Republican Field

As Republicans deal with arguably their first scandal in this primary adventure (that of Cain's apparant harassment accusations) I'm left to wonder whether the focus has backed off of the economy in favor of this more sensationalist bent of news.  Now, I understand that the candidates need to be vetted, but it seems like the more of this "sexy" news gets air time, the less concern there is for the fundamental issues of the economy.  We can pretend that the situation in Greece means nothing to us, but we'll all be harping once more on finance issues when the Euro zone starts a retraction.
