First off, why do people cheat? Also, how could someone cheat when his wife is battling cancer. Argh!!! I've never been a fan of John Edwards politically, but it seemed like he and Elizabeth had a really great marriage. I just feel so bad for her. I really truly don't understand why it is so hard for these men to keep it in their pants. Is it just completely unreasonable to expect a man (especially one with "power") to be faithful to his wife??? John Edwards always seemed to me a Ken-doll version of the American president. Well, obviously, we now know he's no better than Bill Clinton.
I need to adopt the assumption that all politicians are scum so that stories like this don't seem like a surprise to me. How sad!!!
