I don't do politics usually but...

...for this one I will make an exception!

Nine years ago, John Edwards had this to say about Bill and the Monica Lewinsky affair: "I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter."

And now Edwards has confessed to his own "serious error in judgment" as he was preparing to run for president, an affair in 2006 that he said he admitted to his wife but had hoped to keep from the public, just in case it ruined his loving supportive family guy image no doubt!

Experts have said stress or a huge shock can play a part in the onset of some cancers. Well in March 2007 his wife announced the return of her cancer from remission and that it was incurable this time.

The first words that came into my head when I read about this - " You total scumbag John Edwards!"

Nuff said I think.

At this point, nothing surprises me. And it's happened so often that it has begun to lose its shock value.

When I worked in law, he was opposition counsel. I thought he was low down dirty slime then. I said it from the moment he got into politics. I hope Elizabeth has the sense to take him for all his money & leave his sorry ass by the curb. I think he can kiss his political career goodbye. NC will NOT be reelecting him.

Spot on, Sarah .. you've echo'd my feelings to a tee ... I must add one thing .. his disclaimer that he isnt out of politics because his lord and his wife have forgiven him ...

FEH

Sarah, I agree with you! While his poor wife Elizabeth was fighting for her life with cancer he's out cavorting around! Disgusting!!

I always thought his hair was far too "done" to trust him. What amazes me is how any of these guys (as it usually is) ever think they can get away with it. Women are attracted to them in the first place partly because of their high profile and they seem to think with their you know what's instead of their brains.
