More on self-absorbed John Edwards
I concur with everything Ruth Marcus said about the unbelievably self-absorbed John Edwards. Just let me add to her list of things Quinn Hunter might understand when she's older. Such as how her father's narcissism led him not only to seek the presidency while having an affair with her mother. Such as how after her father's "Two Americas" campaign mantra fell flat (perhaps because while the message was right, the messenger was a phony) he tried to push then-Sen. Barack Obama into making him his vice presidential running mate. Such as how her father then lobbied the nascent Obama administration hard to become the attorney general of the United States. Such as how her father's carefully crafted Potemkin Village of a squeaky clean image could have brought down the ticket or severely hobbled the new administration if Edwards had succeeded in either quest. That Obama dodged potential calamity shows he's a good judge of character. That Edwards had the nerve to put his family, his party and his country at risk shows that Edwards lacks any.
