I started watching these videos about the Republican candidates' wives and thought "Huh, I really don't care much." then quickly realized that it's probably because I don't care for the candidates themselves. Obviously the wives are not the ones who will be running the country, but there is something to be said about who a person chooses for his partner in life.

Yes, you're right. Philandering doesn't seem to be exclusive purview of one party or another. They're all contemptible.

Maybe voters and citizens excuse them for having accomplished great things but it would be wonderful to see leaders who understood that their power doesn't entitle them to cheat on their spouses. And I personally do NOT excuse.

Like. 100% look at what Elanor Roosevelt did. She calmed a whole army of veteran protestors and Hoover sent and army. Women run the world through the men we love.

I don't think a woman should have to pursue her goals through another person, even if it's one she loves. Do men run the world through the women they love? I think not! Why should women have to?
