    Everybody thought those silly bikini pictures of Palin were for real but tens of thousands of people still voted for her.

    I'm just sayin.

    anyone can.
    I agree, although stealing an election isn't exactly winning it.

    Sadly Disagree. Look at the beating Bush, Clinton and Obama have taken over their past drug use. People use it as a tool to cast doubts about the person running.

    You're right that their political opponents criticized Bush, B. Clinton, and Obama for their drug use. But an important thing to keep in mind: They all won.

    Every time Hillary Clinton alluded to Obama's drug use during the campaign, she was roundly criticized for it and it didn't affect Obama at all. When Bill Shaheen brought it up (and speculated he might have sold drugs), he had to resign his campaign post.

    Depends on if she was hot or a cow.

    I guess there's a chance that a woman who did a tasteful non-nude playboy spread back in the 70's could get elected, albeit a small one.

    It's also worth noting that Arnold got elected after showing a lot more than Brown did.
    There were pictures of Arnold's pee pee?

    I didn't know that at the time,... But if it is, it is.

    It doesn't change my point,... that if Al "Stewart Smalley" Franken can get elected,... anyone can.

    I think it would partly depend on the region, I could see this sinking a candidate in the south. But on a national level and in most regions, a few tasteful nude shots twenty years ago wouldn't be much more than a footnote. We've elected known adulterers, drug users, and drunk drivers as President in recent years. As long as it as sufficiently "in the distant past" of the candidate, most voters would be willing to give them a pass.

    It's okay as long as they didn't inhale.
