A politician's private life is his business and the business of those who share it. Every time I read discussions like these, I see President Mitterrand's funeral cortege, in which his widow and his mistress walked side by side. Was that scandalous? To me, those two women sent a message that it was nobody's business why exactly they were there.
I wish Mr Norris no success in his campaign, because my preference is for somebody else. But it is sad to see how capable candidates are dumped for the wrong reasons, to make place for squeaky-clean eunuchs.
