Politicians often have affairs; that is not unusual. What makes this case different is that Edwards cheated on his wife, told her about it, continued the affair, allegedly fathered a child out of wedlock with his mistress, lied to scores of reporters, aides and donors about the affair for months, and yet still chose to run for president knowing that the affair was likely to come out.
This is an impressive résumé for a candidate who ran his campaign on a platform of honesty and integrity.
