John Edwards, the would-be presidential hopeful of yesteryear who cheated on his wife as she died from cancer, is in the headlines today. The talk of the day is a major John Edwards illness. And it is not an obvious moral illness, but what is being called a ‘life-threatening heart condition’.
This sudden heart condition was announced by a federal judge, as Edward’s lawyers scramble to delay a case in a criminal corrupting trial stemming from the accusation that Edwards used US taxpayer money to hide his affair.
Edwards surgeons are purportedly planning an emergency surgery over a month from now, showing that this is truly a matter of urgency.
