    So what? It's not illegal... if they're both of the age of consent, let them do as they please. He sounds like a rabble-rousing idiot anyway.

    If the article is true and he's 6'5", then judging by the picture Mrs Thompson isn't exactly short herself. This leads me to believe she's actually a proper grown up, and as such they're perfectly entitled to be wed if they so choose.

    I'll save my righteous indignation for where it's better needed, if it's all the same.

    I don't think it's righteous indignation, it seems more of an excuse for MACDRIVE to post yet more images or links to pictures of women... a trait which hasn't gone unnoticed.

    I see... in that case, I'd forget about her MACDRIVE – she's clearly already taken and as discussed her husband's a bloody big bloke. :D

    She's obviously not his age, but she's no 18 year old either.

    Still, the image says "trophy wife".

    Those Hollywood people!! :D

    Whether for appearance or political views, they're the cream of this present crop. I'd sure rather see her in the White House than any of the other female critters. And he has a broader and more honorable background than the rest...

    13 years between me and my partner. There's a lot less difference in mindset between 25 and 50 than people think.

    Age has never meant anything to me either. It generally becomes irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. :)


    Now if only I could find someone before I get old :p

    Do you see me defending Obama? As a matter of fact, I'm one of the few here who has listed legitimate complaints about him. And to be fair, I also dissed Kucinich. But what does that have to do with how bad of a politician Thompson is, whether you agree with his politics or not. :confused:

    Surprised you didn't just fall back to the usual blaming Clinton when you (once again) have nothing. :rolleyes:

    I sure don't know where people are getting their definitions of cradle... but as she is almost a year older than me, I guess I'm young again.


    Who would have thought... 40 is the new 20! :D

    I was responding to the comment the poster made about Thompson's Senate record where he provided no examples of legislation - good or bad - to bad up his claim. I wanted to see if the poster felt as passionately about using that as a measure of a candidate's worth when it applied to Obama. I could have done the same thing with Senator Clinton, but as you pointed out I took a pass.:)

    They are adults, and they have the right to do as they please, but I'll say that I don't think much of these relationships. I've never personally observed a relationship with a huge age disparity that was one of equals. I'm sure it's possible, but I have my doubts.

    Why, milo, how sexist! :D:D:D

    There's hardly a 30-year-old woman alive who doesn't bunches know more about life and living than any 60-year-old man!
