    Sure it could be, but like I said I seriously doubt any current Governor would get up the Governor's Mansion just to be Sec., DHS. Why give up all those perks?

    And are you campaigning for Jeb Bush these days?

    Do you approve of things like that?

    Absolutely not!

You know, they’re 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.”

    Congress is also exempted themselves from insider trading laws. Is that just the way things are as well? Where's the accountability?

    No wonder governments/politicians get corrupted. When one is responsible for making their own set of rules, expectations should be thrown out the window.

    I don't think expectations should be tossed, unless one believes that a corrupt government is just fine with them.

    If the system is broken, not even Mother Teresa could remain uncorrupted.

    You may be right about that...However, when it is brought to light, we need to root it out, and throw the people participating in it, out of office, even if that means losing that seat. I'd rather have an honest democrat, than a corrupt republican, and vice versa.

    Before the faux outrage gets much bigger about this, I just have one thing to say...
