This week we asked readers to help us figure out why now former CIA Director David Petraeus cheated on his wife of 37 years with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

The largest response ironically received 37.6 percent of the vote. It was: “This always happens with men in powerful positions. Think Bill Clinton, John Edwards and that idiot Gary Condit, who slept with an intern who was then murdered.”

Next up with 23 percent: “Broadwell’s a hottie and Petraeus got lucky. It’s as simple as that.” Rolling in at 2.5 percent was this response: “His affair clearly stems from a post-traumatic stress disorder from his time in Iraq.”
