John Edwards, Rielle Hunter Love Child Photo

John Edwards is a former lawyer and Democratic U.S. Senator from the great state of North Carolina. He was the Democratic Vice President nominee in 2004, when he and John Kerry lost to George W. Bush.

Edwards was competing with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the nomination in 2008, but struggled from the start and couldn't get much traction. Rumors of an affair with Rielle Hunter also hurt John Edwards. He dropped out in late January 2008.

What a handsome man, though. No one will ever take that away from John Edwards. His populist, pro-labor message will also resonate.
