I was severely disappointed to hear John Edwards admit to and affair he had at one time denied. I was one of the many who thought he was”one of the few good guys” left in Washington. Even thought he would have been a reasonable president. And he may still be, but is it any wonder our society is so cynical and untrusting?
He stated in an interview that all the attention he recieved from his campaign for president made him feel special, deserving and arrogant. Which makes me wonder: Can anyone keep their morals in check once good fortune, power and popularity come knocking? Does even a small amount of success corrupt your moral compass? Is there anyone left who won’t come to believe that they are above it all?
For our sakes, I hope there is. Ok. Off the soap box.
