Edwards' fall: From golden boy to sleazy tabloid tale

(CNN) – John Edwards was once a political golden boy - successful senator from the South, telegenic, rich trial lawyer, but a spokesman for the poor, elected to the U.S. Senate in his first run for public office.

2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry picked him as his running mate, calling Edwards "a man who understands and defends the values of America."

    Yes, quite the poster child for the Democrat party! Truth is, when you look closely at most of them, beyond all the smoke and mirrors and lies and distortions, they all are John Edwards clones. Lie through their teeth and ripping you off.
