Rielle Hunter Talks About ‘Johnny’ Edwards

He was once counted among the Democratic Party’s lineup of top presidential hopefuls for 2008, but then John Edwards met Rielle Hunter on the campaign trail, and his ensuing relationship with her (not to mention the inexhaustible efforts of the National Enquirer) changed the course of Edwards’ life.

When Politicians Have Way Too Much in Common With Paris Hilton

You know the drill: It all starts with the seductive glare of the klieg lights and the flashbulbs, followed by the ever-present entourage—stylists, publicists, various hangers-on—and the next thing you know, there’s a sex tape and someone’s career will never be the same ... as a politician, that is.

Is the National Enquirer’s Scoop on Edwards Pulitzer-Worthy?

To answer our own headline question: It remains to be seen whether this year’s Pulitzer Prize committee members think so, but the editors at the National Enquirer apparently believe that their tabloid’s coverage of John Edwards’ extramarital affair has a shot at journalistic glory.

Edwards Lays Out Aggressive Withdrawal Plan

When it comes to setting an exact timetable for withdrawing American forces from Iraq, some Democratic candidates are more forthcoming with the details than others.  Take John Edwards, for example, who told The New York Times about his ambitious plan to bring nearly all U.S. troops home within 10 months if he is elected president.

Elizabeth Edwards Strikes Back

Ann Coulter fielded a call-in by Elizabeth Edwards on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Tuesday night as Coulter sat with host Chris Matthews in front of a gaggle of young voters to discuss the ‘08 campaign.  Needless to say, Mrs. Edwards was none too thrilled with Coulter’s recent (and past) comments about her husband and family.

Bill Maher Says Mind Your Own Business

On last week’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher took on conservative personality Michael Smerconish to defend John and Elizabeth Edwards’ right to privacy: “Since they announced this last week, so many people have become experts on what you should do when you get sick, when I don’t think it’s really anybody’s business but theirs.”
