    I knew he was hiding something ever since it came out that he got a $300 haircut. $300!?! For a man's haircut!?!? You cannot trust that man!!

    The cheating thing is bad too, I guess. Really, it's only cringe-worthy because his wife has cancer. I wonder if she knew.

    His actions all hold together when you consider that he was probably hoping the fact that his wife had cancer would give him some emotional leverage on the political playing field. I don't think he let it bother him that much. He had bigger fish to fry.

    Actually, I liked Edwards on some levels. He's the only part of the 2004 dem ticket that seemed palatable and ballsy; however, he also didn't seem to be experienced or well-rounded enough, he just did well in a few areas.

    However, the man was a lawyer. And when he talked, sometimes he came off as insincere or too neatly packaged. Just because someone sounds packaged doesn't meant they're NOT sincere, but they can still leave people feeling like they're just being played.

    So I never considered him presidential material.

    And if we want to discuss "public disclosure," I mean, isn't this the most "profitable" strategy if you screw up? Most people avoid or stonewall, because if they can get away with not admitting their mistake, then they're home free. It doesn't really matter how much we claim to love "honest politicians"; as soon as someone admits they did something bad, politics kicks in, they lose face and power, people cut them off, the punishments can be severe.

    Politicians only admit to wrongdoing when they realize they're caught, can't get out of it, and it'll be better to confess than to continue to play stupid.

    The system punishes those who come clean and rewards those who obfuscate. That's the way it's always been. You confess only when you can't dodge the bullet.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This is one of the many tragedies of modern politics; the successful politicians are the best liars. The ones who actually tell the truth as they see it are often branded kooks (Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, et al.). I don't mean to say they AREN'T kooky (I've met Ron Paul, and I've seen him speak in person twice; he's a bit of a kook), but they are basically ideological zealots who don't care much what detractors think of them.

    Just to rub it in a little... "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. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen." - Edwards on Clinton (Inspired by another forum)

    I hope he enjoys the rest of his life. I have no respect for cheaters. If you're so unhappy with your spouse at least respect the person enough to let them know and either work on the relationship or get a divorce before you take your manky ass over to some ho's house and bang her OR take your manky ho ass over to some cheezy pricks house and bang him.

    He has always come across as a risible, oily little half-man to me. This just makes him even sleazier.
