186. what are you talking about?
look at mccain! within a month of his divorce he was remarried. does anybody anywhere think that he didn't cheat on his wife? how's his political career? oh, yeah, rolling right along, candidate for the presidency. how about giuliani? his 3rd marriage already, and didn't he actually dump his last wife in a news conference? the hero of 911? anyone else, i know there must be.

this does not have to end edwards's career. oh, wait - he's a DEMOCRAT. it's over. there's no forgiveness for democrats no matter what. republicans - they can murder people, start stupid wars, waste the entire treasury of the country, violate the constitution, lie to congress and to the people, torture, rendition, lie, lie, lie! and it's okay. it's okay. :banghead:
