Will Voters Accept Thompson’s Wife?
According to the New York Times, the possible candidacy of Fred Thompson, "the grandfatherly actor and former Republican senator from Tennessee, whose second wife is almost a quarter-century his junior," is raising questions that are "spurring debate in Internet chat rooms, on cable television and on talk radio: Is America ready for a president with a trophy wife?"
"The question may seem sexist, even crass, but serious people -- as well as Mr. Thompson’s supporters -- have been wrestling with the public reaction to Jeri Kehn Thompson, whose youthfulness, permanent tan and bleached blond hair present a contrast to the 64-year-old man who hopes to win the hearts of the conservative core of the Republican party. Will the so-called values voters accept this union?"
Personally, I don't believe in labeling any couple, but when you look at that picture, isn't it just plain icky?
