With those three words, John Edwards apparently decided to cheat on his wife. At least that is the way he told Elizabeth Edwards it happened. Of course he also told her it only happened once and he probably also told her that he isn't the father of Rielle Hunter's baby and that the reception must have been bad and that's why he didn't hear the cell phone ring.
The long awaited book from Elizabeth Edwards is coming out on May 12th and as expected she does talk about the affair. She says Edwards told her right after he announced he was running for President and about a year before The Enquirer broke the story. She told him he shouldn't run and of course he didn't listen.
He must have been seeing Rielle Hunter for a very long time, but apparently despite Elizabeth crying, screaming and throwing up when she heard the news, she seems to have forgiven him. Is it because of the kids? Isn't he still seeing Rielle? How can she keep putting up with it? Maybe she thinks he sees her just because of the baby. Nowhere in the book does she talk about who the father of the baby is. To me, that means it is John Edwards' baby. If it wasn't, don;t you think she would say? Just to make that story die.
One of the reasons she has forgiven him is that, "I lie in bed, circles under my eyes, my sparse hair sticking in too many directions, and he looks at me as if I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. It matters." Yeah, I guess, but is he looking at Rielle and every other woman the same way also? He is a politician. He makes everyone feel good. It was his job. No one wants to vote for someone who makes them feel like crap. "Hey, I know you hate me and I make you feel really awful, but I would love to have your vote." Yeah, doesn't work like that.
