  •  I don't give a shit about who Edwards had sex (1+ / 0-)

    with or when.

    I do care that Edwards -- last October, while he was running against Democrats not the GOP -- lied and denied the affair.

    I do care that Edwards -- last month, while he was a "candidate" for Attorney General -- lied and denied the affair.

    I do care especially that Edwards and his wife decided -- for what reason, I cannot comprehend -- that it was OK for Edwards to run for President again with this dark cloud hanging over him which, if Edwards had been the nominee, could've jeopardized Democratic victory in November

    None of that has anything to do with the need for physical comfort or married people's lack of a sex life.

    Edwards and his wife could've (and should've IMO) put it all out in the open instead of denying it last October -- then we could've had a discussion about why or why not an adulterous affair, freely admitted to and forgiven by the spouse, should make it impossible to win the White House. They didn't do that.
