Okay, no traction on the post before (which was and is a serious question -- thanks, Scott, for your input).

I'm reading a novel, Pearl Harbor, by Newt Gingrich and some other guy. Good read, very detailed. In explaining who The Newt is to my wife, I said he was a presidential hopeful, but because he had an affair while trying to impeach Clinton on his affair, that he wouldn't have a decent shot at winning. Hypocrisy being a bad thing, after all.

She pointed out that it's a shame that we worship celebrities for doing the very things we vilify in politicians. It's amazing the incredible dissonance our culture indulgence in without shaking apart.

Guiliani, on the other hand, has not only had an affair, but has a soap opera personal life, but it's not slowing him down in the polls. Has he somehow managed to bridge the celebrity/politician gap, getting it both ways? Of course, if he runs against Hillary neither can go after the other's personal life without inviting a mutual attack... kind of an electoral MAD. By having so much mud on both sides, would this end up a clean fight?

May we not find out...

I like it when you call me MRS. YOUNG! And you know who your friends are, they just might not always admit it to other people, though. ;)
