6. Can someone tell me when the alleged head kissing happened? IMHO, if its been in the last 2 or 3

 

yrs (post me-too) then that does illustrate a certain tone-deaf ness on his part deserving of criticism, but shouldn't disqualify.

If it was before Trump, before me-too, then just frickin FERGET ABOUT IT.

I say this as a woman who is a fierce defender of women's rights - the most fundamental of which is to inhabit our bodies and be safe. Im old enough to remember before there was the concept or a name for "date rape." It used to be the woman's fault for being there and allowing it to happen. That changed maybe, oh, 20-30 yrs ago. Sexual harassment has been addressed in the workplace for about that long.

These other more ambiguous things , the unwanted flirty touching and such happening in a social setting - that's only now coming under scrutiny and perhaps some cultural shifts around it only now happening.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
