Why does the woman always stand by her man?

These speculations seem to me to almost entirely miss the point. It really isn't any of the public's business what Mr Spitzer's relationship was with his wife. That kind of analysis is just fuel to the fire of media's prurient interest in the private lives of public figures we have seen in recent years.

The issue is ultimately about whether or not Mr Spitzer can now provide assurance to the public that he has the integrity to do the job and it seems to me that he can't. But it's purely a matter of professional ethics and integrity. Holding forth on the state of their marriage is really quite unnecessary.

Given that this is a man who had presidential aspirations, his actions are all that much stupider.

I agree completely with this, and in cases of marital infidelity involving politicians made public, I always feel most sorry for the children - there seems to be no way to shield them from the ugliness of what would be a private matter between spouses if it involved someone in the private sector.

Ok, thanks. I should've known that even blindness can't be that simple, but it also makes sense; if I just think of how awful I see without glasses or lenses.

Some people sell out their dignity for the hopeful retention of power:

I agree completely. I think no one can ever really understand the dynamics of a marriage they're not actually in.

I agree. Considering how few Democrats there are with an actual backbone, it is a real shame that he had to throw away everything for this crap.

I hope the high-priced whores were worth it.

If I were Eliot Spitzer's wife, I wouldnt have gone to that press conference with him. I would have held my own to go tell him to fuck himself.

In fact most legally blind people do have some sense of light, or very little sight. Few are actually living in complete darkness.
