The idea that Edwards' infidelity should "cast a shadow over the Democratic party," as I've heard it said elsewhere, is ridiculous. Edwards is clearly not the man we chose to lead this party for any number of reasons.

Don't throw stones in glass houses, I say.

How come the right-wing media suppresses comparisons of Edwards' indiscretion to their own candidate McCain's own indiscretion?

It's been well documented ( http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B02EFDF1439F934A15751C0A9669C8B63 ) that John McCain conducted an affair with Cindy McCain while he was married to his first wife. But you really don't hear much about it. I only read about it on Wikipedia once.

And the second time I heard about it was on Friday after the Edwards news broke. According to Mark Green, a guest on MSNBC's "Race for the White House", when McCain was asked about the Edwards infidelity, his response was, "No comment."

Why don't these guys take a cue from their own candidate and lift themselves above this level of discourse?

Good call, Tony. And, as I recall, McCain's wife had cancer at the time...sound familiar? Not that I want this story to build up either, I really don't care about the candidates' infidelities except to the extent that they distract from more important issues (that said, cheating on your wife while she's struggling with a life-threatening disease is pretty, um, shitty). I will give McCain credit for one thing: during this "scandal" and all the Obama fear-mongering, he's been pretty consistent in not getting involved and actively disavowing when the ball came firmly into his court. Maybe it's just self-serving wisdom of the aforementioned "don't throw stones..." variety, but at this point I'll take what I can get.

CORRECTION: McCain cheated on his wife, while she was recovering from a car accident, not suffering from cancer.

Apologies.

And the press treated Giuliani going out on the town with his mistress (while his TV-reporter wife was being humiliated in public) as some kind of lark. Not to mention Gingrich, Hyde, Chenoweth, Burton (who fathered a child out of wedlock), etc. Rank hypocrites, every single one of them.
