    Hillary is a bitch too. Just a different kind of one.

    I didn't know Arnie posed nude. But the question still stands. Would a woman who did the same thing be elected? Or would she be scorned for it instead and made out to be some brainless whore for it? I'm leaning toward the latter, not that I agree with it though. I just don't see this country electing a woman who posed nude. I think they would rip her to shreds. However, a man doing the same thing and it's not an issue in the slightest.
    Yea, there's a pretty hilarious pic of it if you google image search it.

    As to the rest, I think you're pretty spot on.

    Re: If a woman had done what Scott Brown did...

    Those of you who think it would be a big deal, let me ask you this question: What segment of the electorate would be so offended by a nude picture from 30 years prior that they would vote against the candidate (whom they otherwise would have supported)?

    I assume you're thinking of the Religious Right...but even they are much more adaptable to a like-minded candidate than is commonly believed. They've supported candidates who have had affairs (McCain), candidates who have conceived outside of wedlock (Palin), and candidates with DUIs (Bush). And I don't say that as a put-down...I'm just illustrating that they can be more tolerant than you think if the candidate is otherwise in line with their views.

    Would a nude picture from a candidate's youth really be beyond the pale?

    I think there's a difference between knowing that a candidate did something bad in the past and staring it right in the chest.

    The people who would be "staring it right in the chest" - instead of merely knowing about it - are probably not the people most likely to care about the candidate's moral values.

    It depends on if she was hot or not.

    Re: If a woman had done what Scott Brown did...

    forty years ago, I think it would be a career killer for national office for either gender, but it's less likely now, especially if the candidate simply stressed that they were young and dumb at the time.

    Interestingly, It is much less of an issue in regional politics. I have a book, that I don't have at hand right now, so I forget the title. Late in the book are pictures of dignified, sweet looking, elderly ladies, pillars of the community, garden club presidents, library founders and the like as I recall, circa 1940. The book is about prostitutes in frontier Alaska.

    It might matter in Alabama, but honestly I don't think enough people in Massachusetts would have cared. In fact, it might have helped her get the male youth vote....

    EDIT: There were some rumors that Palin had posed nude for something once, but I don't think that anyone really gave a crap.
