It probably goes to being one of these types, though, right? Big, powerful men taking really stupid chances - Clinton, Spitzer, Edwards, Weiner - doing really stupid things. Wouldn't they be the last ones to admit it?
I suppose I'd think of it in terms of self-destructive, addictive behavior, in which a lot of unconscious stuff is happening, with denial the first veil.
