Herman Cain's latest Flip Flop: Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Presidential hopefuls Herman Cain and Tim Pawlenty have retreated on their calls to reinstate “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the Clinton-era law that bars gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.
Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, also told Fischer that he would back reinstatement of DADT.
But both men backed off during Monday night's presidential debate in New Hampshire, leaving only former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum to call for the law's return.
Cain said that while he wouldn't have overturned “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” he doesn't believe it wise to undo it now.
“Now that they have changed it, I wouldn't create a distraction trying to turn it over as president,” Cain said. “Our men and women have too many other things to be concerned about rather than have to deal with that as a distraction.”
