The Remission Defense

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.

Anyway, the important thing is that it's not as bad as Chappaquidick, right? Edwards in 2012 - the dream will never die!
