For no other reason than you can't make this stuff up:
May 1, 2007, in Seattle, presidential candidate John Edwards appears at labor rally as part of AFL-CIO's "Working Families Vote 2008" campaign. Also speaks to meeting of trial lawyers: "It's great when you've been out in the wars to come back home to your family," he told fellow attorneys, adding: "The most important thing we need in the next president of the United States is honesty and integrity..."
May 10, Edwards daughter Cate, 25, tells magazine that her mother's recent cancer reoccurrence hasn't slowed Elizabeth Edwards' desire to campaign for her husband. Cate says her parents "made the decision that those two things must be simultaneously possible -- to continue the campaign and to parent young children."
May 15, in Iowa, John Edwards announces formation of "Women For Edwards," a group of women supporters from around the U.S. aligned with his goals for family planning and abortion rights. "We need to ensure fairness and equality for all women," he says, "and work to lift up working mothers."
May 27, on or about that date apparently in California, John Edwards allegedly conceives a love child with former campaign video specialist Reille Hunter; a baby girl is born Feb. 27 this year in Santa Barbara.
June 7, in New York, John Edwards is honored with the Father of the Year award by the Father's Day/Mother's Day Council. The “best parent” in his family, he says, is actually wife Elizabeth, who is in the audience.
June 26, in Seattle, Elizabeth Edwards says she backs gay marriage. Gay, not necessarily happy, marriage.
