While Edwards himself admitted the affair and left himself open for all of these public attacks, at least he is no longer in the political arena. My suggestion to him is to either cut all ties to Ms. Hunter or confess all because the Enquirer is not going to let up on him or his family until the election. He may as well get it all overwith. I cannot speak for Mrs. Edwards. My heart goes out to her in these very troubled times. She and her children are just left to cope with this mess until it is all over.
Last weekend, John McCain admitted the lowest moment in his life. He said he is most ashamed of his extra marital affair with his current wife, then Cindy Lou Hensley, and the end of his first marriage. As if an Edward´s affair deja vu moment, John McCain confessed that in April, 1979 he met Ms. Cindy and had an affair from his ill wife. The first Mrs. McCain had suffered illness due to a devastating car accident she had in 1969. In Feb., 1980, he married the blonde, Ms. Cindy, and, unbelievably, Gary Hart (another politician philanderer), was McCain´s groomsman. McCain did not mention, however, as reported by the NY Times, that Top Aids were convinced he was having an affair with a Cindy look-a-like lobbyist named Vicki Iseman.
I wonder why it is that Powerful Men cheat, particularly those in the Political Arena. We see so many headlines about their indiscretions. This behavior is so blatant, it makes me wonder.
Is it the headline if they cheat?
Is it the headline if they DO NOT cheat, like Obama?
It makes you wonder!
