WaPo's Yoffe on "The Other Halves" aka candidates' spouses & their influence

10 years ago

A little light reading courtesy of the Washington Post on a very light blogging day (Merry Christmas to all celebrating) that related to the BlogHer discussion about whether candidates, their spouses or both should address BlogHer's Voter Manifesto and interview opportunities.

How might her column have been different if she'd consulted BlogHer community members? The BlogHer community doesn't seem to lean toward relying on the spouse to be the deciding factor. And that would scuttle the lede of the column:

Could this be the first presidential election in which the public's feeling about a candidate's spouse is a deciding factor?

I think that would have been a good thing, frankly. I'm kind of tired of that question.

How about you?
