John Edwards is the Real Deal!

He could give an impassioned speech.

If I ever meet J.E., I am going to say:

- So how is Mrs. Edwards?

  Remember HER?

would you have a point other than rubbing a man's nose in his wife's
terminal disease?

He should be taking care of his wife instead of continuing to make
appearances on the likes of Leno.

And he should just stop thinking about running for President in the
future:

   Heh. I was just about to defend Glenn's first remark as possibly
innocuous, but I've changed my mind now.

I am going to thank Glenn for joining a conversation as a participant,
even though I disagree with the content of the post, which I very much
do.

Welcome Glenn to the much flawed land of the living instead of the
quote spamming world.

I did not know that those two activities were mutually exclusive.

Edwards' wife may not want him around all that much. He is probably a
great big nuisance.

I guess that Edwards won't be the VP, after all  - unless he changes
parties, that is, and then it won't matter what he's done.

--------

{Politics.676.324}: furryriverrat {riverrat} Fri, 08 Aug 2008 22:40:12 EDT (10 lines)

IMO

Edwards failing was in "to thine ownself be true".  When he condemned
Clinton's failings, he was judging others by a standard that he could
not stand up to.  Not many men and women I know of couldn't fall into
the same trap as both men fell into.  But neither man, IMO, was
entitled to lie about it.

I agree with you that he can hang it up as far as running for the top
spot or being VP.

I wouldn't be so sure of that, as it didn't stop McSame. Here are a few stories:

"McCain was still married and living with his wife in 1979 while, according to The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof, "aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich." McCain divorced his wife, who had raised their three children while he was imprisoned in Vietnam, then launched his political career with his new wife's family money. In 2000, McCain managed to deflect media questioning about his first marriage with a deft admission of responsibility for its failure. It's possible that the age of the offense and McCain's charmed relationship with the press will pull him through again....."

"http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/2006/0607.benen.html"

Here are more details, of course limited to two paragraphs:

"After a whirlwind courtship, John asked Cindy to marry him. But there were some details to clear out of the way.

McCain needed a divorce from Carol, his wife of 14 years from whom he was separated. After McCain's dramatic homecoming from Vietnam, the couple grew apart. Their marriage began disintegrating while McCain was stationed in Jacksonville. McCain has admitted to having extramarital affairs."

that's why I said that Edwards' chances would be better if he changed
parties: republicans get a pass on infidelity.

Please, Gary.  "Good" reboobnicans don't call it "infidelity".  They
call it "boys will be boys."

And the "boy" stuff certainly fits.

And according to some of the Xian rooolz, Cindy committed adultery
too, even if she wasn't married.  (You don't have to be an adult to be
an adulterer, and in some versions of Xianity you are an adulterer if
you have sex with a spouse other than any of your own.)

{Politics.676.328}: T.J. McGovern {tj2} Sat, 09 Aug 2008 15:13:29 EDT (3 lines)

Religion aside, in most places it's illegal to have sex with anyone
you're not married to. My bet would be that's a law that's that's
never considered much outside of divorce court.

{328} Wow, TJ?  In most places?

Well, to get technical, most of the places on earth are covered in
seawater.

I had a friend once whose sailboat was adorned with a plaque.  It was
bronze, and fastened to the bulkhead starboard of the hatch to the
main cabin:

"Marriages Performed By the Captain of This Vessel Are Valid for the
Duration of This Voyage Only"

  if it were boys, he'd be a republican.

Wow, David? You've become the biggest ass on these boards.

I'll bet you're proud.

Enormous intellect.

You've joined my filter corps, so feel free to impugn everything I say from now on in your grade-school manner.

Show everyone how you deal with those who never took a logic class let alone taught one; call me silly names behind my back.

Bye now.

In Florida, it is not illegal to fornicate.

That's the tech term for extramarital sexual intercourse.

It used to be illegal, but Flordy passed a statute called the sunset
law.  It specifically required re-enactment of all but a few specified
laws before a certain date.  Elsewise, the laws would lapse.  That was
nice.

Nobody had to come out in favor of fornication.

Lots of us, maybe you included, TJ, are safe now.  In Florida.

You're in AZ now, right?  Hope you get your sensa yuma back soon.

I never thought I would say this, but thank God for the National
Enquirer:

- The Los Angeles Times demonstrated a pronounced lack of enthusiasm
for the story in its own back yard, even putting out a notice to its
bloggers to avoid mentioning it.
