This guy made his committment to his wife the centerpiece of his campaign and his political identity when he was having an affair. That fucker.
We have a society where any mistake at all is torn wide open and we all watch in bleed on national television. No wonder no one good wants to run. Because no one good is perfect. Stuff like this strikes the throat of empowerment and sends a very clear message to most Americans: You’ll never be good enough to run.
The difference between Edward’s affair and McCain’s divorce is timing and distance.
Speaking of timing, great timing having this come out now. Thanks John Edwards for hiding in that bathroom from the reporters and letting the convention get closer before coming clean.
