Dear Mr. VP,
As I’m sure you know, CNN dug up some of your old columns a few days ago. Back when you were just a talk show host with a dream.
They’re fun. For example, one is called “Why Clinton Must Resign or Be Impeached.”
Let me quote you!
“Further, the Presidents repeated lies to the American people in this matter compound the case against him as they demonstrate his failure to protect the institution of the presidency as the ‘inspiring supreme symbol of all that is highest in our American ideals’. Leaders affect the lives of families far beyond their own ‘private life’. In the Bible story of Esther we are told of a king who was charged to put right his own household because there would be “no end of disrespect and discord” among the families of the kingdom if he failed to do so. In a day when reckless extramarital sexual activity is manifesting itself in our staggering rates of illegitimacy and divorce, now more than ever, America needs to be able to look to her First Family as role models of all that we have been and can be again.”
Yes, so — correct me if I’m wrong — but what you’re saying here is that presidents must be held to high moral standards in regards to their private conduct. Right?
So, for example, having an extramarital affair with an adult video star would not be acceptable?
