    I have been confronted with the opportunity to cheat. I was able to say no by measuring what I would gain by what I would lose. Once you start to look at it in that light it gets much easier to say to yourself "it's just not worth it." She was pretty but she was not worth the wreckage. After all how do you look your son/daughter in the eye after doing that and tell him/her "I'm sorry I ruined your life and left you with deep emotional scars that will never heal....but she was really hot."?

    Now with that said, I was sober when confronted with the opportunity. atctimmy quit drinking because atctimmy was not very good at saying no when into the sauce (before I was married I wrecked a few nice relationships that way).

    atctimmy became a Christian after meeting his spouse...in a bar.

    I feel compelled to clarify that my previous declaration of fidelity was by no means a suggestion that I have not been a completely rotten person in other areas of my life.

    Unlike many political leaders, at least he had the brass to quit... many military know where the buck stops and even though he was thinking with the wrong head at one time, he did the right thing in the end... Good for him. Even though he screwed up, I have respect for his decisions...

    Really? All he had to do is resign for any reason.

    Nice work, on not cheating, on quitting the booze, and on meeting a good woman.

    Let me just say this though. You said you have been confronted with one opportunity to cheat. These high level politicians can go virtually anywhere and women will literally throw themselves at them. I'm not talking about developing a relationship with a female coworker over the course of several months and having an affair. I'm talking about these guys showing up at some hipster bar in Georgetown on a Thursday and having every lawyer/student/capitol hill staffer willing to throw down just to say they did. Famous and powerful are a nice combination of attributes.

    Also, there is probably more to the story.

    I know it's not the same. Athletes/rich/famous live in a different world. I get it.

    However, even though I'm not super good looking or super cool, "it" always seemed to fall into my lap. I changed my lifestyle in order to avoid "it". There are many famous/rich guys who can keep it in their pants.

    From the thread title, I thought it would have been Benghazi that caused the resignation, as in resign or be fired because you are getting the blame.

    Mulle46 I think you may be more correct than the headline. I find it hard to believe that it is in the news that the General and the wife of the aforementioned POTUS are both resigning without thinking of some links to Libya.

    I think the blame will be assigned at the already scheduled hearings (next week?). It's always easier to assign blame if your scapegoat has been previously disgraced.

    I was thinking along the same lines. It seems too convenient that he is resigning a few days before he was scheduled to testify at the closed door session of the intelligence committee. But maybe that is my conspiracy theory side kicking in.

    On another note, what do we know about Acting Director Michael Morell? The name seems familiar. Was he involved in F&F?

    I knew heads would roll at some point about Libya, after the election regardless of result.
