Inside Politics: Rice on VP: ‘There is no way that I will do this’
Ms. Rice said: “I didn’t run for student council president. I don’t see myself in any way in elective office.”
Ms. Rice also said, “There is no way that I will do this because it’s really not me. I know my strengths and weaknesses.” She said Mr. Romney will pick a strong running mate and she’ll support the ticket.
Ms. Hunter told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday that she and Mr. Edwards were still a couple until late last week, as details from Ms. Hunter’s memoir became public. The breakup was painful, Ms. Hunter said, but Mr. Edwards will still be involved with their daughter, Quinn, who is 4 years old and lives with Ms. Hunter.
The book, “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me,” wasreleased Tuesday through a Dallas-based boutique publisher, BenBella Books. The Associated Press reported on the book last week.
In the book, Ms. Hunter describes intimate details about her affair with Mr. Edwards, whose campaign hired her as a videographer, and tells of his thoughts as federal prosecutors mounted a case against him on illegal campaign contribution charges.
Prosecutors had accused the Democratic politician of masterminding a scheme to use about $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy political donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
According to Ms. Hunter, Mr. Edwards told her he would probably wind up in a low-security prison in Virginia if he was convicted, and Ms. Hunter said she planned to move nearby with their daughter if that happened. A judge declared a mistrial last month, and federal prosecutors have opted not to retry Mr. Edwards.
Ms. Hunter’s memoir includes intimate details about her affair with Mr. Edwards as his wife, Elizabeth, was dying of cancer. On Tuesday, Ms. Hunter said she felt it was necessary to tell the truth about her relationship, even if doing so was painful for her, Mr. Edwards or his other children.
