According to WRAL News, a North Carolina news outfit, John Edwards is expected to admit he is the father of the 18 month old daughter of his former mistress, Reille Hunter. Poor Elizabeth.
Interesting quote from Edwards about the Clinton/Lewinsky affair in 1999: “I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen.” Didn’t seem to bother him that he was having an affair while running for office, though.
