John Edwards: the truth is out

Another politician falls from grace.
Another politician falls from grace.

Can I say – I am glad John Edwards failed in his presidential bid.  I am glad because his wreck less actions could’ve ruined the Democratic Party beyond repair.  Imagine him campaigning all over the United States as a legit Presidential hopeful and his affair was unleashed in the press?


It would have been devastating and almost impossible to recover from.  Its unfortunate many politicians believe they are above and beyond the law.  As a consequence, they continue to do whatever they want not even thinking their actions will come to light one day. 


Edwards’s actions have further lowered the little trust most Americans have in their politicians.  I mean just the other day; New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was forced to resign because of his affair with high-end call girl, Ashley Alexandra Dupré. 


It’s a sad day for politics when an allegedly squeaky clean politician has an affair, tries to cover it up and still believe he can run for the top job in the land.


Now I understand everyone is human and I should not judge.  Nevertheless, Edwards was a public figure running to be the President of the United States.  Proper discretion should have been exercised by him.  He should have never run for president knowing he had such an explosive past.


What do you think about the issue?

  1. Unfortunately, some politicians (and some people in general these days) are difficult to trust. They seem like people who would do great things in the world, but end up doing a lot of bad things they later regret. Yes, people are human and make mistakes, but when your running to become a presidential candidate you should be the best you can be in your public and private life. It’s sad that people don’t realize the extent of their actions until it’s too late.

  2. It’s true Christine. I am shocked John Edwards would even contemplate running for office when he knew in his heart he was hiding something of this magnitude. I really feel for his wife and family.

  3. Haha I never thought about if he would have gotten out of the primaries. Good point. I’m glad he didn’t win, although at the time I had much respect for him.
