    Is that why it was acceptable for Brown? He said he did a 'bad thing'?

    I did not say it was, or was not.

    I said that, for some persons, such actions are unacceptable.

    Not everyone.

    It is possible, however, that more people find it unacceptable for females to do so.

    That's the whole premise of the thread. I don't just think it's possible, I think it's an outright reality that if a woman had posed nude she would not have been given a free pass the way Brown was.

    Well, I don't know that much about Brown or his qualifications, but I like to think I would overlook such petty distractions as if a candidate did or did not pose nude at some point. Or any number of other things.

    Then again, it would depend on how a candidate responded to such accusations. If they were like "Yeah, I did that, and it was quite fun, I love showing off my bod..." Well, I might take issue. Such a response shows traits which I might dislike in a person representing me. If an explanation were given that I could accept, however, I don't see the issue.

    To the extent that's true, it by and large turns on the reaction of women to it.

    Executing policy is less important, as I see it, than understanding the policy they're executing. Otherwise you have the advisors, the Dick Cheneys and the like, running the show.

    What makes him an experienced statesman?

    He won an election, duh.

    When Scott Brown spent 10 years in the Massachusetts State House and State Senate, that made him an experienced statesman. In contrast, when Obama spent 7 years in the IL State Senate and 4 years as a US Senator, that simply made him an unqualified rookie.
