It's amazing the left-wing liberal press has not ignored John Edwards' recent admission that he committed adultery. But even more amazing is that they are not overlooking the fact that he, along with his party's last president, lied for months about his "indiscretion." One can be forgiven for a sin, but trust must be earned.

Thankfully, we can bid Mr. Edwards adieu as a future prospective president. Sadly, the Edwards family has been the victim. They deserve our deepest sympathy.
