This is a great little post from the political wire. In case you don't want to click the link I'll paraphrase. Essentially when John Edwards wanted to get some support from Bill Clinton during his whole, "Oops I banged a different woman while my wife is slowly dying of cancer" thing, he got baiscily bitch slapped by a loyalist who shot down the idea remarking that Edwards was a cheap opportunist during the whole Lewinsky scandal.
Say what you will about the Clintons but I think Edwards has always been an obvious phony. At the very least I believe that Bill may acutally care about the general public where as Edwards just cared about himself.
