UPDATE 3:55 pm 8/8/2008: Edwards admits to affair, denies fathering child
UPDATE: Fox News is now hammering this point with their article (posted at 12:57 pm today) “Edwards’ Party Role Clouded by Allegations.”
If Edwards thought he could forever dodge the issue of mistress and love child, he obviously forgot about the convention, which starts on August 25th. He would normally be expected to speak…but he must first clear up the “confusion.”
Did he or didn’t he?
Though the televised media isn’t touching this matter (yet), the print media is beginning to ask. Here’s excerpt and link from The Dallas Morning News article today…
“He absolutely does have to [resolve it]. If it’s not true, he has to issue a stronger denial,” said Gary Pearce, the Democratic strategist who ran Mr. Edwards’ 1998 Senate race.
Mr. Edwards’ decision not to take questions about the allegations has allowed doubts to linger and political bloggers to speculate.
