Response to Re: John Piel
It matters a lot how many wives. Someone with a lot of wives shows more concern with themselves and their own self gratification and less concern about the welfare of others. Nowdays the only reason why a man has multiple wives is because he tires of the early ones and grabs new ones who catch his eye. That is not a trait that suggests that such pollies will really think of public welfare if they becomes MPs. More likely they will spend their time on the public payroll trying to find ways to get more money that can support their multiple wives as well as securing a comfortable overseas retirement for themselves and whatever wife turns out to be the favourite one.
Same thing with drinking. Those who drink regularly may be alcoholics but at the very least show lack of the kind if discipline and self control that makes up the best possible leaders.
