At this rate, John Edwards may never get to know his new(est) baby

The National Enquirer reports that John Edwards has reportedly decided "to have another child with the woman who destroyed his marriage," according to the Daily Mail.

"Rielle Hunter is reportedly hoping to become pregnant before Edwards' trial in April, after which he could be sentenced to up to 30 years in jail."

1. I so regret that I ever supported this putz (although his "two Americas" theme still resonates).

2. Why in the world would they try to have another child before knowing the outcome of the trial? Do they never think ahead?

3. If Rielle does end up pregnant, and Edwards is convicted and sent away for even 10 years, do they really want their child to get to know his/her dad during jail visitation hours?

4. Or during hospital visitation hours? He has a "life-threatening heart condition". Clearly, the pressures of new fatherhood would clear that right up.

5. Do John and Rielle ever think of anyone other than themselves?

6. See Number One.

     I even voted for him in the '08 IL primary.  IIRC, he was out there before other candidates on the need for health care reform, to address poverty and other issues. Since he had already lost his judgment by that time (& is certifiable now given above), maybe he was merely channeling Elizabeth?

    In any event, lots of people I respect supported him as well. We knew only what he showed us.

    Sad. And, yes, selfish. Quite.

    Now... what is that about two Americas...?

    I feel your pain - John Edwards is the only candidate I have ever donated money to - I really liked him and his message. Needless to say I wasn't happy when I found out my hard earned money probably went to hide his mistress. 😛
