Heres my thoughts on the issue. I am going to defend (sort of) Edwards. Or rather, he and his family. He is not running for president anymore. He is not a sitting senetor. I don't even think he is a practicing lawyer these days. He is a private citizen like the rest of us. What he did was wrong on so many levels, but he did it to his family. We've been tolds, now the press should just leave it alone. The family is dealing with enough as it is. for them to continualy harp on it is only demonstrating a sensationalist blood thirsty crusaide.

Johnny Boy got his hand caught in the cookie jar. Edwards used his wife as a political prop. Edwards used this image of a loving husband having to deal with both a Presidential campaign and his wife's cancer. Yet it was just one big fraud, he did not support his wife when she needed him the most. One last thing if Edwards did not love Rielle Hunter I am guessing he just used her too.
