Though some may still raise eyebrows over Cuomo's relationship with the Food Network star, it's raised nary a public whisper from political rivals - or religious leaders.
Regardless of demographic trends, politicians are a bit of a special class.
Whether or not their constituents are getting married, men in politics have long seen it neccessary to be the perfect picture of domestic bliss, which means signing the marriage certificate—even if, say, they're fooling around with an intern, staffer, prostitute, man, Craigslist stranger, South American beauty, or their cell phone. No one seems to have blinked much of an eye at Walsh, Bloomberg, and Cuomo's lack of formal committment.
Maybe that's because Massachusetts and New York are liberal states, or maybe it's because all three men seem quite committed to their partners, more so than lots of politicians who've taken the walk down the aisle.
