Could Modesty Influence an Election?

I don't know much about Fred Thompson yet. This is not a comment on him or his wife's positions or eligibility. But as I read this article the thought that struck me was not an age difference, but a modesty issue. I won't pretend that the age difference would not have still been an issue, particularly among those of opposing views, but could these comments have been avoided? All politics aside, in a culture of immodesty it was a simple reminder that the way that you dress is still important. To God, to your husband, to yourself - and maybe even to an election.

Well said.

Tales such as these just leave me befuddled. So much for the wife of his youth. There's a lesson from Proverbs 5 in here somewhere.
