Apparently some people care about the new house John Edwards just had build - 28,000 square feet on 102 acres. I kinda missed it, myself, focusing on real issues and all, but here's the Cliffs Notes version:
John Edwards had a big house built. Since he's a Democrat, ostentatious is supposed to be off limits.
Of course, if he was a Republican, he would have called it a church and wouldn't pay taxes on it.
