I liked this so much. You don't get to hear Elizabeth laugh as much as she did on this program. The guys were pretty funny.

It was great to hear Elizabeth's sense of humor but it seems more pain is on the way. Andrew Young is supposedly shopping a book deal about how he agreed to cover up for Edwards: http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2009-06-21/john-edwards-baby-daddy-to-tell-all/?cid=hp:featurelineIt is so sad! Edwards needs to tell all and put an end to it. I can't imagine the pain his family is enduring.

Edwards is not admitting anything he can't prove. That was his MO as a lawyer: to prepare sometimes to the point of overdoing it, and if you were a lawyer you'd be a FOOL to admit something about yourself without proof. He's ashamed of himself, as much for his acting so out-of-character it was as if he'd forgotten everything he ever stood for, as anything else. He's showing regret-- which is more than RH, who is looking more and more like a sociopath each day, has ever shown.I don't think a mea culpa from him-- especially right now-- will improve in any way how we see him. A negative DNA result will. Evidence of him continuing his work for the poor will. The one thing that's going to be toughest for him to shake, sans baby, is the possibility he could have handed the election to McCain if he were the nominee.Mea culpas do not always make things better. At the wrong time and the wrong place, they can make matters worse. How many times have you mea-culpa'd or explained yourself, and ended up damaging your own credibility rather than bolstering it? Why do we have such an allergy to "trying too hard", especially with emotional matters? Because we know that timing and delivery is everything in that arena, and that exerting strenuous effort can be counterproductive.

This looks like it will never end. I think these people do this (AY & RH) just to get blackmail money. If this goes away soon you know they were paid off again.This affair has cost JE, his family, friends and supporters too much. I can't imagine she was worth it.The money it has cost is incredible. She has accused JE of being this child's father so often that JE has a right to go to court and get a DNA test without her consent. The court will order it and he knows that. Or he could just hire a PI to get the child's DNA and know the answer before he goes to court or pays anymore money. I think neither one knows for sure and that's why the cat and mouse game. If the child isn't JE's, RH loses blackmail money. If she is his, if I were him I'd sue for full custody. JE's family values are a lot better than anything mom's family and friends can provide unless you want to teach the girl to be a grifter and chase married men. If she sues him for a large sum of money, I'd sue for permanent custody.

I had so much fun and laughter listening to this program. It was, also, wonderful to hear Elizabeth Edwards's beautiful laughter. Thanks ever so much, Benny.
