  •  I'm not too happy (0+ / 0-)

    I am not too happy about what happened--- but as long as neither of them runs for President again, I see no reason why I should care what choices they make.

    Ironically, it sounds like it was third parties who outed John Edwards.  His wife had decided-- for whatever reason--- that she could live with the situation.

    The right thing to do is to quietly work out a divorce settlement and move on.  We want Elizabeth to punish John, but even if she lives in a large house, we should cut her some slack.  I should cut her some slack. I am not the one who worked side by side with him on all those campaigns--- although I helped out with 2 or 3 of his many crusades. I didn't live with the guy for all those years.  He is not the father of my children.  I am not in love with him--- although I did have a crush on him for a few years.  

    Her main priority is not to send me or anyone else a message that monogamy is good and adultery is bad: her main priority if get her life back on track.

      life and with her children for as long as she can....but definitely do it out of the spotlight. If she had more time...I would think she would want to know why a smart, capable woman settled for a man that thought so little of her.
