Smooth move, ex-candidate

This news would probably have hurt John Edwards' campaign for president a lot more if... what... oh, right: If he were still running for president.

As it is, I think it's actually just an admission by a rich lawyer dude that he stepped out on his wife while she's battling cancer. Very classy.

UPDATE: Here's a kinda interesting blog post from last fall on MediaBistro's L.A. site that sheds light on Edwards' gal-on-the-side. Hint to future presidential candidates: If your potential affair goes by names as unsimilar as Rielle Hunter and Lisa Druck, she might cause trouble down the line.

The woman seems like a stand-up citizen, too, having sex with $400 haircut man + his staffer. Classy all the way around.

Thank god he isn't still a candidate....however it would have provided another (WARNING: "DOUBLE ENTENDRE ALERT")classic moment when another candidate states that they are "Pulling out" of the race due to a sexual affair....ummmm, if you need an explanation of this reference, please contact Your Escalator Operator.
