Which Politician Do Experts Say Needs Therapy The Most?
A survey of YourTango Experts shows which politician could benefit most from a dose of therapy.

In this country, we've seen enough political scandals to make Jenna Jameson look like a saint. From oral in the Oval Office to semi-nude photos on Twitter, politicians have been making headlines for their marital problems, infidelity and momentary lapses in judgment for the past several years. But, who's the worst offender who could benefit from a professional's services?

We recently surveyed our organization of 1,100 psychotherapists, counselors, coaches and relationship professionals—otherwise known as YourTango Experts—to get their input on such topics as why couples fight and how therapy affects relationships12 Myths You Shouldn't Believe About Therapy, Sex & Infidelity

When asked, "Which politician is most in need of therapy?" 31 percent of our Experts agreed former California "Governator" Arnold Schwarzenegger could use a session on the couch. His 25-year marriage to Maria Shriver came to a scandalous end in 2011 when it was revealed that he had an affair and fathered a love child with one of their household staff members. 

Right on the heels of Arnold was Newt Gingrich—the unfaithful presidential candidate who prefersWhi open marriage—with 30 percent of Experts suggesting he would benefit from therapy.

Following Gingrich were John Edwards, Anthony Weiner and Sarah Palin.

Oddly, not one Expert voted for Bill or Hillary Clinton. Perhaps it's because they've remained a strong, united political couple—at least on the surface—despite the legacy of the infamous Monica Lewinsky incident. Experts Say Heidi Klum And Seal Need Therapy
