Political Wives Standing Up
I second Ann Friedman's sentiment. Wives shouldn't be used as political props when their husband's get caught in a scandal.
Finally, I was glad to see neither Ensign's nor Sanford's wife did the ol' "stand by your man" routine at the mea culpa press conferences. Hope this is a new trend of politicians standing on their own when they apologize for their personal indiscretions.
Women don't need to go through the media humiliation to make their tarnished spouses look saintly. Imagine how Hillary Clinton felt knowing the nation was aware of her husband's infidelity? Debra Saunders wrote she will love to see political wives throwing their husbands' clothes out the front door. Saunders may get her wish.
