Cain under fire at GOP debate – CNN contributors on who came out on top

With his poll numbers rising, Herman Cain come under fire from fellow Republicans at the GOP debate last night. 

GOP rivals relentlessly attacked his so-called "9-9-9" tax reform plan, which calls for a 9-percent flat tax on income, a 9-percent corporate tax, and a 9-percent national sales tax. They called the plan inadequate and politically unrealistic. 

But Cain fired back – particularly at Mitt Romney, criticizing the former Massachusetts Governor's 59-point plan as simple and nontransparent.

Christine Romans talks with CNN contributors Hilary Rosen, John Avlon and Will Cain on their take on Herman Cain's moment in the spotlight.
