Arianna appeared on 'This Week With Christiane Amanpour' to discuss how Herman Cain's sexual harassment allegations scandal will effect his chances for the GOP nomination.

"I think this is more of a problem with our media culture," she said. "Herman Cain is the latest balloon boy, everybody's obsessed with it. If you really ask commentators off the air whether they really think it's probable that Herman Cain even before these allegations would be president...they would tell you no, so why are we obsessing about it?"

She also suggested that, despite performing weakly in recent polls, Jon Hunstman could end up proving a viable choice for the nomination.

"As all the frontrunners are imploding one after the other...Jon Hunstman may be the last man standing," she said.
