I don't find it particularly unusual. The political field has been like this for a while.
Nixon lost it by sweating during a televised debate with Kennedy.
Gerald Ford fell down once. Who would vote for him?
One of the funniest critiques I've ever seen of a candidate was a picture of Dan Quail, holding a pumpkin next to his head. That was all.
Dukakis lost it by having his picture taken in a tank, to the point that many people said the Kerry biochemical suit picture was his "Dukakis Moment".
I think it's fair that candidates personal decisions and accomplishments should be vetted before getting so far as to be nominated president.
Withholding information and covering up for him only leads to President Pig in a Poke.
Let 'em duke it out. To be honest, I'm going to be looking at their voting records and viewpoints before I vote, I don't care who married who or what
college they went to.
It's normal for the sitting president to be the incumbent candidate after the four year mark. It's the eight year mark you have to worry about.
