It seems John Edwards was screwed from the beginning as he was out screwing around!!!!
Even his own staff didn’t want anything to do with him after they confirmed for themselves that he was having an affair. And according to George Stephanopoulos his own staff were planning on sabotaging him if he’d won the nomination!!!
Can you believe that? Talk about being stabbed in the back..
But seriously if you think about the situation it’s entirely in the relm of possibility especially in the world of politics-which is notorious for being a dog, eat dog kinda world.
But what I can never understand is why do their wives stay? And no I don’t believe the reasons Elizabeth Edwards gave to Matt Lauer this morning, ‘ because I believed he cared about other people’ and ‘because I really believe in the words better or worse’ blah, blah blah etc etc.
Gimme a break Elizabeth, you’re a smart woman, but that statement is almost, almost, as unbelievable as the response your husband gave during one of the presidential debates, ” If there’s one flaw I have it’s that I care too much…” remember that one?
From Elizabeth Edwards, to Hillary Clinton to Silda Spitzer these high profile women were embarassed and disrespcted publicly by their powerful, philandering husbands yet they all stayed and continue to stay with a man that seemingly cares very little about them or their marriage vows.
I think the real reason these smart, beautiful, accomplished women stay with their cheating husbands is because of the status, fame etc etc they gain/have gained by being the wives of these politically, powerful men.
Because as we all know trust can only be broken oh so many times before it’s gone completely and if there’s no trust in a marriage there can be no meaningful marriage or relationship. Period.
Ladies, I guess one of the only benefits of being the wife of a poor man is that when he cheats on you you get the satisfaction of telling (yelling most likely..lol) him to, ” Pack his bags and get to hell out!” LOL
