The Republicans ought to demand that General Patreus be replaced by... General Patreus. Call it the Clinton precedent. If Bill Clinton can be president after dodging the draft, smoking dope, cheating on his wife every chance he got and raping Juanita Broaddrick, certainly General Patreus can continue with his job at the CIA after a simple affair. At least Patreus had a CONSENSUAL affair with a woman old enough to know what she was doing. No perjury. No obstruction of justice. No state troopers. Oh, and I think Bill Clinton was about a million times more blackmailable than Patreus. Clinton is a coward. Patreus is a patriot.
Sorry about the spelling above. It’s David Petraeus.
