It's a girl!

Former Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards admits in a written statement to NBC that he is the father of a 2-year-old daughter by Rielle Hunter, who worked as a campaign videographer.

In his statement, Edwards acknowledges the affair and tells NBC News that he is taking responsibility for the child . . .

Edwards also issued the statement to The Associated Press and The Raleigh News & Observer. In a phone interview with the Raleigh newspaper, Hickman says there are "very complicated set of reasons" why he earlier lied about fathering the child. "His heart wanted to do this for a long time," Hickman tells the paper. "For head-related reasons, it was not possible."

In case you forgot, it was Edwards' presidential campaign that spread updated rumors about Bill Clinton.

In that Rielle's baby daddy John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth Edwards lied about both the affair and the child to the American public for the past two years, can we all agree that neither of them is trustworthy enough to hold a position in public life?
