    By the way, if you had looked a little higher in this thread, on this page, you would have seen this:

    I think if the same thing had happened to other out of office contenders like Fred Thompson, Jim Gilmore, or Tommy Thompson it would've garnered about the same response. Anyway, at least the dems rejected Edwards long before this came about.

    Ohh look what I found which looking up news articles,
    dang that is one cutie pie! (...the baby, not Edwards)

    thanks, but that's quite a stretch, friend

    the enquirer ran the story for a year BEFORE they busted him in the bathroom of the beverly hilton

    the breck boy, by the way, was still being considered for obama's veep in july of 08

    National Enquirer alleges John Edwards affair; blogosphere readies salt shaker | Opinion L.A. | Los Angeles Times

    by the time edwards went on abc to mea culpa his menu of misrepresentations, cnn had STILL never run the story

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Edwards_extramarital_affair]John Edwards extramarital affair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]


    the point---if you can't see an EAGERNESS on the part of msm to headline the toe tapping senator from idaho and boy-paging congressman from florida juxtaposed against a RELUCTANCE to cover mr breck and his love child and his tug of war in a public restroom with the natl enquirer (LOL!), well, more power to you, friend

    look at it this way---hundreds, maybe thousands of derogatory stories about mrs palin and her daughters

    daily fodder for the comics

    and STILL edwards is allowed to operate in the dark

    they're not even covering these grand jury proceedings

    he tried just recently to re-up his career, for cryin out loud, march, 2009

    More details:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/20/us...ards.html?_r=1

    Mr. Edwards, the one-term senator who came close to being elected vice president in 2004 and ran a credible campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, remains largely secluded at his 100-acre estate here.

    But a federal grand jury in nearby Raleigh is investigating whether any crimes were committed in connection with campaign laws in an effort to conceal his extramarital affair with a woman named Rielle Hunter. At the same time, Mr. Edwards is moving toward an abrupt reversal in his public posture; associates said in interviews that he is considering declaring that he is the father of Ms. Hunter’s 19-month-old daughter, something that he once flatly asserted in a television interview was not possible.
    According to people familiar with the grand jury investigation, prosecutors are considering a complicated and novel legal issue: whether payments to a candidate’s mistress to ensure her silence (and thus maintain the candidate’s viability) should be considered campaign donations and thus whether they should be reported. When Mr. Edwards was running for president, and even later when he still held out hope of a senior cabinet position in the Obama administration, two of his wealthy patrons, through a once-trusted Edwards aide, quietly provided Ms. Hunter with large financial benefits, including a new BMW and lodging, that were used to keep her out of public view.

    Mr. Edwards dismissed an initial report in The National Enquirer in 2007 that he was having an affair, and the matter was largely ignored by the mainstream news media. But in July 2008, The Enquirer published an article with photographs of a clandestine meeting Mr. Edwards had with Ms. Hunter and her daughter in a Los Angeles hotel. Days later, Mr. Edwards acknowledged the affair to “Nightline” on ABC, offering contrition but insisting that the child could not be his because of the timing and brevity of their intimacy.
    The notion that Mr. Edwards is the father has been reinforced by the account of Andrew Young, once a close aide to Mr. Edwards, who had signed an affidavit asserting that he was the father of Ms. Hunter’s child.

    Mr. Young, who has since renounced that statement, has told publishers in a book proposal that Mr. Edwards knew all along that he was the child’s father. He said Mr. Edwards pleaded with him to accept responsibility falsely, saying that would reduce the story to one of a political aide’s infidelity.
    And that's suborning perjury. Nice work.

    In the proposal, which The New York Times examined, Mr. Young asserts that he assisted the affair by setting up private meetings between Mr. Edwards and Ms. Hunter. He wrote that Mr. Edwards once calmed an anxious Ms. Hunter by promising her that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band.
    Jesus christ edwards is a scumbag.

    At one point, Mr. Young wrote, Mr. Edwards asked Mr. Baron if he could find a doctor who would falsify a DNA report.
    On the plus side, he apparently hasn't forgotten his trade as a plaintiff's lawyer.
