That is the question. Or asked another way: Have we ever elected someone who is totally faithful for the highest office in the land?
History, apparently, sides with the infidel: Jefferson, Harding, Roosevelt (the good one), Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and now Romney. Okay, Mitt Romney might not have been sexually unfaithful but the jury is out on his financial fidelity.
We should wonder how we can trust Romney with our trillions of dollars if he cheats with his measly millions. In fact, I might not even hire him to work for me. I don't know that I can trust him with all the money we make at AshleyMadison.com
Which leads me to why we conducted a survey of our three million AshleyMadison.com American female members and asked them:
- Which presidential candidate would you be more likely to have an affair with?
- Whom are you more likely to vote for in the upcoming election?
I can't help but wonder what other decisions of significance we make based, not on the values that would ultimately benefit us in the long term, but instead originate from some blindingly biological place.

Being a straight man, I wouldn't have an affair with either one of them but I would have been more likely to have voted for Romney if he had had an affair instead of being financially unfaithful.
