Edwards: Role Model?

Former GOP operative Carter Wrenn weighs in on the John Edwards flap:

For some strange reason we seem to be plodding through an era when our politicians, by and large, seem hollow to the core. All glitter, no substance. Big hat, no cattle.

I reckon John Edwards should weigh on us not because he got himself tangled up with a blonde, but because he misled people like the woman who worked for him. And because it seems the disease infecting our politics is virulent and spreading and if we just say, What does that have to do with the public interest, it’s going to keep on spreading …

With all due respect, humbug. Politicians these days are no more likely — or less likely — than their predecessors to engage in extracurriculars of the sort Edwards has. Anyone remember Wilbur Mills? Or JFK?
