It seems that while our leaders are indeed human, and prone to the same weaknesses of all of us, the fact is, they should know they are living under a microscope and that getting away with an affair is highly unlikely. The higher they are, the harder they fall, too.

However, my hubby thinks it is pure "cocky" thought among those "in power" to think they can get away with anything, so they flaunt their power in affairs, financial foibles and every other way.

What do you think? Is having affairs more or less common among men and woman of "power and influence"?

Well this is an interesting topic...I never really bothered thinking of it though.

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say it would be less common because those sort of people are constantly in the public eye and image is half of the political war.

I think the only reason it might appear to be more common in them (politicians and others "in power") than it is in normal people is because when one of them gets caught, they're thrown into the public eye in a very negative light...but when normal people get caught, very little happens and aside from people directly involved somehow it usually gets very little recognition from everyone else.

I think it's about the same. The only difference is that when an affair comes to light dealing with a high-ranking official, it destroys their lives AND their career. Not that I support infidelity, but I just don't see how people's romantic crumblings are newsworthy unless it affected their office.

I'd say it's the same if not a bit higher. People behave oddly with stress, and the long hours gives them more opportunity

I'd say it's more common among high profile people, simply because there are far more opportunities for it to happen. You're only as celibate as your options. So they say.

I think it's none of our buisness either way. I wish it would just stay that way.
