The fact that presidential wanna-be John Edwards had unprotected intercourse with his mistress (bonus points for doing that while his wife was in an immunodepressed state!) and, according to his former aide Andrew Young, was unaware that pregnancy might be a possible outcome, indicates that his grasp on reality is, at best, tenuous:
Young describes Edwards as "barely under control" the first time the two men discussed Hunter's pregnancy.
Edwards called Hunter a "crazy slut" and questioned who fathered the baby. He asked Young to help talk her into an abortion, but she wanted the baby.
