Character is destiny; both for an individual or nation. A nation that doesn't require character in its leaders- or an electorate that doesn't have a 'clue' what constitutes 'character'- soon finds itself with a corrupt, lawless government. Unfortunately, we are pretty much THERE...

It would have been far better for the good General to have stayed good in affairs marital, no doubt about it. The question about which Cal, Rush, and others muse is the liberal hypocrisy over it. Make up your minds please, lefties: is this bad behavior or not.
The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair has raised and will continue to raise a number of questions.

First among them (OK, maybe not first, national security being more important, but stay with me) is why should he have resigned? I am always amused when journalists use the words "sex scandal" when writing about such things. Having abandoned most standards for what used to be called "upright behavior," culture now "tsk-tsks" when someone is caught in a compromising position.

Bill Clinton didn't have to resign after the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He lied about their assignations...
