The Good Wife role has become out-of-date.
The expiration date on its shelf life happened when fictional Alicia stood next to fictional Peter at the kick-off of that popular television series "The Good Wife."
More importantly, politics has become too volatile and downright crazy for anyone to pay attention to what wifey says about hubby.
So, we can only smirk when we bear witness to the tearful affirmation of Ashley Estes Kavanaugh. She lets us know that Brett has not only character but heart. Here are more details from the Daily Mail.
An analogous situation is the loyalty Julie Chen is demonstrating. In public, she is 100% supportive of her hubby Les Moonves, cast-out of CBC Paradise because of alleged sexual misconduct.
While some might consider it noble of Chen to stick by Moonves, that has nothing to do with much.
Moonves stands alone in the court of law (if it comes to that after the two law firms make their report to the CBS board) and the court of public opinion (he's already focusing on brand rehab).
Let's face it: Marriage means less today than it had when Hillary Clinton stood by her man during his first campaign for the U.S. Presidency - and later during the Lewinsky meltdown. After all, the U.S. President is a man who has been divorced twice.
Since marriage is no longer sacred, the spousal "endorsement" has lost plenty of its former value.
Takeaway for politics: Leave wifey out of the bad whatever.
