Would he do it again,  My feelings are the same, going in a different way,  DRUGS  Would Obama do it again?  He admitted he did them,  He enjoyed them. Is he clean now?  He has plenty of sources in Chicago.  
If you are going to look at the past, look at it with your eyes open. Both directions, if not, you run the risk of getting blindsided.

The answer is always NO, Until the question is asked.

The problem is, is that we have come to expect such a scenario. Do you TRULY want to know about Jennifer Lopez's private life?

Without wishing to sound trite Karilea, I might point out that Ms Lopez is not running for the position of "leader of the free world". ~cough, splutter~

I agree with you about the intrusiveness of the media into private lives, fed, regrettably, by the insatiable voyeurism of the intellectually and/or morally bankrupt.  

There is however at least one occasion where such intrusiveness is not only justified imo, but actually necessary.  That is where one person is asking a nation/state/whatever to give him/her powers that will determine millions of lives.  The more power he/she wields the more I think every aspect of his/her previous life should be put under scrutiny.  I think that's what you meant?

I am never quite sure what you are saying Karilea because you kinda skip around posing questions, then knocking your own suggestions down, then building them up again - asking who people want as President, then being coy when asked yourself!  So, I think I've interpreted what you said correctly, but if I haven't, I'm sorry.

Yep, Obama mentioned experimenting with drugs in HS and college in his book Dreams from My Father, which, btw, is an amazing read you shouldn’t miss. I wonder why the topic is not more of an issue, you hardly ever see it mentioned. Perhaps because he was young and youthful indiscretions are more often forgiven that middle age philandering? Or could it be that compared to Bush’s drug use, 20 plus years of heavy alcohol use, his admitted marijuana use and suspected cocaine use, it hardly seems worth mentioning?
