While we're never surprised to hear that a married politician has stepped out on his wife with one or a million "other women"--often the type with unreasonably puffy bangs and the kind of teeth that beg for fluoride (or something)--it never fails to disappoint us to find out that another one of our potential leading men is, simply, a dog.
There are many great bloggers out there who were convinced until the last moment that Edwards was truthful and that this was a conspiracy hatched by Clinton or Obama to undo him. Edwards owes these folks an apology.
Not only is she battling terminal cancer, but she now must muster the strength to deal with the news that her husband had an affair with campaign videographer Rielle Hunter.
Edwards is caught having an affair and the overwhelming assumption is that his political career is over. How does that make any sense? Does he care less about poor people than he did yesterday?
Minutes after John Edwards admitted having an extramarital affair during the 2008 campaign, a supermarket tabloid published potentially explosive photos of an infant with a $400 haircut.
Obviously, it was the affair between Andrew Young and Rielle Hunter that caused this entire mess. John Edwards needs to stop being victimized by his former employees.
It seems to me that this is going to be a tsunami-sized scandal for the Democratic Party and right now the coming typhoon of press coverage is close to breaking.
It sure looks like Edwards is a hypocrite who misrepresented himself by showcasing his wife and kids so prominently in the campaign.
