    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.
    My issue with that situation was more about his lying about the issue and the stances his adminstration took against appointing people to high ranking positions based on prior infidelity....while he was doing interns in his office.

    I'm still of the belief that if Barb is right, and he continues to test as well as he has thus far, he can blow past all the objections. And on the same note as the term of the thread at this point - they've been married for 1) crazy lots of years and 2) he loves, respects and protects his wife.

    Only - really? A quick board search would bring up a whole lot of posts of people yelping about Obama getting elected BECAUSE he's black. Not 'in spite of.' And I'm pretty sure it wasn't the Dems making said accusations.

    I do not think that the inner details of the Daniels marriage have a thing to do with if he would make a good president. I strongly suspect that Mrs. Daniels does NOT want anybody looking into the specific details of her past and feels that it would not be the best of things should those details come out. If Daniels is indeed the protective husband that some feel he is, I also suspect that is one reason why he would not run for president.

    I think you have hit the nail on the proverbial head.

    good point. the vast majority of people couldn't care less about his race. in the meantime, democrats in general care far more about his race than republicans in general.

    what, you mean like on their Wiki Page? it's not exactly like this is some kind of state secret if we are discussing it on an open internet forum. there aren't any other "details to come out" that would make the situation worse or better that I am aware of - just the amount of bashing she will receive during the campaign.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    admittedly it's limited, but the first thing that pops to mind is that there have been, on this forum, a couple of threads now devoted to Cain. his race isn't a point of conversation until someone like haymarket comes in.

    but the democrats tendency to appeal to identity groups - in comparison with the republicans tendency to appeal to ideological groups is pretty well established. Who do Republicans get accused of pandering to? social conservatives. Democrats? racial minorities.

    Oh. I thought you were talking about America in general, with pie charts and everything.
