Doesn't this seem to be begging the question, somewhat? I always figured that people in power had affairs and broke the law as much as the average person...we just don't hear about it on CNN when Fred Huxley from down the road cheats on his wife.


Fred Huxley from down the road doesn't dictate to his subordinates how they should be leading their lives, that's the big difference. It's the double standards that are at issue, not the lack of standards!
