Writer's Block: A political affair
Do you think the public has a legitimate right to know about a politician’s personal/romantic life? When, if ever, do you think a politician’s personal history is relevant to his/her ability to perform in office?
Somewhat, because a politician's personal life can affect his/her performance and integrity in office.There's a reason an employee of a business may be told to "not bring your personal problems in to work", because it affects your judgment, performance and attitude. As a public figure, a politician's life is an open book whether he likes it or not, because the constituents need to know if there are things that are going to affect how he gets the job done, or not, as the case may be.
