Rosie O’Donnell To Play Elizabeth Edwards?

I grew up in a liberal town in the very un-liberal state of North Carolina. In 1998, when John Edwards busted on the scene and took down Republican stalwart Lauch Faircloth, Edwards instantly became a local hero.

Will John Edwards Admit That He’s A Baby Daddy?

Maybe I should start reading the National Enquirer more often. They may have been right about John Edwards being the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby. Last August, Edwards confessed that he’d had an affair with Hunter, his campaign videographer, and went on to divulge way too much information on ABC’s “Nightline” about their trysts. But…

Music: An Election Day Mixtape

Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined.
