Wha...? So you can bang an intern, just as long as you keep it secret? You can swear, just as long as you're not making a public speech?
How does that work? Either its morally right or its wrong. I'm baffled by your argument especially concerning Clinton. In the midst of a conversation, Kerry actually talks like Bush and Cheney talk behind closed doors and how most people talk, and that's on the same level as being pro-adultery?
Clinton having sex with an intern was way more indicitive of condoning that behaviour then if he had not banged one but came out and said, "Gentlemen, go bang some fucking interns, it'll help your marriage."

I think the point is - it's okay to remind us they're "average, everyday Joes or Janes", just as long as it's not part of their leadership persona. And doing it deliberately is some how not what "we" look for in leadership.
Personally, I prefer the honesty and directness, but that's just me
I tend to start with the premise that all politicians are morally corrupt unless they prove otherwise, because few morally whole people would be willing to go through and deal with the amount of crap that someone needs to go through to get elected. You have to be willing to compromise things that you might not be willing to compromise under any other circumstances - unless you are extremely lucky in who comprises your constituents.
