  • Nope. What you do in the bedroom and who you do it with doesnt have anything to do with the kind of job you do at work. It doesnt work that way in regular jobs why would it in politics?

  • OH Good Lord! I can't even imagine what the playing field would look like if infidelity were a disqualifier.

  • No, everyone makes mistakes and a person's personal life does not always directly affect their professional life. They should refrain from their stupidity and lack of self-control as an example for others looking up to them, but not disqualify them.

  • Yes.

    Shows you lack self respect, willpower and are lead by your selfish intentions. Who wants leader who can't even control his penis?

  • I really dont know.. I guess it shouldnt disqualify them, but it does show who they really are... How can someone still be respected if they do not have the willpower or respect to keep in in their pants
