Curious.....

Did John McCain’s affair with his then-OW affect your vote in any way?

And, why do you think it ruined John Edwards’ career, but not McCain’s?

It was so long ago, I imagine there would only be a tiny faction of the forum possible who would have lived in Arizona where he was elected to office, and been old enough to vote. By the time he was running for president, people saw his long term marriage as a success, with little care that it came from an affair. He also accomplished other things in his life that greatly overshadowed it (and I'm not a Republican, but I consider him someone who benefited that party and our country). And it's generally only in recent decades that the private lives of politicians have been laid out tabloid style and used in debate.

John Edwards situation was quite different in exposure (even if an affair is an affair without the cameras and TMZ). His wife and their story of loss was a beloved part of his political narrative, and he betrayed it so publicly, and with such a wack job that used it to propel herself into fame. There weren't sex tapes of the McCains floating around the talk shows, and he wasn't as respected in general as McCain had been. Just a disgrace all around, and sad for all of the children he fathered.

Thanx for your input Ready

I was just getting tired of hearing about what a great human McCain was.  Now I don’t think anyone would argue that he was a great American and a patriot.  But he also destroyed his marriage and family, which *never* seems to get mentioned. 

And Cindy McCain was his OW, yet she is never vilified.  I wonder how different things would have been if TMZ had existed then (?)

Is this a statement from someone in limerance or what?! Megan Fox, on Machine Gun Kelly:

'So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.'

She added: 'I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time.'

So, so deep, Megan.  Like something a teenage girl would write in her diary 😂

LOL--well I wouldn't know if Megan is actually MLC or not. But I will say, many many many MLCers are really into that twin flame thing. Maybe she's just crazy. You know, at a higher level.

She’s definitely weird if someone named MACHINE GUN is her “twin flame.”  Lol
