Sad when the National Enquirer is the only newspaper doing journalism.

It can't be. You have to have sex with a woman for that to happen.

If it is his I can’t imagine this sits well with the mistress. Then again, a woman that would take up with such a guy....who knows.

If he wants to put it to rest then he needs to do the paternity test.

He said it happened in 2006, and he told his wife then that he did it but he didn’t love her.

What a POS...

So his position now on the affair and child is a matter of nuance, right?

I’ve been in love with the same woman for 30-plus years,” Edwards added, about his wife Elizabeth, who is suffering from incurable cancer, “and as anybody who’s been around us knows, she’s an extraordinary human being, warm, loving, beautiful, sexy and as good a person as I have ever known. So the story’s (affair and child) just false.”

I would rather he have been caught in the men room at Atlanta Hartsfield tapping his toe and flipping his pompadour, but this will do just fine if it ends his presence on the National scene.

Lucky for Mr. Edwards that he has that really big house. He must have plenty of couches to chose from when he goes to sleep. Imagine explaining this to Elizabeth Edwards. But, she might have known all along.

Although, this affair, most likely, is like the tip of the proverbial iceberg. He just got caught on this one.

Maybe, short of a DNA test, she can’t say for sure who is the father. Wouldn’t be the first time a woman was DATING two (or more) men simultaneously.

This slug had the audacity to think he could do a Clinton and hide this stuff while running for POTUS.

Nobody can out slut Bill Clinton and get away with it.

So when the kid gets older, he'll have the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that his father denied being his father in order to hang on to the tattered remains of a miserable political career.

Yes, that John Edwards is a fine guy all around...

You said it!

The media should be absolutely ashamed. They ignored this and tried to play it off as non-news, when if it were a Republican candidate, they’d be all over it. Wife with cancer? Affair?

I’m sick of the MSM shilling the Democrat Party. I hope they are all embarrassed with themselves and how unprofessional they truly are.

He should have admitted this in an interview with the Enquirer so everyone in the MSM could have gone on pretending .

Does anyone remember when John Edwards would campaign with his daughter (before Elizabeth became famous) and wouldnt point out that it was his daughter? The inference being she was his wife (and more attractive).

Only a Democrat.....
