John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extra-marital affair with a novice film-maker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.
Frankly I don’t care what a politician does or does not do with his dick. I don’t care about Clinton, McCain or Gingrich’s sex lives, It’s not my business and says zero about how they will govern. But, Edwards now has given the traditional media the salacious story it’s been craving and we’ll end up having to hear about this for the rest of the election season, even though it has nothing to do with the race.
I will quibble with Mr. Bennen when he states:
Update: I neglected to mention, Edwards had been rumored to be eyeing a key role in a possible Obama administration. Given today’s revelation, it’s probably safe to assume Edwards’ career in government is over.
I doubt that. Gingrich, McCain and Clinton all continued successful political careers in spite of their affairs.
