Edwards to return to public eye

Posted November 10, 2008

— Former presidential candidate John Edwards will make his first public appearance in three months on Tuesday when he makes an address at Indiana University.

Edwards, a Chapel Hill resident and former U.S. senator from North Carolina, is scheduled to speak about the results of last week's elections. The talk is open to the public and will be followed by a question-and-answer session, officials said.

Edwards has stayed out of the public eye since early August, when he disclosed an extramarital affair with a woman hired to film videos for his unsuccessful run for the White House.

    So John Edwards cheats on his sick wife, she finds out about it and forgives him. On June 30, 2007 they renew vows on their 30th anniversary.

    John Edwards’ dramatic Nov 2007 press conference announced that his wife Elizabeth’s dreaded breast cancer had returned, but that the couple decided he should press on. So sad that he used her like this, knowing full well he was still cheating on poor Elizabeth.
    Had the National Enquirer not been on top of this story, no telling what all else would be going on.

    Forgive a chronic lier - I don't find that we as Christians need to do that. He needs to get his act together and leave us all alone - I didn't miss him and never will.

    I din't miss him did you? He needs to find a big black hole and fall in. Worthless as he is, go away.

    So, John Edwards is human like the MILLIONS OF OTHER MEN AND WOMEN in this country who lied about cheating after they got caught.

    GET OVER YOURSELVES, hypocrites.

    "Anyway, sure, we've now found out that Edwards is a slimeball, but that doesn't change the fact that he has done great work and still has great things to say. I'd rather hear him speak than the hateful people on GOLO."

    Sorry, I wasn't aware of anything he ever did for anyone except John Edwards. You care to elaborate on those "great things"? I'd like to hear them.

    Maybe his is looking for property in Indiana. They can have him. He is just another reason insurance rates are high and then has the nerve to talk about health care.

    As for forgiving him, it isnt up to me to forgive his sins against Elizabeth. It is all hers to forgive and forget. I just say it speaks to his character as a person.
