How acceptable is a polygamous president?
It seems to be normal in some parts of the world.
President to what? The president of, say, the local art society only has artistic standards and values to extol so his marital status is really and generally of no consequence.
The president of a country has certain moral values to extol which brings in the question of marital morality, a president, if married, of a monomogomous country would, at least, have to follow that principle. Generally polygamous socities display an element of choice so it isn't essential to follow the code of polygamy and stioll be a role model for the country's values.
Of course the whole of that doesn't address the other problem - just because a country has a moral code of monogomamy, is that necessarily right? Another story methinks.
Well it isn't normal here in the US. So I would say not acceptable at all in our culture.
In other cultures where it is the norm, fine.
Who is polygamous? As long as this person can swear that his/her religious beliefs will not interfere with performance: I'd be for it.
As to the moral values, we're electing a person who is to do a job; I'm sure there have been POTUS who are less than moral. Bill Clinton did a great job-but morals?
John Edwards-morals? What a skirt chaser!
Not all of our founders weren't known for morals, but they were God-fearing Christians. I'd rather have a GOOD person in an elected office than one who thinks with his zipper!

Here's my take on the question: I think that polygamy could be a good thing provided that all parties to the equation are responsible and ethical. That means that parents must provide for the emotional, economic, educational support of their children and of each other. That said, let me state...
