Well I guess you won't be checking out the John Edwards hot pic thread.. (let's just pretend that never existed )

Yeah he wasn't exactly living like Justice Souter..but I also don't think the size of his house precludes him from honestly caring about poverty. Besides, the Edge makes him look like a pauper..he pwns Edwards' house.

I think that'd be a stretch to call that NH house a log cabin

Well it appears he might admit to the paternity

That Andrew Young has a book proposal in which he says that Edwards knew all along that he was the baby's father (which was rather obvious) and he also claims that Edwards told Hunter he would marry her after Elizabeth died-in a rooftop ceremony in NYC w/ the Dave Matthews band providing the entertainment. Personally if someone cheated on me while I had cancer and then fathered a baby-well that's bad enough. But if I found out that he said something like that, well that would definitely make me head off as fast as possible to the divorce lawyer. There's just something about that statement that cuts like a knife. Would hurt me to the deepest depths of possible hurt.

RALEIGH, N.C. -Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards finally admitted Thursday he fathered a child during an affair before his second White House bid, dropping long-standing denials just ahead of a book by a former campaign aide who initially took the fall.
Edwards released a statement admitting paternity of the girl, Frances Quinn Hunter, who was born in 2008 to videographer Rielle Hunter as the result of an affair Edwards has already confessed to.
"It was wrong for me to ever deny she was my daughter," Edwards said, adding he was providing financial support for the child and mother. "I am Quinn's father."
Edwards adamantly denied during an interview with ABC News last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, and he welcomed a paternity test. He said then that the affair had ended in 2006. That year, Edwards' political action committee had paid Hunter's video production firm $100,000 for work.
Exactly how could Sarah Palin be a bigger train wreck than this guy who was on the 2004 Democratic ticket?

John Edwards: Okay, I fathered that child.

Everybody Else: Yeah, tell us something we don't know.

I don't know why you're comparing him to Palin. Just because Palin is a train wreck doesn't mean that nobody else can be a train wreck, too.

because she's a deluded, pathological liar with a 5th grader's grasp on history and a keen sense of how to whip up white anger at shadowy "not real Americans" and was selected to be the heir to the presidency by a 70-something cancer survivor?

and she's making a shit ton of money off you folks.

Find me one democrat who doesn't acknowledge that this guy is a scumbag.


There's the difference, folks. In the face of hard evidence, at least we admit it.

exactly. the difference between him and palin is that most (all?) democrats are distancing themselves from the train wreck, where as the republicans can't resist cracking a fat over sarah.

And you many of you don't see the difference form Edwards being morally bankrupt and flat out lying to the American people

and Sarah being not just smart enough for some, was her Govenorship of Alaska a complete disaster? are they bankrupt?

The common denominator may be lies about paternity.

Edwards told flat out lies about his baby

And flat out lies were told about Palin's baby, not by her, but her detractors, she was the victim.

Edwards is a morally bankrupt scumbag who has done deplorable things in his personal life (and this is coming from someone who generally doesn't think that the extracurricular sex lives of politicians should be of any concern to the public - although I do find it mockworthy when they're politicians of the family values ilk), but one who knows and understand politics, history, world geopolitics, etc.

On the other hand, Sarah Palin is just an idiot, manipulative, vengeful and divisive, for the many reasons stated already.

I'm not responsible for the speculations of bloggers, or what they say about her, much of which quickly died down, I might add, except for the most conspiracy theory-minded among them, and of those, who is even listening to them, anyway?

If forced to choose, IMO, she's far more offensive politically than he is.

I think more presidential candidates should be lifelong bachelors and/or spinsters (no, not the nicest appelation, but my meaning should be clear).

That would clear up a lot of the fuss.

Who really has time for family anyway, in that job. There really ought to be a co-presidency like they did with the rule of ancient Rome... anything up to four, maybe five office holders dedicated to varying aspects ceremonial, military and domestic.

and the Right would have us believe that Poor Sarah was "attacked" by EVERYONE ON THE LEFT when it was an anonymous post at Daily Kos and Andrew Sullivan.

i guess that's EVERYONE ON THE LEFT.

because if there's one thing that Republicans can't stand, it's a victim mentality.
