Ross Douthat, in the Atlantic, is less than sympathetic.
You stay classy, John Edwards:
Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.
Also, he made a point of telling Woodruff that he remained the son of a mill worker throughout the entire affair.
It looks like they won’t have Flem Snopes to kick around anymore.
Hat tip to Frank Dobbs.
