John Edwards Out of Running for V.P.?

I have to admit to finding this National Enquirer story most interesting, as it seems to have solid dates and times -- though not, at least as yet, a photo. Byron York of National Review notes the report "seems extremely strong."

So what was John Edwards doing wandering the halls of the Beverly Hilton at 2:40 a.m. this morning, without a colleague, a suitcase, or a briefcase in sight?

What makes it especially curious is the Enquirer is owned by one of Bill Clinton's best buddies, Ron Burkle. Who would be interested in sabotaging Edwards' V.P. prospects, and is some political hardball being played? Are there any more shoes to drop between now and the convention?

Roger Simon has thoughts on the story, which he indicates has been an open secret for some time. There seems to be plenty of arrogance and narcissism to go around in the Democratic Party these days.

This blog has links and background info.

For Mrs. Edwards' sake, I hope the story isn't true. She's got enough to deal with.

Laura, I hope that Mrs. Edwards didn't find out about it this way. Hopefully, if its true, John Edwards manned up and confessed to her himself - in the privacy of their own home.

What a shame.

Only surprise to me is that he let himself get caught...he's always seemed so smarmy (is that a word?) to me anyway.
