Good God saved us.Edwards was absolutely determined to prove to the sheeple that he was far and away the best candidate for US president since he was supposedly so totally honest, completely sincere, and the epitome of integrity, and so therefore he was also totally and completely willing to engage in any and all necessary lies, frauds, and types of money laundering so as to "prove" to the sheeple that he was as honest and sincere as could be.
While the history of politics is loaded to the rafters with phonies, demagogues, charlatans, and pathological liars similar to Edwards whose entire lives were based on fraud and fakery, however Edwards, and perhaps only because he had the unexpected bad luck of Hunter getting pregnant, AND THEN THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER PUBLICIZING, AND RATHER THAN COVERING UP, THE FACTS, was exposed for the phony he was.
However the overwhelming majority of the biggest liars, demagogues, and charlatans in politics are never exposed and instead continue getting away with their lies and phony acting forever.
In other words if Hunter had not gotten pregnant, it is very likely that John "The World Class Phony and Pathologial Liar" Edwards would have eventually become the president of the United States, and if not in 2008, then perhaps later, and such as perhaps in 2016, and if not president than Vice President or Attorney General.
And if had not ever become president, then perhaps instead that totally corrupt world class pathological liar, phony, crook, money launderere, and backroom fixer would have eventually even ended up on the US Supreme Court.
We were also spared the traitor long-face Kerry & now we need to unite and get rid of the muslim in chief. Send him back. Replace him with anyone.
