Edwards admits Rielle Hunter affair

John Edwards, former Democratic Presidential contender, candidate for Vice President, and Senator from North Carolina has finally admitted to the affair with Rielle Hunter. Prominent liberal bloggers on DailyKos are now outraged. In December, Kos commentators on my diary, John Edwards real problem is not Rielle Hunter, but John Edwards, wanted me to take my diary down. I was right, they were wrong. I really don't frequent DailyKos anymore :)

What's more relevant than today's admission by Edwards, is the fact that another former Presidential candidate, Representative Kucinich, persists with his efforts to impeach Bush and/or Cheney for the criminal acts and intents that lead to the invasion and occupation of Iraq:

Progressives should have stood behind the one consistent champion of proposals like national single-payer health care (H.R. 676), the one candidate that actually voted against the Oct. 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force in Iraq, etc.

Also in todays news - Russia has reportedly invaded the Republic of Georgia. Going forward into the Obama vs. McCain decision in November, the candidates' positions on conflicts in Caucasus region matter more than the Edwards affair.

Today is the Feast of St. Dominic, founder of the Dominican Order - the Mendicant Order of Preachers. Pray for courage to speak for the peace promised by Christ with the same dedication as this beggar!
