"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

This true story starts out by saying, in its byline,  "You shouldn't care about political wives." Hmm, troubling I think, but it is a story of concern involving political officials and their wives. It brings to question, just how much will a political wife take before they shoot their husband? More about that in a moment. First the story Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner - Ms Weiner stated, “I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him... But I do very strongly believe that is between us and our marriage.”  This article says we should forget the political wife - should we?  http://www.newrepublic.com/article/114110/huma-abedin-ignore-political-wives

The stories of President Bill Clinton, Senator David Vitter, Senator Larry Craig, Governor Eliot Spitzer; Governor Mark Sanford;  http://www.newrepublic.com/article/114104/video-history-sad-plight-political-wife

"Silda Wall Spitzer became an icon of humiliated political wives everywhere after this 2008 press conference, in which her thousand-yard stare did little to endorse Spitzer as a human,"

THIS WIFE SAID NO MORE, SHE SHOT THE MAYOR, HER HUSBAND.  "Levette Crespo was released from police custody hours after fatally shooting her husband, Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo Sr., during a family fight at their home..."  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/bell-gardens-calif-mayor-shot-article-1.1958703

Why Women Stay: Understanding The Battered Wife Why is it that many woman don’t leave their abusive partners? Once the reasons they don’t are understood, it becomes clear why battered women so often react with shame and confusion when asked to explain their behavior and why it is so inappropriate to conclude that if they were up against real abuse they would leave. Actually, the opposite is true. Let me explain.  http://annveilleux.com/articles/why-women-stay-understanding-the-battered-wife/

The psychology and physiology of the cheating man: 1) Give me more, sensation seeker; 2) Risk Taker; 3) Power Hungry Egotist, invincible; 4) Hormonal, "second child hood."  http://www.newsweek.com/cheating-mans-brain-83569
