Thoughts On John Edwards


by Turkana

Speaking only for myself- who cares? What people do in their personal lives is between them and the other people in their personal lives. Franklin Roosevelt had a lover. Richard Nixon likely didn't. End of story.

UPDATE: The argument is made- well, he was running for office, lied about it, blah blah blah. Wouldn't it be better if we all stood together and said he never should have been asked about it in the first place? That it shouldn't be a political factor? That it's up to us to try to change that dynamic? As long as we are afraid of and submit to the politics of personal lives, we allow such politics to persist and prevail.
