Salon tracked the number of wives per Republican presidential candidate from 1988-2012 and found that “the divorce rate is soaring.” For 2012, it counted Republicans who either expressed an interest in running or participated in an overt campaign activity. The party now has four potential candidates–Rudy Giuliani, Buddy Roemer, Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich (the latter's past adultery driven by his passion for America)–who have been married three times.
