    Throughout in history most powerful people always enjoy little harmess (except for perhaps his/her spouse) sex outside of marriage. It was only in the last 20-30 years that so-called puritan find any every faults with your oppornents made it like a crime while actual crimes that harms millions may be overlooked. I would anytime have president like Clinton (remember the prosperity) with little bit of ciger activites than family-value shouting Bush. JFK and MRK had so much affairs but who care?
