What a loser. I glad we now know which of his heads he was using to make his decisions when he was running for president.

John Edwards is a world-class turd. Who can forget his deep-drawl campaign zinger: "Elizabeth is the love of my life." Anything to get elected. Such bad Karma.
I never thought I'd say this, but: Thank you, National Enquirer!

Another dumbass...threw it all away for a piece of ass! AND told his mistress that when his wife died, they would get together! As per the book....

He'll lose his political career once re-elections come up...then it's back to lawyering....but who will hire him?

I bet the worst part of this whole thing for him is that this woman that he cheated with isn't a gorgeous babe. He just strikes me as the type who won't be seen with her because she's not good looking enough.
When he had her in hiding (actually living with Andrew Young and family), the dude who was paying her on John's behalf DIED, so he had no one to cover for him anymore. Can this guy's luck get any worse??? Is that poetic justice, or WHAT??? HA HA HAHAHAHAHA

He's sad???? What a d-bag; what about how his wife felt when she found out he was f***ing another woman while she was fighting cancer.

What a piece of crap he is. He better stay sad forever because if anyone gets wind of the fact he is seeing or running around with that baby's ugly mother, it will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt what a piece of lying garbage he is - even now.

What a loser. Elizabeth appears to be a kind, loving and compassionate woman. I always thought he was skeevy .... something about him always bothered me. I hope Elizabeth beats her cancer and lives a happy and fun life.

Well perhaps if he's sad and this is a sad moment.. maybe he should have kept it in his pants.. there is nothing more cruel or basterdly then to cheat on your dying wife.. may God bless mrs edwards and i hope her last days are peaceful and that she has rest in the knowledge that he will have to pay for his sins one day..

Just has to have her, right?
