Jackie O was a beautiful and smart woman! why do you think JFK cheated on her?

Jackie certainly was smart and beautiful, and she was elegance personified.  I don’t know why JFK cheated on her.  I don’t know why anyone cheats on anyone.  Why does Anthony Weiner stray from Huma Abedin, who is WAY out of his league?  

I don’t know.  And, I am not allowed to judge because I have not always been perfect in relationships in my life.  It would be disingenuous of me to pretend otherwise.

All I can say is that we are all imperfect beings and, as Kanye West, has put it:  "See I can have me a good girl and still be addicted to them hood rats/And I just blame everything on you, at least you know that’s what I’m good at"

(That’s right, I quoted lyrics from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy while answering a question about Presidents — is anyone really surprised?)

As for cheating, It’s not good.  It’s not right.  It’s not something we should be proud of.  But it’s real-life, whether you’re a President, a rapper, or a guy who writes about Presidents while listening to rappers.

"Ey, hey, yo, we made it to Thanksgiving,
So, hey, maybe we could make it to Christmas.
She asked me what I wished for on my wish list,
Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?”

I’m sure I’ll miss a few.  My favorites were Pusha T’s Fear of God II: Let Us Pray EP, Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch The Throne, Royce da 5’9”s Success Is Certain, Bad Meets Evil’s (Royce and Em) Hell: The Sequel, Common’s The Dreamer/The Believer, and Brotha Lynch Hung’s Coathanga Strangla (I’m still a Sactown kid at heart with love for the Garden Blocc crew!).

A few others that I felt were amongst the best: Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers, Raekwon’s Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang’s Legendary Weapons, X-Raided’s Unforgiven Volume 3: Vindication (like I said, loyalty to the Blocc), WC’s Revenge of the Barracuda, and Talib Kweli’s Gutter Rainbows.  Right now, I’m really looking forward to B.o.B.’s Strange Clouds.
