Edwards' daughter leaves courtroom in tears over testimony on Elizabeth Edwards
Fox News ^ | May 2, 2012

John Edwards' daughter left the courtroom in tears Wednesday as a former aide testified about an argument Edwards had with his now-deceased wife, Elizabeth, on the day a tabloid published a story on his affair.

Edwards turned to his daughter, Cate, as witness Christina Reynolds was beginning the account of the argument at the Raleigh airport. As Edwards asked if his daughter wanted to leave, Cate walked out of the room wiping her tears. She later returned to court after a recess.

"According to Nelson, John Edwards tried to get her to stop, saying, "Not in front of our friends," to which his wife responded, "They're not our friends. They're our staff."

Wow. Nasty b!tch to the end...

Sounds like they both deserved each other.

I agree.

Cavuto mentioned a poll where 3% had a favorable opinion of J. Edwards. And he said he was amazed at the results and wondered who the 3% are and why anybody would have a favorable view of him.

The only folks more trashy then the Edwards’ are the lying covering up MSM. As we used to say where I grew up, the only thing more despicable then a SOB was a lying SOB!

Are you familiar with this word:

You’ve grown into being a wonderful man, husband and I am proud to know.

“now even though i think GenX and Y white men cheat much less ...when they do there is no discretion as’s clumsy like tabloid TMZ stuff

hard to explain but things are far different now”


It was much easier to cheat before this ever advancing technology. lol

“I would actually meet folks who would tell me my dad was one of the few men they knew who did not...course he had married Miss cheat on pretty women too though and often with less pretty lovers”

Your dad was a good man, and a good role model. His parents dun brung him up right...and so did yours.

“maybe I am just insulated out here in past suburban Nashville ...”

Maybe you are, simply speaking, a happy man.

Remember the ambush Phone Call from Mrs. Edwards when Ann Coulter was on Crissy Matthew's Show?

Ann was set up by Crissy after she made the comment at CPAC about Edwards. I was sitting 10 feet in front of her at CPAC when she made the comment. I turned to the guy next to me and said “just wait until the Press distorts this”.

I wonder how the people who actually thought he was presidential material are feeling right about now..... both of them.

One of them was my sis, the social worker, who was mightily impressed with the "Two Americas" pitch. Edwards, she claimed, "really understands the problem."

In response to a recent question about how she rated Edwards now, though, she didn't seem to recognize the name...

Damage- that was an excellent although rarely mentioned movie.

And as it turned out it described events that occurred at Hillsdale College a few years later.

If I were his daughter and witnessed what he did to my mother and his denial of my half sister, I would have no other choice but to say, “You are on your own, Pop” and then go to pay my respects to my mother’s grave, knowing that his mere breathing hastened her tortured death. I am certainly no fan of Elizabeth Edwards but every daughter needs her mother.

Way to go Cowgirl...well said.
