What is it with these politicians not being able to stay faithful....if they cannot even stay faithful to there spouses, how can we expect them to stay faithful to the mandates of the office they hold? This is hte only true example of bi-partisanship, since both parties seem to be full of cheaters.......what a shame!

Very true. But at least Dems aren't hypocrits since they don't pontificate on family values.

Its not an issue of hypocracy, its a character issue. These guys lack the character to stay faithful to there values.....I realize Dems view this type of thing as a resume enhancement a lot of the time, but both parties are ful lof a bunch of cheats. People of low character occupying offices that require strong character....and its a shame.

Nice use of talking points. I like it. Clearly screwing around with hookers helped Eliot Spitzer's career.

Screwing around with hookers made B. Frank the chairman......Its about character....Spitzer also was a proponent of values since he was AG, always going after the wrong doers....only do the same wrong....you can't make this about party, I took that little jab, but seriously, we both can admit this cheating issue is rampent in both parties........and God only knows how many other cheaters there are who haven't been caught yet....We cantake our fun little jabs, but its a serious problem we have here and its part of the overall decline in moral values across the board and in both parties.

Totally. I agree both parties have their share of bad eggs and good point on Spitzer. He was a massive let down in lots of ways. But I stand by my point. The conservative Washington Times seems to agree.

I think we feel the same way, just using different termonology. I don't balme an entire party for one man's actions. I think everyone when they take a vow of marriage become proponnents of certain values. Clinton for example when he was cheating i nthe white house, I thought that was a personal character issue, I didn't try to associate it with all Dems...like you said, bad apples in both parties. Edwards screwing around I think cost him the VP spot from Obama. I say boot out Sanford....I say boot them all out when they are busted for cheating...like I said, if they can't keep there promise to there spouse, I do not see how they can keep the promise to server our intrests....
