Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
– Herman Cain showed why he is buckling down on foreign policy last night on Fox. He didn't seem to think China was a nuclear power.
– Considering all the facts we know and the amount of settlement, I don't get the sense that the National Restaurant Association really thought Cain sexually harassed anyone. But — and this is a big but — it is one thing to not sexually harass someone and another to withstand the victim crying in a TV camera over what happened.
– I'm in California to interview Governor Rick Perry. I have talked to a couple of pollsters this week and surprisingly several of them think the GOP race is actually a race between Perry and Cain. Their theory is that Mitt Romney remains at a ceiling in GOP support and if either Cain or Perry (or Gingrich as a wild card) can consolidate the race it is game over for Romney.
