8. I concur with fellow DU'ers who feel there are far greater criminals that need prosecution.
I am sick & tired for a few dems that get thrown under the bus, so that our country has some appearance or semblance of justice.
I don't defend the actions of those few dems, but their crimes are far less than the bastards that relentlessly screw this country over and are free to do so over and over again. I think of that bastard, Newt Gingrich, that called for impeachment of Clinton while he was doing the same or worst, flippin' hypocrite!
I hope that Edwards can mend his family.
Personally, I grieve for the man that might have been, the man that should have been, the man that I thought John Edwards was, because he knew the real issues that plague us to this day, and he could have been the best. To reach incredible heights you must have incredible values and insight, it's incredibly hard to be a leader in any calling, and many a great man can succumb to a weakness, in this case it was a woman, which is forgiveable, minus the money issue. To quote Kennedy, to whom much is given, much is expected. Oh, John, you held our hearts and our hopes.
I hope that John finds his true heart, mends his family and from this day forward realizes he can still redeem himself. I know the man that Elizabeth believed in, the man his family believes in, the man I believed in, is still there...we are all human, and inclined to sometimes make incredibly stupid mistakes.
Find your way, John, redeem yourself, for your self.
