<< I do not know her reasons, but it is not normal behaviour in my opinion. >>

Exactly right. It's strange, and you have to wonder what's going on....Dean likes to hide the situation behind this "I won't drag my wife around to be a prop for my campaign" stuff, but I find that less to be than convincing.

After all, Dean looks twitchy enough as it is.

Oh fer cryin' out loud!!

When Clinton ran for (and was later elected) president, we heard countless criticisms of Hillary, an intelligent independent thinking woman who was constantly castigated by a number of conservatives as being too involved with her husband's job and for being too much in the public eye and too forceful in her statements.

Now we have Howard Dean's wife, who stays out of the spotlight and has her own life (as a respected physician, apparently), and what do we hear? "it is not normal behaviour".

Sorry that you don't find it "normal" or find Dean's words about it "less [to be (sic)] than convincing". Don't tell me, if a candidate has a wife that is a stay at home wife and leans on her husband's shoulder all the time, we'd probably hear something about that, too.

Of all the slimy, repugnant, ill-considered, close-minded, outright sleazy innuendos. I mean:"A bad relationship with one's spouse can adversely affect a person in a number of ways"? Yeah, it's not enough to attack their political beliefs or make the standard comments about Dean being less-than honest or that he'll lead the country to ruin and so on. No, now we have to attack his marriage because, well, because apparently he doesn't have an (R) after his name.

"Mr. Cynic" my *ss. Try Mr. "I worship the current administration but will spare no effort to denigrate any of their perceived opponents".
