    I really can care less if Clinton got a blow job in the white house. It shouldnt be none of our business. Of course he lied to congress is another story but it should have never come to that

    I dont care if Hermain Cain has 50 girlfriends that is between him and his wife.

    I dont care if Newts personal life.

    All I care about is if they can get our country out of the mess we are in. Does your employer ask you if your having an affair. The media needs to stay out of the bedrooms of the candidates.

    yeah, amazing how those kind of things are of no importance to republicans once the thing they use to attack dems on is suddenly being used against them.......

    reminds me of how smokoing pot was a big deal to repubs until they got a candidate who did it, then no big deal.......

    same for adultery and draft dodging.........

    I am a Rep but I do have some moderate stances. It makes me human. I do not agree with everything a REP does or says..

    We are forced to decide on a candidate based on his/her words...and in an effort to determine if the candidate is honest and can be considered to be true to his/her words, we must be able to judge the character of the candidate.

    I disagree...the actions of a candidate, whether personal or not, should be fair game.

    If it were found out that a candidate discriminated against minorities while running his own business...wouldnt you want to know? If he were a male chauvanist and has actions in his past making it quite clear that he considered women second class citizens...wouldnt you want to know?

    Now...dont get me wrong...we all make mistakes in life...some of us regret them and learn from them and others have no regrets....I am the first to consider one who errs and admits it and learns from it as one that deserves to be viewed in a better light.....

    Yes...Newt made a few mistkes in his personal life...but I bleieve he has learned from them and is worthy of serious candidate consideration.

    As a matter of fact...he has been the one I have been saying will win the nomination since his days of sigle digits in the polls.

    So... what you are saying is that those women who came out to say that they were sexually harassed by Cain should be sued for libel because you think it should be off limits?

    That the other women who admitted an extramarital affair with the guy should have her right to free speech denied? What's wrong with letting the truth come out on ANY candidate and letting the people decide?
