Candidates' spouses can get almost as much media attention as the candidates themselves. We'll find out how husbands and wives influence campaigns and elections, and look into the current crop of campaign spouses, including Bill Clinton, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards, and Judith Giuliani. Leonard talks to Gail Collins, New York Times columnist; also, Connie Schultz, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Cleveland Plain Dealer who took a leave of absence from the newspaper in 2006 to join her husband, now Senator Sherrod Brown, on the campaign trail. Schultz's new book is …and His Lovely Wife.
