    when going through a tough time does not get you into this mess.

    And that is what predators do - they have to display their "kill."

    Even if the scandal had not been broken, it was evident that she intended to "speak" for the General in a very unsavory way.

      Like you, I've seen this behavior up close and personal and I'm quite certain that the gossip which surrounded these two was based on her very possessive attitude.  

      I do think that he's been able to have discreet affairs but this particular lady was not going to go quietly which I'm guessing is the direction he was headed.

        almost flaunting their closeness for everyone to see.

        Do you think he was already moving on?  Having used her for the biography?

        •  Yes, I do think he had already moved on (5+ / 0-)

          when he took the CIA gig.  Even though she visited him at Langley and continued to follow their routine which was established in Afghanistan, I believe he dumped her.  Fooling around in a country far, far away is a whole lot different that keeping an affair going in the middle of Spook Land.
