  • I think it's hard for most people to "keep it their pants". I just think politicians have more opportunity. Plus they are in a very ego-driven career.

  • Why is it so hard for ANY cheater to keep it in their pants? Don't know.

    I'd say with politicians, it's a power-trip. They reach a point when they start thinking they're invincible. That, and they think they deserve everything they want.

  • Who says it applies to ONLY politicians, can't that be said of MOST MEN!!!!!  What do you expect when everyone around us says that we are sexual creatures and that men focus ONLY on one thing and one thing only.   Politicians are just in the light more.

  • The same reason why SOME men, cheat! SOME men just can't stay faithful, period! While MANY other men, do! I think it's just that politicians are in the public eye (like celebrities) and so we know their every move, and it creates the appearance that ALL men are like the few that are smarmy!

  • The issue is two fold; they have power and money - very attractive to young girls. Secondly, they are in the public eye and bound to get caught, more so than your average cheating spouse. Maybe they're thrill seekers, or are just humans in bad marriages and not coping very well.

  • It could be that ALL men have trouble keeping it in their pants. AND with the moral decline in the world, more women are sleeping around,too. It is really sick.

  • Most PEOPLE seem to feel a need to cheat these days. It's not limited to men or to politicians. People have a lack of values and morals these days and if they have the time to cheat many do.

  • Because they are human. It happens all the time in all walks of life. It just seems worse when it's a public person. You don't hear about the 25 guys cheating on their wives that live in your town but when a politician or celebrity gets caught everyone knows. Nothing new.
