In Praise of John Edwards

Well, he deserves the approbation that he is receiving for all of the reasons that are being given, but:

He at least has had the decency not to parade his wife out as a prop as part of his pursuit of political salvation.

If Mr. Edwards' transgression and resultant calamity and confession signal an end to the practice of reducing spouses to political devices, we should be glad.

I'm sorry, but one should not be praised for sparing his wife public humiliation for his betrayal of her. Things must be pretty bad when we feel we must applaud those who do the least of what is expected of them. What does that say about those who do not even have that level of decency?
