    Lucky for rivals like Romney, Palin also faces an ongoing family soap opera that continues to undercut her political message. Bristol Palin broke up with Levi Johnston, the father of their child. The two are not getting married, as announced during the presidential campaign. Johnston's mother faces a drug possession trial. His sister accused Bristol Palin of calling her family "white trash." After giving one interview in which she said abstinence is "not realistic at all," Bristol Palin is now speaking out as a teen advocate for abstinence.

    None of that should matter. But family issues do matter, especially for female candidates. When it comes to temperament, accomplishments, and work/family balance, women always walk a line. The line Palin walks as a working mother of five and new grandmother continues to trip her up as a presidential candidate.

    Um, since Palin is basically running on family values, the way her family functions is relevant!
