"Why do they show up?" asked blogger Amy Ephron on huffingt onpost.com. She proposed her own fantasy: "I just want one of them -- Hillary, Silda -- to stand on the steps of the White House, the governor's mansion, and stamp their foot and say, 'And another thing, I'm keeping the house."'|
来自huffingt onpost网站的博主Amy Ephron问道：“为什么她们要出现？ 我真希望哪怕有一位--希拉里也好或者Silda --能站在白宫台阶上、把脚一跺，说：”对了，房子要归我“
Yet many women also understood that Silda Spitzer was obviously in pain, and in the unforgiving glare of the public spotlight.
So while Donna Webster, a product development executive in Boston, wished the New York governor had been forced to face the music alone, she also empathized with his wife's choice, which she assumed was for the sake of her three daughters.
"I've been thinking about this constantly. I cringed when I saw her next to him," said Webster, 59. "I think he should have taken it like a man -- without her."
But, she added, "She was in crisis mode. She was like a mother bear protecting her cubs. When crisis hits, you do what you think you need to for your family. Later, you can step back and think about protecting yourself."
Amid the din, one of the most poignant voices defending Silda Spitzer was Matos McGreevey, who stood next to her husband, New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, in 2004 as he told the world he was gay, admitted an affair with a male aide and resigned.
在喧嚣中，一个替Silda Spitzer辩护的最强烈的声音来自Matos McGreevey。 新泽西州州长Jim McGreevey在2004年当他告诉世界自己是同性恋，曾同男助手有过绯闻并辞职时，作为他的妻子的Matos McGreevey一直站在自己丈夫身边。
"I'm reliving that moment and what it was like standing there next to Jim," Matos McGreevey told The Associated Press Monday night. "I wanted to embrace her and say, `Be strong, you'll survive this."'
In another interview on CNN, she referred to others who'd also stood by their spouses at moments of deep humiliation -- Clinton, during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and Suzanne Craig, the wife of Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, who was accused of soliciting sex in an airport bathroom.
在另一次同CNN的采访中，她也提到了那些曾当自己配偶----希拉里在克林顿，莱温斯基性丑闻时， 爱达荷州议员Larry Craig的妻子Suzanne Craig在丈夫在机场洗手间嫖娼---那些处于极度蒙羞境地时站在他们一旁的女性。
