The Friday news dump almost always brings something interesting and today we learn that former presidential candidate John Edwards cheated on his wife.
Every Democrats first thought after the initial shock I'm sure was "Whew! We dodged a bullet on that one!"
But how could Edwards be so stupid?? How could he go out and get all these people to commit to his campaign for the presidency knowing he had this ticking timebomb on his person? Did he really think it would never go off?
I'm afraid Ann is probably right, we've probably lost him as an attorney general in the Obama administration. That's a real shame. But if Elizabeth Edwards is still up to it maybe she could do the job instead.
Sex scandals are the real third-rail of American politics these days. It's hard to believe that so many politicians still play fast and loose on that issue.
