Maureen Dowd’s op-ed piece on the New York Times is brutal on former senator John Edwards. She details some of the main features of a new book. The man who betrayed his dying wife is the main character of Andrew Young’s revealing memoir entitled “The Politician.” The book deals with the scandal that brought down a man who was near to the presidency or who could have been in Joe Biden’s office at this point. Dowd’s conclusion is a perfect summary of John Edward’s political career:
The man who preached about two Americas will be remembered for doing it with two faces.
