Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? Definitely. He's a hypocrite. There he was counseling the president over Monica, and his girlfriend was giving birth to his child.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? Jesse's situation is worse. He's a minister.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? I don't think so, unfortunately. Hillary Clinton and Mrs. Jackson are in the public eye, so they have to put up with it. They're part of a group of people, the martyred wives of public figures.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? I don't think so. I'm not interested in other people's sex lives. It's really very boring.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? There's no real difference between these two cases—they both involve having an affair outside your marriage. I think the entire institution of marriage is outmoded.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? If cheating was within the parameters of the relationship, then obviously I could forgive, but I really wouldn't be in that kind of relationship in the first place.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? I could care less about his life.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? No, it's the same thing. A man will always be a man, and a man will never say no.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? I had to forgive someone for having an affair. We're young, and I'm not going to break my head over something like that. I don't think I would be able to forgive a second family, because it would be a constant reminder.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? No, but I've always had mixed feelings about him. I know he's doing great things, but he gets hysterical.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? No. We're primitive animals who want to have sex, but we live in a corporate culture and within Western moral standards.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? Yes, I've done it. You have to understand that it's the other person's issue, and then decide whether it's a relationship you want to be in at all.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? No. People make mistakes. People got over Clinton, and they'll get over Jesse Jackson.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? No. They both made mistakes, and it just happened to be the same mistake.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? Yes, I've done it. It wasn't easy, but we did it. We've been married for 23 years.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? No, it's his own mistake, and he'll pay for it.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? The difference is that Jackson owned up to it. Clinton made all the women involved look like cycle-liars, like psychos and stalkers.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? Every person deserves to be forgiven, but I don't know if every man deserves to be gone back to.

Has Jackson's revelation affected your opinion of him? I don't know. I think that's just what men do.

Is there any difference between the sexual misconduct of Jackson and Clinton? No. Sex outside of marriage is sex outside of marriage.

Could you forgive a spouse if you found out about a second family or an affair? It depends. I might throw some furniture or break a few things. It would be easier to forgive someone for making out with a girl at a party than for fathering a child with her.
