Commentary: John Edwards finally confesses; big deal

After more than two years of spin, half-truths and outright lies, John Edwards came clean. He admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock, the result of a campaign-trail affair with Rielle Hunter, a videographer, while Elizabeth Edwards was back home battling cancer. Edwards has been in a free fall so long that it's hard to remember that just three years ago many people believed he had a decent chance of sitting in the White House today.
