There's a saying that power, as well as corrupting, is sexy.
I think we can safely consign that one to the dustbin of history, can't we? I mean, you can't exactly call Margaret Thatcher, John Major or Angela Merkel erotic in any shape or form - although I have heard a rumour that Angela Merkel is the type of woman who likes nothing more than giving her male compatriots a good hard seeing-to with a strap-on.
This explains the real reason for the departures of Franz Münterfering and Edmund Stoiber, both with somewhat pained expressions, as well as the big grin on Guido Westerwelle's face.
And don't mention John Major's affair - for God's sake, it was with Edwina Currie, and let's face it, this is the man who ran away from the circus to become an accountant.
Of course, when Clinton was caught shagging he got chucked out by the USA, which prompted the french to point out that as far as they were concerned, it was a good enough reason to let him in for a third term. None of us listened to them, though, which is why they went and elected Nicholas Sarkozy to prove the point.
