    I would say that is true. There were many conservatives that were not pleased at the least that Clinton was having an affair, further, that he was having the affair during State business. Then after the lying under oath came out, it got wrapped up into the "national embarrassment" category, where we had two candidates that either distanced themselves from the entire image or were out in front campaigning on making the image problem go away.

    It may, it may not...Here in SC Newt grabbed nearly 40% of the vote, including a fair share of women...Character does matter, and right Obama better be concerned about his record, which highlights his character as President as a failure...That is going to be the issue when it matters.

    It's early, and SC GOP is a very, very limited audience.

    But it’s worth keeping in mind that even before Marianne Gingrich went public, Newt Gingrich was already facing tough odds when it comes to his support among women nationally — a factor that underscores the argument made by his GOP rivals against his electability in the fall.

    There typically tends to be a gender gap in presidential general elections, as women vote more Democratic than men.

    But a CNN/Time/Opinion Research survey conducted Jan. 11-12 showed that among national adults, Gingrich faces the biggest gender gap of all the GOP contenders.

    The focus on the issues at hand, the economy, defense, foreign policy, debt, taxes, etc...a mano a mano on different philosophies will prevail. The childish "who is ****ing who" will take a back seat

    Show us all that person who has not wronged another.

    In the meantime, Clinton is still lying. Gingrich not

    It hasn't really in the past. At some level, you have to like the person. So while I wish for issue swayed voters, the past says that it takes more than that.

    And I didn't vote for Clinton. But as noted above, what Clinton did matter later on. Waht Newt did will here as well.

    Sorry, tell yourself what you want, but i'm merely pointing it out to you. By all means, pick Newt. or Santorum. Either works for me.
