22. Look at their top 2 candidates
McCain only had one divorce - but he divorced the wife who raised his kids alone while he was in VN to marry (within months) a 24 year old heiress. I say that beats 2 amicable divorces (which I'm heard his were).

Guilliani had 2 as well - the first when he realized that his wife of 14 years was a first cousin, not a second. Henry VIII has nothing on Guilliani in terms of nerve. The second had her divorce announced to the press before she was told.

My favorite candidate is not Feingold - but this is no reason not to support him.
