    Are the American people really going to give a majority vote to a candidate whose wife would be the first adulterer as first lady?

    It will only take one comment by a candidate or surrogate and the media will explode into a frenzy about Callista the adultress first lady.

    Republicans have earned this scorn.

    •  The only reason she would be (0+ / 0-)

      is that Rachel Donaldson Jackson died before Andrew Jackson was inaugurated. Not that it was exactly her fault - she didn't know her evil thought-to-be-but-not-really ex was going to run a nasty sting operation.

      But, believe me, the 1828 campaign was vicious and merciless. "Adulteress" was one of the nicer things they called the poor woman.

    •  The first divorcee president was a Republican (0+ / 0-)

      Ronny had no issue whatsoever getting the evangelicals to line up.  And while McCain had issues with the base, his previous marriage and infidelity was not the biggest.

      These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel. Abraham Lincoln
