How Patraeus and Clinton are mixed up in this I don't know but there's more to it than we're hearing.
    Agreed, and I'm eager to hear the rest of the story. Now that there are some salacious details to savor, perhaps the lamestream press will pay attention and start doing their job.

    True, but Clinton got re-elected anyway.

    But aren't those the very people most likely to have affairs?

    Re: CIA Director Resigns

    Just watched the the Sunday morning shows. Believe the Petraeus resignation/"disgrace" just took a major shift.

    My prediction. Petraeus is going to come out of this as the warrior (fallen) hero. Who was undermined and driven from office by politically motivated snaked-eyed Republicans (a.k.a Eric Cantor).


    Gawd i luv a good scandal.....

    Petraeus did not betray we, the people; he betrayed his spouse. His adultery, while it may diminish his character for many, emphatically does not diminish his distinguished service of his country.

    Patreaus may have either fell on his sword for God and country or semi forced to resign as a cover or both. But he is already looking like the most honorable and truthful so far. Mistakes don't make you look less than human, not admitting to them does.

    And why would you give him that name?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Don't disagree. Always been a fan of the guy and still am. And if he is getting a little strange poon on the side that is his personal family issue to deal with.

    I was reflecting on Andrea Mitchell's report/claim this morning that none of this would have ever reached the public eye if Eric Cantor had not "forced the issue". Just projecting how the mainstream press is/may be going to run with it. ...

    Well, it certainly made John Edwards look foolish.
