And for best politician in a cheating role, the award goes to:
New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey
President Bill Clinton
Presidential Candidate Gary Hart
Reverend Jimmy Swaggart (OK not really a politician, but he definitely had a constituency and the people's trust.)
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
Senator Larry Craig
Congressman Mark Foley
The list can go on and on and as far back as recorded time. After all, Caesar had a wife and Cleopatra too.
Is it power?
Is it ego?
Lying about it?
Denying it? (which will depend on what definition is most convenient)
Paying for it?
Breaking the law?
All of it?
And where are the powerful women on this list?
Did Margaret Thatcher have a Lord or two on the side?
Did Madeline Albright cross the moral line?
Does Condeleeza Rice secretly send salacious emails?
Did Hill pay Bill back with an intern of her own?
Does Queen Elizabeth step out on Phillip when he’s up at Balmoral hunting something or other?
What’s the deal?
