The rest is not my business.
The reality of the situation is that the American public won’t tolerate a politician who is dumb enough to get caught being unfaithful to his spouse. Or dumb enough to be unfaithful to his spouse during an election year. Whichever.
Right or wrong, stupid or smart, staunchly self-aware or staunchly self-ignorant, these are the American voters. And John Edwards played fast and loose with the rules that he knew existed.
So he screwed those who had no idea what he was doing, who had no idea that he was setting himself up for a fall.
The rest of it is simply not my business.
