Is there a word for something that has the oposite meaning of ad hominem?

Basically is there a word that can be defined as “Agreeing with a particular argument based on a person’s character rather than the argument itself” ?

While we’re at it, does the “Hitler wears pants” argument count as a ad hominem? (Hitler wore pants, you wear pants, therfore anything you say can’t be valid.)
