Jim, we have only begun to mine the dirt-rich lode that is the Edwards-Rielle saga. It's fraught with political significance. Howard Wolfson asserts that, had it not been for the cover-up of the affair, Hillary would have won Iowa and went on to win the nomination:

"Our voters and Edwards' voters were the same people," Wolfson said the Clinton polls showed. "They were older, pro-union. Not all, but maybe two-thirds of them would have been for us and we would have barely beaten Obama."

A friend of Hunter's says Edwards is still lying, and former Edwards campaign chairman Rep. David Bonior is furious:

"People put their heart and soul into the John Edwards campaign for President of the United States," said Bonior. "They put their energy, they put their time, the put their resources in, they gave them their confidence and in the end, he wasn't there for them."
Don't tell me this scandal is over. It's not over until we say it's over. Enquiring minds want to know!
