    No, I simply think we have all become jaded as for this sterotypical story for yet another politician.
    It takes something very extreme sexually to get our attention anymore. Just garden variety playing with a staff assistant just doesn't get it. One needs to have a tryst with a prostitute, celeb, same sex, or donkey to get the spotlight it seems.

    Am sorry that you just can't get enough juice on this one James but I am certain somewhere some donkey is going to get the courage to talk to Dateline's Chris Hansen soon.

    Re: Edwards admits he fathered videographer's child

    Part of me see's Edwards 10 years in the future, a manager of a Piggly Wiggly, though still making some side money on radio and local television stations for political comment. Another part of me sees Edwards actually running for Congress and winning... which would be a shame. Now that he's outed as a true blue liar and cheater - I mean the honeymoon is over isn't it? Doesn't a politician at least have to have a have a facade of being credible? His is gone for good I think. Piggly Wiggly wouldn't be bad though... it'd be steady work and someone has to order the produce.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It takes a few years but in politics you can be a dog and return years later with a new image. Remember McCain and his crippled first wife when he met Cindy. Americans have short attention spans.

    I agree it's possible... but don't you think it's harder these days with so much information being on the internet and documented electronically? I mean... McCain's was still dug up during 2008 but it wasn't well known nor remembered, but now... this will never go away. I just think the chances are slimmer in 2010 than say 1972 or even 1990.

    It is hard to say. Really can't imagine him coming back into the main stage of things.

    But we continue to be jaded about everything anymore. I picture some day not too far in the future when a politician will be caught with sheep in his hotel room and we just shake our heads and just say his personal life has no bearing on his job performance.

    Re: Edwards admits he fathered videographer's child

    I think we all knew Edwards was the baby's father - no surprise there. But I didn't know about this stuff:

    In an interview with ABC's "20/20," Young detailed what he claims was an elaborate effort by Edwards to conceal the fact that he had fathered a daughter while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination and while his wife was battling breast cancer.

    "The senator made the full pitch," Young said. "Not just for me. I mean he didn't just have to convince me that I was going to take paternity. He also had to convince Rielle that she would publicly claim that I had been the father."

    Young said Edwards asked him and his wife, Cheri, to steal one of his daughter's soiled diapers as part of a DNA strategy.

    "Get a doctor to fake the DNA results," Young said Edwards told him. "And he asked me and Cheri to steal a diaper from the baby so he could secretly do a DNA test to find out if this [was] indeed his child."
    --ABC News - 20/20
    What a sleazebag.

    He's her meal-ticket. She ain'ty goin' anywhere. She saw his financial potential from the git-go and that's why she married him.

    She wanted to be first lady worse then he wanted to be president. I've heard she's a piece of work.
