Who holds . . .

. . . the moral high ground?

John Edwards is resisting a plea bargain that would reduce possible jail time, but would obviously result in the revocation of his license to practice law.  This is "according to people with knowledge of the negotiations who spoke on a condition of anonymity because they are supposed to be private."

We know about Edwards, obvously.  The infidelity during his wife's illness.  Encouraging someone else to take responsibility for the child.  Payoffs.  Coverups. 

No argument there.  There are anthills higher than Edwards' moral high ground.

But what of the twats who hide behind anonymity to divulge private matters? 

And, what of the reporters who rely on them?

To answer my original question - none of the above.
