In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 42-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter’s baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.

Edwards said he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby’s birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.

A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.

Well, it’s his personal business and he only lied about sex and he did it to spare his family.

Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife's cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter.

So that made it okay??

What a slime.

Unfortunately, if her condition is terminal as reported, she won't be around to enjoy it. Sad.

And ABC News is also reporting he denies the child is his and the affair had previously ended. (If so why did you go visit her this summer, John??)

And he’s STILL LYING !!

Claims “he does not love her”

Claims he is not the father.

implied the affair was in the past.

Claims he isn’t paying her to keep quiet.

So what the hell would he doing in the hotel room of a ex-mistress, with whom he has no romantic or financial ties, who someone else had subsequently knocked up, at two thirty in the morning?

“A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.”

Gads...she’s a frickin groupie. Probably got hired for this “pass-around” attitude.

Campaigns and rock-and-roll tours. Now we know why BillyJeff wants to keep campaigning.

Clinton operatives @ National Enquirer have essentially moved Edwards out of the way of Hillary. Edwards stands no chance at VP much less as AG. Hillary may become the de facto VP choice as she could be seen to strengthen currently a very weak ticket.

As for Edwards, a 28,000 sq ft house probably has its share of places he could endure without ever having to face Liz....

Terminal doesn’t necessarily mean her demise is coming soon, though. For example, my mother had the same condition, with the cancer going to areas where it could not be eliminated, but with treatment, lived for another 15 years. My mother, unlike Ms. Edwards, was older, needed two hip replacements, and ultimately died of an infection due to kidney disease. The cancer was terminal in the sense that she still had it, but it did not kill her, despite all of the years that passed.

It is really tragic for a family to be drug through the mud so publicly. Prayers for the Edwards family to work this out in the best interest of the children.

It was probably another pathetic, liberal infiltrator. The poor spelling was the first clue.
