If anyone wanted whiplash today, they should have watched the John Edwards story.
First thing in the morning Edwards issued a statement confirming what had previously been gossiped but not proven: he was in fact the father of Rielle Hunter’s 2-year-old daughter.
(No need to count backwards, she was an Edwards campaign videographer during his bid for the Democratic nomination for the White House).
After dropping that bombshell (so that everyone could now nod their heads and turn to each other and say “I knew it all along”), where would you have expected Edwards to turn up next?
He landed in Haiti as the Humanitarian Edwards.
One of our reporters in Haiti (Adam Entous) ran into Edwards at the Port-au-Prince airport. The freshly confessed former senator arrived on a chartered flight with a group of volunteer doctors and actor Sean Penn.
