Inside the Edwards Trainwreck……the book 'The Politician'….

I had to post that headline from PoliticalWire…..He, he, he…..

Here’s the piece…..

The Wall Street Journal gets an early copy of Andrew Young’s tell-all  book about working as an aide to John Edwards for nearly a decade.

A few choice highlights from The Politician:

The locals: Edwards is an Atkins-dieter who hated making appearances at state fairs where “fat rednecks try to shove food down my face. I know I’m the people’s senator, but do I have to hang out with them?”

The hair: “Naturally thick and lustrous, his hair was a fixation with him. He insisted on using just one kind of shampoo — HairTec Thick & Strong Shampoo for Fine, Fragile Hair.”

The confrontation: Elizabeth Edwards answered a cell phone call to hear Rielle Hunter who “launched into a romantic monologue.” Elizabeth confronted her husband who “confessed to having had a one-night stand but didn’t say with whom.” He called Hunter in front of his wife to end it, but later called her back to say he didn’t mean it.

The video: Young describes his discovery of a compromising videotape of Edwards and a naked, pregnant lover: “It was like watching a traffic pileup occur in slow motion — it was repelling but also transfixing.”

I was for him for VP with Kerry…But after that things went downward….The guy was just too slick…..

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.”

Also……

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…

John Edwards IS the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby……..

While the former Senator, and Presidential aspirant has never owned up to it….Ms. Hunter is trying to get money out of Edwards for fathering her child….the fact they are in court now points clearly to the fact that Edwards did have a relationship with Ms. Hunter , while his wife was fighting for her life against cancer….it’s their business…but I’m glad this guy never made it to the White House as Vice President, or President……….

Note: Ms. Hunter is asking for $17,000 a month…..wow!

Finally!…….Elizabeth Edwards may file for a Divorce!

Listen…the story is from the National Enquirer right now…so we have to wait…but if it proves true, its about time…

Guys cheat on their wives…a lot of politicians do…guys have babies with other women…a lot of politicians do…but most of the ones that stay married…fess up to their wives…and spend their time in the dog house…and are truly sorry for their ‘Johnson’ problems…..one get the impression that that is not the case here in the fact that Edwards denied , vehemently that he was a party to this….

Add to this the fact that his wife stood by him believing his story, while being involved a fight for her life against cancer……

The guy is just too slick for me……and she needs to find someone else to be her partner…….
