Is Edwards the Daddy?

Say what you will about them, the Enquirer has been right about this affair so far:

In denying he fathered Rielle's baby, Edwards told ABC that he would "be happy" to take a paternity test to prove he's telling the truth. (He has refused numerous previous requests by The ENQUIRER to take a paternity test.)

Edwards claimed he ended the affair in 2006, but sources say he restarted the illicit romance after confessing to his wife.

Rielle soon became pregnant after the affair was rekindled, say sources.

The ongoing ENQUIRER investigation has also confirmed that he has been with Rielle and the baby three times this year in California.

We will have to wait for Edward's blue dress evidence, but what interests me isn't the actual paternity. I wonder how Edwards could put himself in the position to father a child with this woman when it's well documented that children born in single parent households face a much greater risk of poverty. Remember the two Americas, John? Most often the division is between single parent and two parent families. Yet you weren't concerned with a child being born into an at-risk situation?

And you were the guy who was going to fix the two Americas?
