RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- John Edwards' mistress Rielle Hunter didn't want him to run for president and considered it "reckless" for him to stay in the race after his wife's cancer returned, she said in an interview released Monday.

Hunter, in her first interview since Edwards admitted to the affair in 2008, told GQ magazine she and the former U.S. senator from North Carolina have been in love from February 2006 until now. Hunter said she told him he shouldn't run for the White House and suggested he at least wait until April 2007 because her intuition and astrology suggested he would have a difficult first three months of the year.

"I don't really believe he was a politician," Hunter said. "I believe his ego and ambition drove him to that field. I believe he's more aligned with being a humanitarian."

Rielle, your 15 minutes are up. No one cares, except maybe Elizabeth.

She’s just goofy looking.

Strange that a hotshot multimillionare politician would hook up with a brain damaged skank like Ms. Hunter. You would think he had plenty of other choices. What’s the deal here?

Just heard on the radio that Ms Hunter denied being a "Home Wrecker"...

Guess that means she doesn't think she's a whore either.
