Okay, we’re swimming in the murky waters of political intrigue, this morning, folks. John Edwards—VP candidate in ’04 and the Man with the Best Eco Plan in ’08…has admitted to an affair while on the Presidential Primary campaign trail. Still, if you take all Presidents and candidates for Presidents who have moral failings off the list, you’ll be left with…nobody. John McCain, of course, had affairs back in the day, and is very much a serious figure on the national political scene.
From HuffPo, this excerpt: “…Now, we get to the most relevant question – if John Edwards’ political career is done, why isn’t John McCain’s? John McCain had a well-documented affair on his first wife, with his current wife. He has admitted in the books he has written about his life that he ran around with several different women while still married to his first wife. And don’t forget that he left her for a younger, richer woman – multi-millionaire Cindy Hensley who is now Cindy McCain – after she had been severely hurt in a car accident.”
