John Edwards: Cold-Hearted Or Clueless?

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – People may assume cheating politician John Edwards is insensitive, but really, he’s just clueless.

According to psychiatrist Mark Goulston, author of Just Listen (AMACOM), the adulterous Democrat suffers from “Asperger’s-like” syndromes that make him foolishly unaware of the pain he’s causing others, including his own wife Elizabeth Edwards.

Goulston says someone with features of Asperger’s Syndrome is so focused on meeting their goals, their mind doesn’t compute that they could be hurting others in the process.

Edwards could see his scandals as a way to advance his career and reach his goals, and isn’t intentionally trying to hurt his family.

Says Goulston: “He’s literally clueless.”

Luckily, those with Asperger’s-like features can eventually get with it.

Goulston says loved ones can “train” them to understand the consequences and pain that results from their actions.

He believes Bill Clinton once suffered from the same clinical cluelessness, but was able to move past it.
