It's sad for everyone. That said, who is this film lady? An affair with Edwards and then an aid who maybe fathered the baby? Seriously?

OK, then love is. The phrase "love is blind" exists for a reason.

Failed love, maybe. What we allow into our hearts is the problem.

To be generous about it, yes the severe illness of one spouse (or a child) is often a cause of marital trouble, which can include affairs leading up to the eventual breakup (or not). Romance-novel stereotypes about the tenderness of nursing someone back to health injecting new life into a relationship are wildly unrealistic, and I think most anyone who's been in a longterm relationship need only spend a few seconds imagining themselves in that situation to grasp that in reality they'd just as often feel isolated, needy, resentful, and afraid as they would concerned, guilty, devoted, and supportive. However, there's also something to be said for pointing out the extreme selfishness of even taking a chance on publically humiliating and privately hurting someone whose ability to hold their own is at its lowest ebb.

Like Sean said earlier--I'll bet he's glad he's not running for president right now. Professionally relevant or not, the publicity would have killed his candidacy immediately.

Yes I'd say extreme selfishness is a fair suggestion. I'm not going to say anything else, because well it's obvious why..given what has already gone on here

And a couple of days ago he was still saying it was tabloid nonsense

That's another sad thing in all of this — the National Enquirer broke a real news story.

Well, I kept saying..

At least the Enquirer didn't let any political bias get in the way

I think they broke the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky story, too.

well i guess when you have someone vehemently deny something, and then finally come out and say 'oh actually its the truth' it does actually become news. Do i care that he had an affair? not really it seems to be super common these days but it does annoy me when things are said, and then denied denied denied and THEN said 'ok yes' well, why continue the lie?

Also didn't he say that he had the affair BEFORE his wife had cancer? i think its even worse!
