    In absolutely no way was I inferring she was "unattractive" - - young eye candy is typically taken to mean someone who is physically attractive and someone whose only value is being "attractive" - they are much younger, inexperienced, expected to keep their mouth shut, be deferential and be defined by who they are married to. (See Calista Gingrich, though I don't find her physically attractive - at all - but others would call her that).

    There is no question that some of the most beautiful, attractive women are not "eye candy" - - drop dead gorgeous women who have strong beliefs, experience in lots of areas, have tremendous meaning beyond their S.O. are not "young eye candy"  Perhaps I should have used a more precise term - but I hardly meant "Mrs. Kerry is unattractive."

    I really hate it when people put words in someone's mouth that infer anything but especially frustrating when it is taken to an absurd blanket statement.

    •  I think Heinz Kerry is beautiful (6+ / 0-)

      I don't think you have to be young to be beautiful.

      She's her own person with independent interests. That contributes to her beauty. And she has never been concerned with holding her tongue. That makes her super attractive.

      I have never seen the phrase Calista Gingrich and attractive in the same sentence though I've seen the word helmet associated with her name and what rests on her shoulders.

      •  The definition of "eye candy". . . (0+ / 0-)

        Especially for a second wife is almost always of someone young, nowhere did I say that someone had to be young to be beautiful

          My comments are in praise of Teresa Heinz Kerry, a woman I have long admired.

          You are entitled to your opinions and I do not challenge that.
