John Edwards: plumbing new depths of cynicism

EDWARDS' CRUEL WIFE JAB: REPORT - New York Post: "Just before the former presidential contender confessed his adultery to ABC News on Aug. 8, he secretly flew Rielle Hunter and her 6-month-old child, Frances Quinn, from California to the US Virgin Islands, according to the National Enquirer, which first exposed their affair.

And after the interview, in which he denied loving Hunter or fathering the baby, he called her to say, 'We'll be together when Elizabeth is gone,' the tabloid reported."

It appears that Edwards has set up a neat little arrangement with Ms. Hunter that is going to come to fruition after his wife dies. In the meantime, he lies about the whole thing and Hunter just stays in hiding. Quite a guy. I wonder how his supporters feel about him now. I also wonder if they are questioning their own judgment, as they should, because it was obvious long ago that Edwards was the most dishonest candidate for president in memory. Many columnists were pointing out that he had simply reversed himself on every issue and remade his image between 2004 and 2007, going from centrist to leftist because he saw the market for that kind of candidate. This man has no soul.
