SO HIS ANSWER IS, "YES":

With Talk of Edwards Love Child, Mud Fight Begins (NICHOLAS WAPSHOTT, December 20, 2007, NY Sun)

CBS anchor Katie Couric has been asking presidential hopefuls whether voters should trust an adulterer. The way they answered, their directness or lack of it, their body language, and the coy looks on their faces proved a psychologist's dream. [...]

[Y]esterday, despite denials, the National Enquirer suggested a friend of John Edwards was pregnant with his child.

So Ms. Kouric's questions last night came right on cue. Some answered with a laugh, others with a shrug, some with compassion, others with piety. [...]

Mr. Edwards gave little sign that he was in the hot seat. "It's fundamental to how you judge people and human character, whether you keep your word, whether you keep what is your ultimate word, which is that you love your spouse, and you'll stay with them."

"...you love your spouse, and you'll stay with them."

Weasel Edwards' non-answer. You love your spouse(who is as ambitious as Hillary for the presidency), and you'll stay with them (eventhough you are an adulterer like Bill.)

We've trusted adulterers before

The whole thing seems like something that the Edward's Campaign itself put out to fool people into thinking their candidate is masculine.

If his own wife and the mother of his children can't trust him, why should we? The man is pure slime.
