Should private lives of public officials be off limits to public scrutiny?


Do public officials have a greater responsibility to live moral private lives than the average person? David Patraeus made poor private life decisions. Does that say something about his judgment? Was it John McCain who divorced his wife while she had cancer. Is that our business? Clinton entertained Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. There are examples across all political persuasions. Their high profile possessions are what made them "enticing." Don't they understand that?

    Thank you Bretsuki! What do you think about "with position comes responsibility?" If a person with sensitive information is blackmailed, the country could be compromised.
