The Most Political of Marriages Ends At The Most Political of Times

John and Elizabeth Edwards separate, just in time to try to knock down some of the headlines of an aide's book about them.

I'm sure there are other political couples as calculating, but few could be as calculating all the way through the end of their relationship.

John Edwards is a scum bag, in the same sense that Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Bill Clinton, Mark Sanford, et al are scumbags because of their infidelity to their wives. He is among the worst because he betrayed his good wife while she is dying with cancer. Expect no sympathy from me. Period.

I'm with you Dude, but by all accounts, Mrs.Edwards might be an even worse person than her husband, cancer or not.
