"Of course. I mean, for a lot of Americans -- including the family that I grew up with, I mean, it's fundamental to how you judge people and human character -- whether you keep your word, whether you keep what is your ultimate word, which is that you love your spouse, and you'll stay with them. ... I think the most important qualities in a president in today's world are trustworthiness -- sincerity, honesty, strength of leadership. And -- and certainly that goes to a part of that."
-- Edwards to CBS News anchor Katie Couric's question on infidelity last fall

"It is inadequate to say to the people who believed in me that I am sorry, as it is inadequate to say to the people who love me that I am sorry. In the course of several campaigns, I started to believe that I was special and became increasingly egocentric and narcissistic. If you want to beat me up feel free. You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself."
-- Edwards today

I can't beat you up? Ok.. let's see... You cheated on your cancer-ridden wife with a woman who, once she started taking the high hard one from you, was given $100,000 in a four-month span to direct the production of four Web videos showing you in a public speech talking about morality. You are everything that is wrong with politics in America - and just because I could tell you were a slick shitbag years ago when your only job in the 2004 campaign was to make sure Wes Clark lost (for which you were rewarded - but apparently you needed moar blowjobs than John Kerry was willing to give you). When I saw the interview after it was announced your wife's cancer had returned - and the both of you sat there and said you would continue your campaign 'because it's what she wants me to do' (sidenote: both of you were aware of the infidelity at that point) - i was appalled by the unabashedly egocentric decision making process... have we not had enough 'it's all about me' in the whitehouse these last 16 years? You, John, didn't think so... so you ran - and you couldn't win - but you stayed in... because it made you feel more special. Well the next time you want to feel special instead of cheating on your tumor-laden wife, how about you just beat the shit out of some autistic kids. People like you are why people like me dont vote. Die in a fire. I swear - maybe all men who want to take the role of president should be neutered - like post-yam Pak Protectors...
