Our Post-Spitzer World

I believe a lot of the jitters we are having about possible scandals coming forth from either presidential camp is the result of the Elliot Spitzer scandal.
More than the election, this was the most important turning point in American politics because it holds people to a new standard.
I am one of the few liberals who did not find Bill Clinton's infidelity a lighthearted turn with a cigar.
The only sex that I have ever had that is worth $4,300.00 is with the woman I love who stimulates me mentally and challenges my character. I look forward to being married and staying faithful to her, learning to love her more and more each day. I would like male candidates who feel the same way as I do about the institution of marriage and don't think affairs are just boys being boys. And no, Republicans do not care more about family and they certainly don't keep themselves from having affairs -especially with children. No thank you.
Maybe we have to wait another 8 years until we find a candidate with true integrity.
