Mr. Edwards’ career has not been without its missteps. He has, like all of us at one time or another, made his share of mistakes. His opposition to a nationwide military draft, for instance.

What follows are 10 (satirical) reasons The Onion approves of Edwards' affair. And because I am the faint of heart, I'll let you click the link below if you want to see them for yourself.
