6. If Petraeus was screwing the hotel maid or his wife's friend, I'd agree
with you. That's tawdry stuff, but not really our concern once he's a civilian. But he was screwing a very well-connected woman who is using and spouting possibly sensitive/classified information about national security issues. And there may be a political angle. That makes it more interesting than an old skirt chaser skirt-chasing.
