Of Sex And Leadership

Imagine the scene in good old Germany: The leader of the country, accused of abusing his power to the end of sexual harassment, gains a never before seen level of popularity. Absurd? Agreed, but absurd for what reason? Of course, Chancellor Kohl is not exactly as much the All American Boy type of man that Bill Clinton represents to his fellow countrymen - and women, but even if he were, and were involved in an affair the likes of Lewinskygate, the scandal would be none. But why so? The simple explanation for so striking a difference is mentality. While Americans are constantly making it their business to know everything about their leading men down by a science, European politics leave no place for the comparison of presidential candidates in matters of life expectancy, personal problems or, if push comes to shove, sexual preference. Remember the affair revolving around late French president Mitterands illegitimate daughter? Measured by American standards, his life as a politician would have been over.

Hes our man! Clinton? With the intern? In the Oval Office? Hes our man! - Meet the Presss Tim Russert on Southerners reactions to the Lewinsky affair Now, as the waves of Lewinskys medial omnipresence are flattening and the Oral Office jokes in the late night shows are becoming more and more seldom, America has, once again, returned to an almost European state of normality. But it is only a question of time until the next scandal finds its way up to the surface of D. C. s streets and into all those white buildings that constitute the heart of the United States. When that time has come, the nation will really need Gods blessing. God bless America, God bless internship, God bless privacy. ( ...
