About The Book
Kirkus Reviews says, “A journalist explores the motivations and emotional constructs of nine political wives who chose to stay in their marriages — in some cases, only for a while — after being confronted with their husbands’ infidelities …. Skillful prose makes the dishy profiles an engaging read …. A lively political book ….”
Hillary Clinton couldn’t have known how her husband’s high-profile philandering would play out. Would he be rehabilitated in the public eye? She took the gamble. Had she left the marriage, today she might be the spurned wife of a retired politician instead of the first American woman to head a major party ticket.
Looking back on the path chosen by the nine political wives profiled in this book, we have the evidence to see a pattern — as old as the dynastic maneuverings of England’s medieval queens. The women married to the “royalty” of our times — politicians — make similar cold calculations in order to hold onto their “thrones” and their family’s history-making potential.
After covering politicians for decades, acclaimed columnist Anne Michaud switched her gaze to the women behind the cheating men. Drawing from multiple sources that span the Roosevelts’ marriage to the more recent scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin (wife of “sexter,” Anthony Weiner), “Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives” argues that when it comes to the “power behind the throne,” women in the limelight weigh the risks and rewards. They remain loyal to their men, because of complex, often unconscious forces.From mapping a path to power to laudable notions of holding the family together, Michaud examines the uniquely challenging Faustian bargains that political wives grapple with, even as the public spotlight illuminates their every move.
