Edwards admits affair, but says he didn't father child

John Edwards made the admission in an interview to be aired tonight on "Nightline" and later in a statement. He said that he isn't the child's father and is willing "to take any test necessary" to prove that. The political ramifications of the admission, which comes after months of denial, were uncertain, but it is likely to end Edwards' ability to campaign vigorously for Barack Obama.
