I’ve reflected before on what a sleazebag former Sen. John Edwards was and is. But his latest tabloid exploits (or, more precisely, the latest tabloid exploits of his shameless mistress) have yielded some good results. According to Salon.com columnist Rebecca Traister, “Rielle Hunter’s involvement with a man I had planned to vote for revealed to me the wrongness of my own instincts, and the very real chance that we could have handed the Democratic Party’s future over to a congenital liar and charlatan.”
Brava, Ms. Traister. And may this realization be a lesson for others.
