he may have had a good mind, even a great mind--

he may have said some powerful things, but give *me* John Adams, a good husband and father--

yes, I have always been troubled over Jefferson's personal life and his ownership of slaves.

So, what is new?

And your last line is where I am not libertarian--

I can't respect someone who lives like that, even if a spouse 'approves'; apparently hers did--

but I don't believe he was as licentious as she.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
