Families should be left out of the political circus completely but unfortunately they never seem to be and some of the personal attacks levied against past candidates' families have been despicable.
Sometimes though there are personal things that make you kinda wonder about the candidate him/herself, and there are somethings that could indicate possible political influence.
Either way- I don't know why she's so appalled and offended by a reference to her husband's 'job'. It was a few years ago I believe when the story came out about his business of trying to convert gays into heterosexuals, he was even interviewed about it on mainstream news and why not? It's rather controversial
Nancy Reagan used to consult with an astrologer, she was so into it that people wondered if she'd tried to influence the Gipper's presidential decision-making. I think that was a natural question and one the people deserved to have answered.
As First Lady Hillary Clinton reportedly held seances, trying to speak to Eleanor Roosevelt lol. Michelle Obama's mother, who lives in the WH, supposedly dabbles in a little black magic. W reportedly had some rather interesting 'guests' visit the WH in the wee hours of the morn.
Families should be left OUT of the fray but you must admit some of these family tendencies ARE a bit strange
Bachmann-his story was news a few years ago-really I don't understand her huff.
Children should be left alone obviously, but what about where they go to school? Mayor Rhambo and Gov Chris Christie were recently questioned about the fact their children attend private school yet they were making decisions about budget cuts to public schools. Both reacted just like Michelle Bachmann did but was the question legit? Would they be less attuned to the needs of public schools because their own children go to private schools?
