OUT

THERE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: CAIN'S ADVISORS?

>> THAT IS CORRECT.

ACCORDING TO MY SOURCES HERE,

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T WANT

TO HEAR ABOUT SOME OBSCURE

FOREIGN WAR!

THEY WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE

ISSUES THAT MATTER: LIKE HERMAN

CAIN'S POSSIBLY UNSTOPPABLE URGE

TO PUT HIS HAND-- OR HANDS, OR

FEET-- UP LADIES' SKIRTS.

>> Jon: HERMAN CAIN'S ADVISORS

WANT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT FROM

LIBYA TO HERMAN CAIN'S SEXUAL

HARASSMENT SCANDAL?

>> YES.

THEAFL THE LONGER THE LAMESTREAM

MEDIA FOCUSES ON FOREIGN

POLICY-- OR REALLY POLICY IN

GENERAL-- THE MORE IT HURTS

THEIR GUY.

>> Jon: RIGHT, BUT I'M NOT

SURE THAT CHARGES OF SEXUAL

HARASSMENT AND CONFUSION OTHER

HIS CAMPAIGN'S HANDLING OF IT

HAVE BEEN PARTICULARLY HELP TO

FEEL CAIN, EITHER.

>> RIGHT.

RIGHT.

BUT I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING

REAL QUICK.

>> LIBYA.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: PEOPLE CAN TAKE A

SEXUAL CREEP IN THE WHITE HOUSE,

BUT NOBODY'S GOING FOR THAT!

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: I CAN'T BELIEVE...

WHAT'S THE CAMPAIGN DO NOW?

>> WELL, THEY'RE GOING REJIGGER

THEIR STRATEGY.

IT'S ALREADY STARTING WITH NEW

CAMPAIGN SLOGANS.

(LAUGHTER)

THAT'S A GOOD ONE.

THEY'RE ALSO CONSIDERING THIS.

(LAUGHTER)

OR, JON, MAYBE SOMETHING A

LITTLE MORE CLASSIC.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: NONE OF THOSE SEEM

PARTICULARLY HELPFUL.

SNEUM OR HE COULD ALWAYS GO BACK

TO TALKING ABOUT LIBYA.

>> Jon: POINT TAKEN, THANK YOU

VERY MUCH,
