Well, there it is

In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter's baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.

He admits the affair but not being the father? Now take the fucking paternity test!

Edwards, this is one of the biggest let downs in the history of politics! You won't get away with it, You're not a sitting Senator anymore! Only decrepit diaper wearing David Vitter's and bathroom stall creeps like Larry Craig do!! Your wife has cancer... the little head doing the thinking for the big head? It's fucking weak dude and you're just a dog like the other cheating men.

And to think I wanted you for President!!

Major bummer.

He walked into his session at Yearlykos last year and the first thing he said was "I just spoke to Elizabeth and she wants everyone to know she's doing fine.".

What a prick.

And Edwards was our safe choice. Crap.

He was so extremely selfish in this. What if he had won the nomination - he would have totally fucked the Dems and the country.

The epitome of selfishness.

After calming down... I really wanted Mr. and Mrs. Edwards to have a position in Obama's cabinet. I guess there is still hope for Mrs. Edwards.

It's unlikely - she's not 'sick', but her condition makes it difficult for her to say with certainty that she could faithfully be an effective cabinet member.

Her best bet is working day-to-day, week-to-week as a prominent spokesperson for health care reform, outside of the government, like what Al Gore is doing for the environment. And truth be told, she'll probably be more effective outside.

And John can now away into the total obscurity that is deservedly his now.
