How can a guy run for President when he knows he has an affair that’s out there, when he knows news orgs are already onto it?  What if he had won the nomination, or been chosen the VP?  Just as Bill Clinton compromised the Dems with his reckless behavior, so too did Edwards.

That said…boy, for a non-candidate this sure is getting a lot of play, compared to McCain’s well-known dalliances with a lobbyist 30 years his junior, which also included some quid pro quos.

    I think the comparison is a stretch. First, no evidence that McCain actually had an affair. And while he did leave his first wife following an affair, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s guilty this time. Edwards, on the other hand, was actively running for president and should have known better. Or at a minimum, his handlers should have known better and been willing to kick him in the nuts.

    Having said that, this Rielle Hunter chick is a piece of work. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I read the occasional Jay McInerney novel. Apparently Hunter is a model for the character for Story of My Life and that he was “intrigued and disgusted” by her. That’s pretty condemning, given his tolerance for sleaze.
