commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

John Edwards man’s up….it’s his kid…He’s left his wife…..

In a statement timed to preempt a new book by a former aide, John Edwards admitted paternity of a daughter with former mistress Rielle Hunter, despite his previous denials.

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.”

“It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future.”

“To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.”


Elizabeth Edwards, whose cancer returned in an incurable form in March 2007, has stood by her husband, saying it does not matter to her whether her husband fathered a child with Hunter.

“That would be a part of John’s life, but not a part of mine,” she said. The couple renewed their wedding vows in July of 2007 to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.

But NBC reported that friends of the family say Edwards and his wife have separated.

The guy was always too slick for me…….

My heart goes out Elizabeth Edwards…..who isn’t an angel…but doesn’t deserve this…..neither does his grown kids…
