Meanwhile, while John Edwards hides in Haiti

More news about former N.C. Sen. John Edwards' genetic link to pond scum:

A former aide to John Edwards says in a new book that the two-time presidential candidate told him he thought about leaving his wife but also cited his love for her as a reason to keep details of an affair hidden, according to a newspaper report Tuesday night.

The Wall Street Journal reported on its Web site that Andrew Young says Edwards asked him to go into hiding with Edwards' mistress, in part because of his wife's health.

Young wrote that Edwards concluded "that if I helped him, I would make Mrs. Edwards's dying days a bit easier. 'I know you're mad at her, Andrew, but I love her. I can't let her die knowing this.'"

Elizabeth Edwards has an incurable form of cancer that returned in 2007.

Young's tell-all book says Edwards asked him to help cover up the affair and promised to take care of him in the future. Edwards acknowledged for the first time last week that he fathered a child with Rielle Hunter.

The book, "The Politician," is not due out until Saturday, but the Journal said it purchased a copy Monday at a Washington-area book store.
