Quote Of The Day - Keith Ablow

"I want to be coldly analytical, not moralize, here. I want to tell you what Mr. Gingrich’s behavior could mean for the country, not for the future of his current marriage. So, here’s what one interested in making America stronger can reasonably conclude, psychologically, from Mr. Gingrich’s behavior during his three marriages: 1) Three women have met Mr. Gingrich and been so moved by his emotional energy and intellect that they decided they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with him. 2) Two of these women felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married. 3 ) One of them felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married for the second time, was not exactly her equal in the looks department and had a wife (Marianne) who wanted to make his life without her as painful as possible. Conclusion: When three women want to sign on for life with a man who is now running for president, I worry more about whether we’ll be clamoring for a third Gingrich term, not whether we’ll want to let him go after one." - Fox News commentator Dr. Keith Ablow, previously known here for his vicious attacks on Chaz Bono.

UDDATE: JMG reader Duncan notes that Ablow was singing a different tune just a few months ago.
There is absolutely no data, I`m telling you, I don`t believe that the particulars of how you behave in your marriage as to your fidelity predict your ability to lead, predict your loyalty to the country or predict anything else upon which Americans would want to vote. So, they may have opinions about it and feelings about it but it`s just that. It`s just that they`re mad at him. It has nothing to do with whether the person would make a good President. Being a hypocrite is a problem.
