Quite true...but then, he is a Democrat and a lawyer.

Seems that most of the article focuses on the self-destruction that John Edwards went through as he refused to take responsibility for the Rielle Hunter relationship and its effect upon his marriage and public image. In the end, the article indicates that Edwards' staff did a good job of holding in the story until he finally failed as a primary candidate on his own merits. However, the affair, his difficulties in figuring who would ultimately win the primary, and his inability to see how he was coming off on others ultimately cost him the credibility he'd need for a cabinet position or even a speaking slot at the convention. And the article also indicate that he had a big, fat puffed head from being a Veep candidate in 2004 that probably impaired his judgment all along the way.
