I can’t be the only one to think it was a little bizarre that Edwards called a press conference to let us know that his campaign will continue on uninterrupted.
At any rate, the juxtaposition is still pretty clear- Any time his wife needs him, Edwards will be by her side. Newt Gingrich bailed on his wife with cancer, and it took God to tell Tom DeLay to quit chugging martinis and to stop cheating on his wife.
Maybe that is why they are against gay marriage. They just don’t want anyone to have to go through the crap they put their spouses through. We’ll call that compassionate conservatism.
