Bigger question is whether he actually did anything more than just a dinner.

AARON BROWN, HOST: Good evening again, everyone.
We begin tonight with a confession: I dated John Edwards' wife. Well, not dated like plural, dated like singular. We went out to dinner. Well, we didn't actually go out to dinner. We went to a dinner, just the two of us -- and 2,000 other people.

It was one of those correspondents dinners in Washington where you get all gussied up in a tux and pretend to enjoy yourself, and she was my date. Everyone brings a date to these things. Greta brought Ozzy Osbourne, but I'm not that cool, so I asked Mrs. Edwards.

She was great. She was smart and funny and down to earth. We talked a little politics, a little about living in the public eye. Her husband's presidential campaign had just ended. We talked a lot that night about child rearing.

No one votes for a president based on the vice presidential candidate's wife. Darn few vote for president based on the vice president at all. I know I don't. But when my daughter asks me if I know Senator Edwards, I'll smile and say, "Not really, but I dated his wife."

And did you hear Kerry say today "...and we have better hair." LOL

I couldn't believe it when I heard it on the radio at the top of the hour. What an idiot.

I dated John Edwards' wife. I didn't date John Edwards' wife. We went out to dinner. We didn't...blah blah blah...

With this kind of blather, Aaron doesn't need to reveal who he's voting for. Even liberal newsmen are flip flops.

She ought to wear black. It's more flattering.

That said, after everything she went through, she probably handles stress by eating.

The way Democrats have sex is that they sit on the edge of the bed and promise it's going to be really, really good when they get in.

I had the exact same response. That little smirk, like we're in on some snide joke with him. I end up watching him for at least a few minutes every night because I generally don't turn the TV on until about 10:00. MSNBC and CNBC are all talk shows at that hour and Fox is all Laci Peterson.

Yeah, and has he ever been out to dinner with a conservative officeholder, or the wife or wife-to-be thereof? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Isn't THAT the truth...With all that money, you would think she could have had some plastic surgery.

Ms. Edwards appears a bit chunky and has been seen hiding behind large flowing robes and other tent-like clothes. I suspect we will soon hear of some escapades by the Junior Senator from NC after seeing the fire plug he is married to. Ms. "Pickle" has to be pinching herself for having to stand on the same podium with the Pillsbury dough girl..

Brown's probably bragging because it's the only hetero date he ever had.

Edwards has held his age well but I wonder how his wife will take it when the public hears of another sex scandal if he's elected?

Actually, two hair comments were made by J. France Kerry today. The one you refer to and another to the effect "it's nice to have somebody else with hair on the road with me".

Raise foot, point gun, fire at will.

It was the one soundbite they played over and over today when talking about the rally. I can't believe that liberals thought that that was an impressive thing to say. Great hair is not going to win the war on terror.

Irrelevant is a fine word to sum up Kerry.

WHat she looks like now does not necessarily have any relation to how she looked in her pre-marriage days.
