"I am Quinn's father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves,” Edwards, a former senator from North Carolina and John Kerry's 2004 running mate, said in the written statement. “It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me.”Edwards always cared more about his own appearance and the possibility of being president.
The admission provides a sensational coda to one of the most lurid sideshows of the 2008 presidential campaign — the disclosure by the National Enquirer that Edwards had an affair while his wife, Elizabeth, battled cancer.
Edwards consultant Harrison Hickman describes the former senator's relationship with his daughter in on-camera interview: “He talks about her being a beautiful child and a happy child. … Like any father, he talks about how it makes him feel when he’s around Quinn, which is very happy. … I think he’s very proud of this child."
To that end, it looks like Edwards has surfaced in Haiti of all places. It's all part of rehabilitating his image. Sorry, but I don't buy it. He's using the Haiti relief efforts to rehabilitate his image; the suffering of the Haitian people is merely a prop.
