John Edwards - Just another lyin, cheatin guy?
Say it isn't so. John Edwards appeared to be a decent, hardworking, family-loving man. I am always reminded of the similarity between Kenneth the NBC Page on 30 Rock and Edwards - but I have long admired Edward's focus and commitment to helping the poor and disenfranchised. It seemed like he was a good and earnest husband and father. There isn't a woman who isn't saddened by his wife's long battle with cancer.
There have been online reports for the last few months about Edwards and his alleged affair with a former campaign worker. Now there are reports of a baby - and just the other day, it appears Edwards was caught by reporters leaving the hotel room of the woman at 2:45 a.m.
I know - he is human. I also know that he is a man who has been in the spotlight and that it is easy to succumb to temptations (he is human, I know, I know). John McCain had an affair with his current wife while still married, Bill Clinton, Elliot Spitzer.....the list could go on forever.....but doesn't it make you just a little bit sad? Don't you just wish that John Edwards wasn't another one of those lyin, cheating men?
