Yet despite running away with the primary, Obama still had a formidable challenge in Republican Jack Ryan. Ryan was an impressive candidate - attractive and wealthy, with law and business degrees from Harvard. After making a fortune at Goldman Sachs, Ryan left to teach in an inner city school.

Yet Ryan had a problem - during the campaign, he was going through a messy divorce from actress Jeri Ryan, of “Star Trek: Voyager” fame. Details of Jeri Ryan’s testimony contained lurid details about Ryan forcing his wife to go to sex clubs in Paris. These details were toxic to Jack Ryan’s campaign, and he saw his poll numbers plummet - eventually, Republican leaders pressed Ryan to quit the race, fearing he was toxic to the statewide ticket.

That's right. If Barack Obama becomes President, we may owe it all to the actress who played "Seven of Nine". (Now if Jeri Ryan had said she blew Obama I would believe her.)

If Obama wins the nomination his opponent may be plagued with a sex scandal again. McCain screwed around with some lobbyist. Well, may have screwed around, but this falls under Buell's Law. He did it.
