Skip to comments.Kerry's Regrets About John Edwards

He was comfortable after his conversations with Gephardt, but even queasier about Edwards after they met. Edwards had told Kerry he was going to share a story with him that he'd never told anyone elsethat after his son Wade had been killed, he climbed onto the slab at the funeral home, laid there and hugged his body, and promised that he'd do all he could to make life better for people, to live up to Wade's ideals of service. Kerry was stunned, not moved, because, as he told me later, Edwards had recounted the same exact story to him, almost in the exact same words, a year or two beforeand with the same preface, that he'd never shared the memory with anyone else. .
On the day the Edwards pick was made public, Edwards and I talked for the first time since I had informed him of our decision to work for Kerry and he had reacted angrily. He said he knew I'd helped get him on the ticket and he was grateful. I told him that I welcomed the possibility that we might be friends again, but that wasn't the reason for my preference. I believed it was the right move for Kerry. Kerry's relationship with Edwards would sour after the electionand mine would simply fade away. When Elizabeth discovered she had breast cancer, John and Teresa reached out to help the Edwardses find the best doctors they could. Marylouise and I calledbut afterward, never heard from John again. Maybe we shouldn't have expected to. Kerry told me that the Edwardses simply stopped returning calls or talking to him and Teresa. Within months, Edwards started preparing for a bid in 2008. Kerry said that he wished he'd never picked Edwards, that he should have gone with his gut.

Kerry is most upset because John Edwards has his own money and didn’t have to marry into it. He also has better hair than Kerry, which isn’t saying much. Also, Edwards’ wife isn’t addicted to those gin-soaked raisins.
why, did he think only he had the mandate to treat reality like his own personal playground?
I think both men are rotten sick apples to the core.
God willing, American women will see through this disgusting manipulation and reject sexist politics.
That's enough for me. The guy needs a straight jacket.
Why in the heck is a liberal magazine like Time “dissing” John Edwards in this article?
what a phony! but i'm not surprised...
Remember Gore grew up in a hotel and was known to shower 5 times a day.
Algore still smells.
I think you’re right.
Just following orders from high up.
personally, i think Kerry has better hair... i don't think John Edwards has nice hair... it's too fine... and lacks body... i think Bill Clinton has better hair than both of them... not that i would vote for somebody based on their hair... i would vote for Dick Cheney and Fred Thompson before i'd vote for Kerry, Edwards and Clinton... (i know, this conversation is silly... please disregard my comments...)
Does this mean labeling him a flip flopper was wrong?
Y’know, if someone shared that kind of thing with me, I’d keep my trap shut about it—especially if I thought it would somehow end up in a National publication. Looks like Kerry couldn’t even do that. They both make me sick.
Because they have all their eggs in the Hillary basket for 2008.
