    And presidents are not subject to the same human frailties that would make a wife and mother leave her husband and 4 daughters for another man?


    Daniels says his family is scared ‘to death’ of 2012 scrutiny


    BTW, I don't remember Clinton advertising it either. Actually, it took one hell of a lot of taxpayers money to bring that information to the public.

    I think we need to be more tolerant of peoples mistakes in life and also realize that neither of these incidents, if not made public, affect the ability of the office holder to carry out his or her duties. Now I am not promoting lewd and lascivious behavior by our representatives (or their spouses), but on the other hand we shouldn't crucify a person male or female for a weak moment in their life.

    Then apparently you missed the twelve years the Repbulicans were in charge of Congress and didn't cut the big government down to size, but rather grew it by trillions.

    Of course, that is what liberals want as well, we just have different priorities of where those cuts should be made. If each side was willing to compromise a little we might actually make some significant cuts.

    I think your wrong and your right barb...there has been a drop off in a certain demographic, Paul Ryans own town hall meetings shows that. Your also right about a congress and President that spends and spends...well thats a two way street barb...the republican senate just voted to keep on keeping on giving billions to the oil industry. I know the argument, take it from everyone not just them...I say NO to that...Big Oil is just about the only industry in this country that has no competition from outside or within itself. We are all hostages to gas and heating oil. So there is something to be said that the left is right that the GOP wants to pick and choose what big spending and govt is kept...truth is barb they BOTH piss away our money, it just depends which toilet you prefer where its going

Of course they eventually came back together for the kids, which I think is a positive thing, but the Christian right may not look at it that way.
    I"m a member of the Christian Right - I'm telling you, it only makes Daniels look better, not worse. had he run away it would be a problem for him; but this is a story of Daniels who is able to forgive and remarry - reinforcing the importance of the teachings of Jesus and the family. both of those play pretty big in Christian right circles.

    Can't speak for the Christian Right because I'm not one, but my issue with Clinton wasn't the infedelity. While I think its incredibly beneficial and preferable to have a President that shows a good example (even if its just outwardly) of morality, its not a large basis for my likes or dislikes of a politician.

    My issue with Clinton was far more the use of his position of power with someone that was a subordinant. Its similar to how I wouldn't expect my boss to be fired if he had an affair with a chick from a bar, but if he got the receptionist to get him a hummer under his desk while at work I'd expect him to get canned. My issues with Clinton and Monica was less about the blowjob itself and more about the who, where, and when the blowjob took place.

    And then you have the whole perjury thing, but that's a seperate issue.

    Admittedly, for the religious right, it likely was much more based around the cheating. But just wanted to give a different veiw point of it from the right.

    Won't happen. If he gets that far, she won't stand a chance, IMO. Too much ammo aimed in her general direction. All of us trumpeting about how Sarah has no business in the White House will be seconded by Cain's supporters, and it'll be all over with.

    HIS infidelity. He was the president. It was his bad. Mitch doesn't have that baggage. He took his wife back. He's not the bad guy, but he would be the guy that was running.
