Nope. Sorry. I'm not going to feel sorry for former N.C. Senator and vice presidential nominee John Edwards. He created this mess for himself, and there should be consequences.
It's his children we should feel sorry for and who he should spend the rest of his life repenting to.
From The Daily Beast:
In John Edwards hometown, residents are disgusted by the fallen former presidential candidate's cheating on Elizabeth Edwards. Michelle Cottle visits Chapel Hill, where people snicker about his nightlife and his visits to his wife and sons graves as tour buses drive by.
Situated at the corner of Columbia and Franklin streets in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Spankys Restaurant and Bar isnt known so much for its food as for the black-framed caricatures of prominent patrons that adorn its walls: sports stars, media personalities, politicians. In the top corner spot nearest the front window hangs a likeness of former Senator John Edwards, arguably the towns most famousnow infamousresident. The sly, flirty grin is unmistakable, and the extravagantly peaked eyebrows give Edwards image a faintly diabolical air. At a nearby table, a chunky middle-aged guy sporting a ball cap tucks into a late lunch and begins musing loudly to his companions about how someone needs to take down the disgraced senators picture. Pronto.
The gentleman is not alone in his disgust. When I ask the lanky, fresh-faced barkeep, recent UNC graduate Sam Ward, how often customers come in demanding to know when Edwards picture will be removed, he doesnt hesitate. Every day, he sighs. Every. Single. Day. I dont know when its going to happen, says Ward. But it needs to. I hear theyre thinking of putting up a picture of Elizabeth Edwards in its place.
