    Of course they are, if they break the law. Personal matters such as this, are just that, personal.

    However, if one runs on a "values" platform, when they cross the line, isn't that a bit different?

    I was being sarcastic. Of course they are. Clinton's escape infuriated me and left me traumatized. Sorry..............

    I agree that stepping-down is only required if a law was broken and I think the criminal act generally needs to be a felony; however, his lying all over the place could be a factor.
    When did I ever say one must be rich or male to be powerful?

    There are many levels of power, with varying sizes of circles of influence. Not all of them necessitate wealth or a traditional suit and tie.

    I also never said the partner is subordinate. They don't have to be. Women can be powerful, crappy spouses too. There can also be an exception to this in either gender. It's just a trend.

    I just want cred for predicting the Clintons will attempt to save Man from Weiner. Nobody will respond to my thread on this topic. So, here I am. I CALL IT.

    What? Did he send you his weiner on twitter?

    I don't think she said anything feminist or about gender, unless you associate her phrase "power" with men only and not women... Women can be the more "powerful" one in the relationship, the bread winner or whatever. Just because somebody makes more income or has more fame than the other, it doesn't mean the relationship is sexist in nature.

    If he resigns we would have to return to Mediscare.

    So, I don't know.

    Ultimately, his behavior reeks of a lack of self control, especially given how he waffled over an explanation of what happened and is now in total CYA mode. I dislike this lack of integrity. But again, he is effective in pursuing sane economic policy.

    I am not sure if the good outweighs the bad or vise versa.
    I know what you mean... It's sad seeing so many people ruin their careers and public lives because they couldn't their weiner in their pants. A lot of them had a real chance at being president, and had the respect of their community. It's so common of a story, and I wonder how many do it and never get caught.

    It makes me wonder if having mistresses in common in DC, and that's why so many of them think they are invisible and will never get caught. It's always sad to see this, especially see their spouses hurt.

    He probably has a lot of aides working for him right now... just took a holiday to get treatment. It's just BAS in DB... business as usual. I imagine their interns and aides do all the grunt work, and they get all the praise and rewards.
