    In 2008 I happened to be writing in a coffee house when I overheard two young women (early twenties) discussing O. When I asked them why they were voting for him their reply was: "He's cute. He's younger."

    The explanation the historian gave was just that, an explanation of past events. I do not see that he advocated the sentiment but only that it aligned it with two people being one through Christian marriage. In that was a husband and wife voting would be two votes, not one. An individual would be unfairly represented because he was not married and would only have one vote to give. Sensible.

    Considering what I witnessed, there is a modicum of validity to the idea. But my wife, daughter, sister, sister-in laws, cousins, and female friends certainly do not represent that antiquated notion.
