The marriages of the candidates

A guest blogger on Atrios has a love letter to Teresa Heinz Kerry and John Kerry.

The married people I have beer with on a regular basis have (from what I can tell) healthy, adult marriages based on like and mutual respect, and nothing warms me up to somebody faster than that person praising their spouse.
I have no idea what goes on in the Bushes' marriage, nor, for that matter, in the Kerrys'. But I like what I see of the two of them, that's for sure.


Sounds reasonable enough, of course. Certainly, in my hoity-toity blue voting world, the marriage model is that of one between equals and based on love and respect.
But when it comes to the judgements that will be laid on the Kerrys for having such a relationship from the "I'm all for equal pay for equal work, but..." crowd, well, just look at how the very sight of Hillary and Bill Clinton hanging out together causes the vast majority of right wing pundits' testicles to pull directly up into their bodies in fear. The idea of an affectionate marriage between equals scares the crap out of the culture warriors.
Luckily, Teresa Heinz Kerry seems like she'll handle the suspicions that a woman who commands respect must be a lesbian and a Satan-worshipping witch well. She strikes me as someone that doesn't suffer fools.
