    Why have they been silent on this? Any other time.....they are all over any Repub even mentioning anything about the LGBT crowd and their issues.
    Were you surprised to hear about Dennis Hastert? No?

    Yep.....quite the surprise. But you also have to remember when Hastert was picked for Speaker. It was as a replacement for another who got himself in trouble.

    They didn't think he had any skeletons in his closet. But then the MS Media changed that perspective, huh?

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, a presidential hopeful, is a bachelor. Would he need a first lady? It's a question complicated by shifting views of what a first lady should be.

    To some, the role is more than just ceremonial. To others, choosing china sets and guest lists is a relic of a bygone age.

    Only two presidents were unmarried when taking the oath of office: James Buchanan (D) and Grover Cleveland (D). Of the two, only Buchanan remained single through his presidency. But even he had a woman in his life willing to step in and play the role of White House hostess. Buchanan’s niece, Harriet Lane, became a well-known Washington socialite who, as the White House website highlights, “filled the White House with gaiety and flowers, and guided its social life with enthusiasm and discretion, winning national popularity.”....snip~

    Lindsey Graham interview raises question: Do we need a first lady?
    I think Graham is positively thrilled that he keeps getting asked this question. The artificial controversy and the errant criticism that bubbles up over gives him more media attention than he has received since the start of his campaign. Even better he gets to play the victim who is quite clearly 'in the right'. It also makes him quirky and different! I'm sure he's very happy right now.

    Voted No. I do not think we "need" a first lady as if to mean requirement.

    I agree that we don't need one, meaning if one were President, he shouldn't be actively looking for one.

    We've had single Presidents before. No big.

    The hypocrisy of it all is mind blowing. I love it when a politician, who stumps from a perceived moral high ground, pushes their party's moral issues, all the while, turns out to be a low-life scumbag. I especially like to read about the religious windbags getting busted.

    Honestly, it bothers me none that Lindsey Graham appears to be as queer as a three dollar bill. It's mainly the hypocrisy of it all that I find unappealing.
