However, as a history major who has a fascination with the great figures in history, great men and women who did amazing things I'm so very impressed with ones who did it and were great leaders. Ones that exhibited great leadership and part of that is doing it while retaining high moral standards. For example leaders like the Roman general cincinatus, Alexander the Great, george Washington, Lincoln, FDR (and yes I know he probably had an affair), Winston Churchill.

Not all leaders need be scumbags, nor should we merely blow off there faults as being "human". Especially if those faults are pretty heinous. I think leaders should be held to higher standards.
But that's just me.
We're blessed when we have men of Churchill's calibre to lead us. How many of those are alive at any one time, though?

And I'm grown perhaps too cynical, and too willing to settle for adequate over excellent.

Id be remiss if I didn't mention that Fox has fired Bill O'Reilly.

If even a fraction of the charges against him have merit-then good riddance I say and good job to the Murdochs for finally trying to clear up their culture of sexual harassment. although its taken too long.

Taken way too long as FOX had been paying off on charges against him for years....but better late then never

but fear not.. someone will hire him....I give it 2-3 months till he is back on the air

It is rumored that Eisenhower had an affair with his secretary during WWII. I believe she wrote a book about it called "Four Years Under Ike."

Forget the charges. He should have been fired for being an obnoxious ***hole.
