Couric Asks Presidential Hopefuls About Intimate Affairs

Wednesday on CBS Evening News, Katie Couric asks 10 presidential contenders to weigh in on the issue of politicians making for strange bedfellows — namely, with people who aren't their spouse. According to the New York Daily News, when asked about the public's reservations about backing a cheater, Hillary Clinton says, "I can certainly understand [that]. That is their perfect right. But I think that would be a tough standard for most [figures] of American history to be able to meet." (Who might she be alluding to...?)Another qualified perspective came from Rudy Giuliani, who admits, "I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes in my life — and not just in that area. I try to learn from them so I don't repeat them." Citing his Catholic upbringing, he then said, "I mean, we're all sinners. We're all struggling.... We ask for forgiveness."
