WASHINGTON (CNN) - John Edwards took the stage at Indiana University on Tuesday night for a discussion on the 2008 presidential election, but members of the audience may have had something else on their minds entirely.

After all, this is the former North Carolina senator's first public appearance since his admission of an extramarital affair sent shockwaves through the political world more than three months ago.

The revelation, confirming a months-long investigation by the National Enquirer, was a political bombshell for the former candidate, who espoused moral values during his White House bid and whose wife is fighting a public battle with breast cancer.

    We all make mistakes. His personal life has nothing to do with his professional responsibilities.

    Bill Clinton did it......why not.

    At the beginning of the primary season I was truly having a problem deciding who I would vote for, Obama, Clinton or Edwards. I finally decided on Obama but would have happily voted for either of the other two had they won.

    When news was released about his affair I was devastated for Elizabeth Edwards and family. But that alone would not necessarily prevent a vote for him. What DOES prevent a vote is the hypocrisy. I'm tired of politicians making a big deal of ANY platform and then falling prey to their lies and moral superiority.

    Elizabeth . . . please be well. You're in our thoughts!
