Spare the Child
Apparently neither John Edwards or Rielle Hunter have any shame. Apparently each is so selfish, narcissistic and arrogant that they do not consider the plight of their child. Money has changed hands. Recriminations, lies, preposterous dissembling are more important to these two than the fate of the little girl they conceived in their recklessness. If Edwards is as good a lawyer as his reputation says, he should be able to figure out how to bargain an end to the publicity and accept his fate. This child has her life ahead of her. The internet will store all the lurid details for her and others to read. It's too bad she will not read that she was conceived in love, that her parents stepped forward to work together to create a stable home for her, or that she brought joy into their lives. John Edwards might not be a criminal. The court will settle that. But he is a moral thug.
