“Worst disgrace” seems like a major overstatement.
Worse than Blagojevich? Eric Holder’s Gun Walker? Obama and Clinton on the Benghazi coverup? Jack Abramoff bribery? Charlie Rangel? Jesse Jackson Jr.? William Jefferson? Trafficant?
Or, if you’re stuck on sex scandals ... John Edwards? Larry Craig? Elliot Spitzer? Anthony Weiner? Jim McGreevey? Mark Sanford? The Secret Service? Jack Ryan?
Petraeus is hardly the biggest desgrace. He had an affair. With a woman. That he didn’t pay. And, he wasn’t doing so behind his dying wife’s back. No bribery, embezzlement, or deaths of federal agents. An affair.
There are a lot bigger disgraces than Petraeus.
I get your point, SnakeDoc. All of the pols you mention were reprehensible. But Petraeus was the sitting CIA Director, the nation’s spy chief. I submit he was capable of doing more damage in his role than any of the others, save for maybe Holder.
