David Gergen-- "great men have affairs" ---Fuck you David! [View all]

Yeah Dave---fuck the wife and kids in the background who have to endure the public embarrassment because the errrrrr Great Men can't keep their dicks in their pants. Mr. Gergen---you win the Douchebag of the Week award!

<snip>
David Gergen — a friend of Gen. David Petraeus as well as the woman he reportedly had an extra-marital affair with — said on “Face The Nation” this morning that great men have affairs — and that those relationships can be very important to them in difficult times.

On edit: This is what he said about the Clinton affair:

"We have our own set of village rules," says David Gergen, editor at large at U.S. News & World Report, who worked for both the Reagan and Clinton White House. "Sex did not violate those rules. The deep and searing violation took place when he not only lied to the country, but co-opted his friends and lied to them. That is one on which people choke.

"We all live together, we have a sense of community, there's a small-town quality here. We all understand we do certain things, we make certain compromises. But when you have gone over the line, you won't bring others into it. That is a cardinal rule of the village. You don't foul the nest."
