  • Would that be factoring in for the fact the the media is biased to the left, so will help promote a scandal where there is none?

  • Both sides are pretty well tarred. Politics and scandal have always walked together

  • It's 2011- The R's and D's are exactly the same. LOL at those who think "their" particular side is good, holy and chaste.

  • Ike fooled around during WW2 but not as President, JFK fooled around as President, Johnson was a notorious womanizer as President, Ted Kennedy killed a woman and his multitude of affairs were covered up although known by the press,Clinton's obsessional womanizing was totally brushed off. The close friendship to terrorists Bill And Bernadine Ayers and other Chicago communists by our current President was never explored...but FOIA request 24,000 Sarah Palin emails by the news media is of paramount importance. The scandal is as much the disintegration of our news coverage by reporters and journalists with vested interests in covering for THEIR men. Character matters and if the person is a serial scoundrel, what makes any sane person think they will not be susceptible to blackmail and special interests. They have already proven their lack of honesty and loyalty to the ones closest to them.

  • It's hard to tell but I'd call it a draw. It would be interesting to send some of today's aggressive media in to the Kennedy White House or some others. No party is untarnished at this point.
