It's the feel good story of 2012. The John Edwards' trial. The level of stupidity is egregious. If you are a little lost in what is actually happening, take a look at this ABC story on the key players in the trail.
I think most people are still shocked at how the pretty boy's campaign imploded and that his staffer, Andrew Young, would take responsibility for Edwards' affair. There is something about power that makes people forget reason. When you work for someone that you think could be the "real thing" and could make it to the White House, there is no doubt in my mind that you do what you have to to make them succeed. Even if it is ruining your marriage by admitting to procreating with someone named Rielle. I don't think Andrew is the crazy one...if anyone should be blamed, it should be Mrs. Andrew Young. As a woman, she should have been the most logical one of the group and put her foot down immediately. But I can see how fancy hotels and private jets cloud one's judgement. It certainly clouds mine.
Edwards faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines if found guilty for his stupidity. I wouldn't feel too sorry for him though...I'm sure he'll be in the Club Med of prisons. Maybe they will allow his hair stylist to visit....perhaps for "conjugal" visits.
