[quote]Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has admitted to having an extramarital affair, but has denied fathering a child by the woman. The affair has been reported in recent weeks in the tabloid press.
Alex Chadwick speaks with NPR Senior Washington Editor Ron Elving about the political implications of the revelation.[/quote]
Generally, I don’t care about politicians and who gets into their knickers. Yet, this one really disturbed me since he had it while his wife was at the lowest point a person could go in their life. What makes this interesting now is the media is begnning to peek into the McCain marriage rift, speculating on that, but no word on the Obama marriage. Not all men cheat, but there hasn’t even been speculation on Obama’s sexual whatever/past.
So, how important is it for the public to know about candidate’s sexual and marriage habits, aside from the obvious reasons (intergity, etc.)
And how will this impact Edwards future political runs, especially Obama?
