John Edwards Blames His Own Celebrity

The John Edwards “affair,” and his own words should give pause to every voter, not for the obvious reasons, but because he is such a weasel at heart. See updates below.

…through a lot of work and success I got some acclaim as a lawyer. People were telling me, oh you’re such a great person, such a great lawyer, such a talent, no telling what you’ll do.

This was when I was 30, 31 years old. Then I went from being a young senator to being considered for vice president, running for president, being a vice presidential candidate, all of which fed a self-focus, an egotism, a narcissicism that leads you to believe you can do anything you want, you are invincible and there will be no consequences.

Blaming your public fall from grace on your ability to shill your followers is disingenuous and despicable.

The lesson for voters? Pompous and grandiose candidates are rejected by American voters, as was John Edwards, John Kerry and Al Gore.
