    I don't have a much higher opinion of people who screw with a married person then I do of people who screw around while married.

    Though I realized my post came off as plural when my mind was thinking primarily the 2nd wife.

    Tim-
    The timing in and of itself is a bit adding to her sleeziness factor to be truthful.

    That said, I think this would be more damaging during the general election than during the primary. You tend to have a slightly more informed electorate in a primary then in a general, and I don't think there's a ton of people that this interview is really going to shock. Its the type of thing that would hurt him with people who are on the fence about him for other reasons perhasp...but not likely something to knock off support from those who do like him.

    I think the only reason this would even somewhat hurt him in the primary is because of two reasons:

    1) Santorum is still in and his Iowa win gave him momentum that was unexpected

    2) Similar to the Cain issue, focus will have to be given to this as well as time and attention which takes away from the things Newt does that has garnered him the support he's gotten so far.

    I think it won't be good for his campaign and could harm it, but I think it'd likely be more devestating in the general than the primary.

    This could either be the case of an angry ex or a ****ty Gringrich. Given his history with wives, it's probably 40%-60%.

    The country is over $15 trillion in debt and yet there are still Americans concerned about what ex-wives say?

    We have had at least 52 years where moral character had nothing to do with the presidency. Maybe more but I haven't heard much about the presidents before that.

    If this revelation is the supposed blockbuster exclusive, then please excuse my loud snoring. I was hoping she'd at least reveal he punched kittens.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It will hurt him in Florida, not in South Carolina.My 2c
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Am I the only one who thinks this will not be that much of a "bombshell," and at the end of the day it won't have much negative effect?

    There is no news here.

    And here I thought a lack of moral character was a prerequisite to becoming president. Who knew?

    Sure is ironic that we have so many presidential candidates with "family value" issues from the party that claims to be the one with "family values"!

    Cain is out and Gingrich will be after Florida. Who will be next?

    Probably Rick Santorum, who is an excellent example of family values. Mitt Romney is as well.
