Wake up America! John Edwards is just like many of you!

"Bookmark



John Edwards today admitted to having a 2-year old daughter with a campaign worker.  John Edwards' former mistress is named Riellee Hunter, a novice filmmake, hired by his campaign.

Add him to the growing list of politicians who have wrecked homes.  

Mark Sanford, Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Gary Condit, Elliot Spitzer...the list goes on and on.

It's time we stop putting politicians on a pedestal and look at them as regular people with regular lives, regular problems, and screwed up situations.  

For centuries, Americans have been in denial about how squeaky clean these politicians really are.  They are no better or worse than any men or women in any other field. 

Does this mean I'm defending John Edwards' actions. Absolutely not, but I'm a realist too.  Edwards is no different than a dockworker or stockbroker who chooses to cheat on his wife and father a child with a mistress.
