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.
