Monday's Column: The NYT and Fred Thompson's "Trophy Wife"

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily takes a look, in part, at a New York Times piece that ran over the weekend called “Is America ready for a president with a trophy wife?”

The article is about Fred Thompson and his much younger wife, but I thought it deserving of further exploration as it concerns other presidents of the past as well.

Give a read to “Trophy wife at 1600” for more.

Update: A lengthy and occasionally humorous discussion about the column is happening over at FreeRepublic.
