I’m going to throw this out here. What is it with Mrs. Governor Spitzer (and Dina McGreevy or even Hillary)? I’m just an outsider looking in, but I am completely bumfuzzled about the ability of these wives who publicly stand beside partners who have so blatantly violated their trust and love. And that of their children.
Not to say I would abandon the man I had built a family with, but I simply could not stand beside him in front of people while he mumbled anything from a denial to a half-a*sed apology – all the while continuing to posture for public position. Sorry Mr. Governor, but you would need to stand alone and face the music, then come home to begin repairing the shattered aftermath.
The arrogance and hypocrisy of Eliot Spitzer is astounding. HIS position should be to protect and shield his wife, not drag her out in a public display of feigned unity. This repeated image just doesn’t sit well with my heart. I realize that many marriages survive infidelity, and what a feat that is. With God’s help, it would be a slow journey back to regain forgiveness, trust and respect.
These bogus political photo shoots and sound bites seem desperate to me – and they diminish the beauty, grace and honor of these women.
