78. They're not a normal American family.
How many people do you know who run for the Presidency? Look, no one is saying this should be played out in the tabloids. It shouldn't; it is a private matter between Elizabeth and John.....now. But when he was running for the Presidency he knew this was a time bomb that could explode any minute. And he ran anyway. What if he had won the nomination? Cindy McCain would be choosing colors for the White House bedroom right now. It was breathtakingly reckless on Edwards' part for him to think this would not come out. And give us four years of McCain. I wanted Edwards as the nominee, I donated to him, I still think his policy ideas are the best ones for our country. But the days of a public figure's sexual behavior remaining private are long gone, right or wrong. And I thank God he did not win. There is too much at stake.

I think that is why this has caused such a public firestorm--he ran for the office knowing this would destroy his Presidential bid and our hopes of ending the bush junta. And that point is a valid one.
