Edwards has always come across to me as an ambulance chasing scumbag who cannot be trusted so I'm not sure why anyone is suprised by his disgusting behavior. He was caught red handed by the National Enquirer and most people weren't buying his denial of the allegations so admitting to his 'mistake' was something he had to do. I watched the interview and I don't believe most of what he said. I don't believe that he told his wife and family of the affair in '06 and until I see a paternity test result that proves otherwise, I believe the child IS his.
Edwards must think that people are dumb because in his interview he said he couldn't be sure that the photo in the Enquirer was him ... he said it
looked like him, but he claims that he wore a long sleeve shirt to that meeting and never held the baby. His claim that he has held thousands of
babies over the last several years and it's possible that it is a photo from the campaign trail of him holding a baby in a photo op is ludicrous.
The curtains behind him are a signature of the Beverly Hills Hilton and I think it's fair to assume that he was holding the baby of his mistress in
that hotel room the day he admitted to meeting with them. Why he would lie about holding the baby of his mistress is not really clear but IMHO he is
lying and he has zero crediblilty.
I don't know how many Edwards supporters there are/were on ATS but I would be curious to hear how those of you who did vote for Edwards in the
primary feel about his affair, his denial of it, then his admission of it but denial of some of the details.
Edwards, plain and simple, is scum. He should not be allowed to serve in any political office and never again should he be trusted by the American
