ok, dems, comments?
john edwards is (finally!) being prosecuted for the misappropriation of political donations towards the support and silencing of his mistress with whom he fathered a child, and then engaged a campaign aide to claim paternity in order to mitigate scandal while running for the presidency.
it amazes me how rabidly some partisans will go after their ideological opposites for their lapses in morality, and barely murmur when it's one of their own. in the interest in better and more-ethical government, i believe it would help if we could all agree that an ethical person of coincident ideological difference is a far better choice at the ballot box than an unethical alternative regardless of political stripe.
unfortunately, while we all see party before we see the candidate, we're going to keep getting more of this. (right, ahnold?)
