5. Well, I do. It has to do with judgment, ability to control your behavior....

things like that.

Having a short affair or fling is one thing. But to have a drawn out affair with someone so VISIBLE (she was on the Daily Show, gave speeches and interviews, etc.) and obviously screwy (pardon the pun) is bizarre. Broadwell was sending threatening (sort of) emails to another woman who apparently wasn't even having an affair with Petraeus.

Messy, distracting. Could he really focus on his high level security job with all that nutso stuff going on?

Still, if he had stayed, I'd have been okay with that. I don't know the ins and outs (pardon the second pun) of the CIA. As I heard on TV, he certainly couldn't be blackmailed at this point.
