  1. Good for her. If nothing else, to get her share of the marital estate and will it to her children. Instead of leving it all to John to leave it to his mistress and her child.

  2. I don’t know how I would have managed to get through the day without this vital information.

  3. Yeah, I am ready for separation. A lot of separation.

  4. in other news, water is wet and the sun rises in the east.

  5. How two such psychotic and obviously codependent people successfully live apart?

  6. Hey, does this mean Edwards is running again?

  7. I hate to sound so cynical – but boo freaking hoo. Get the hell off the stage, you two overweening narcissists.

  8. Daley…Did you mean to ask “How CAN two such…”?

    The answer obviously is:
    Money – lot’s of it!
    She’s going to have quite a lot, he will have to do with substantially less than he has now.

  11. i read this line in an article on the subject:

    > A friend says Elizabeth Edwards has separated from her husband, two-time presidential candidate John Edwards.

    i had to read it twice, because the first time, i thought it called John a “two-timing presidential candidate.”

    And if i had to guess, it might have something to do with this: http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2010/01/26/book-report-the-politician-by-andrew-young/

    money quote:

    > [young] said he paid for much of Hunter’s expenses out of his pocket, and Edwards promised reimbursement when they found wealthy campaign donors or when Elizabeth died and he no longer had to cover up such costs. “I’ll take care of you, Andrew,” he quotes Edwards as saying. “You know I’m good for it.”

    What a bastard.

  12. I wonder if JE has much money left.
    You can bet his house lost a lot of value in the last few years.

  13. I guess his carbon footprint is going to increase since he’ll have multiple households to support.

  14. Let’s be clear about the money angle – The Breck Girl will still be quite wealthy, no matter the monies lost after his divorce settlement. He made many millions prior to his political career as an ambulance – chasing attorney.

  15. #6, daleyrocks, scuttlebutt is that Obama actually has Edwards on his list of possibles to replace Biden in 2012.

    If true, he’s just tone-deaf enough to do it. “Let me be clear, the time for stone-throwing is over…”

    Good one, Huey.

  19. like Barney Fife is going to be a serious candidate in ’12.

  20. I don’t think Edwards is the type to keep his zipper up and have serious doubts that Hunter was the first bimbo eruption in that marriage. Look for Edwards to start hanging around with Bent Dick Bill Clinton, who knows how to get him some strange.

  21. A.W. @ 2:20 pm, my favorite quote from the link reveals Edwards as a consistently self-centered vain and petty little man who was obviously disingenuous. I’m still stunned so many people actually fell for his oily schtick.

    Made in USA: Young says Edwards is an Atkins-dieter who hated making appearances at state fairs where “fat rednecks try to shove food down my face. I know I’m the people’s senator, but do I have to hang out with them?” Before a SEIU candidate forum in Las Vegas, Young says Edwards made him cut out a “made in the USA” label from Young’s own suit to sew in place of Edwards’s “made in Italy” label.

  22. The most surprising thing about this is a story I read last year that Kerry thought he was a creep and tried to avoid him. What a great VP choice !

    Mike K (2cf494)

  23. Boy, you must have problems when John Kerry (who by the way served in Vietnam) thinks you’re creepy.

  24. Wow! – I never saw that coming!

  25. With all due respect, ropelight, crack kills!
    The percent chance that Bambi will run with Edwards in ’12 is ZERO. Despite being who he is, Biden isn’t doing the President any more harm than Teh One does to himself.

  26. Now he will be free to hang with his initial consigliere, Bill Clinton. Pv$$yhunt, anyone?

  27. Edwards is an Atkins-dieter who hated making appearances at state fairs where “fat rednecks try to shove food down my face.

    So he was faking those anniversary dates at Wendy’s too.
