No Public Events For John Edwards Until Election

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards says in a statement that he will not have any public events until after the November election.

A statement released Thursday by an agency that books speeches for Edwards says the former North Carolina senator doesn't want to create a distraction for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

The decision extends an exile for Edwards that began about a month ago after he admitted to an extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter, a rookie filmmaker hired to produce videos of him in 2006.

The head of the booking agency, Don Walker, says Elizabeth Edwards plans to make speeches in Philadelphia and New Jersey later this month.

    Guess he's too embarassing for the Democrats. Obama doesn't want him ruining any of his chances to get elected. Shame Obama didn't pick him for his running mate.

    Good! Maybe Elizabeth should put a GPS tracking device around his ankle.
