The Pretty Boy, John Edwards (who gave the Two America's speech) is building a modest 28,200 square foot compound in North Carolina

Does this mean the US economy is now good Johnny?

Edwards Home County's Largest
The 28,200-square-foot home also Orange County's most valuable

By Don Carrington
January 26, 2007


RALEIGH — Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county.

“The Edwardses’ residential property will likely have the highest tax value in the county,” Orange County Tax Assessor John Smith told Carolina Journal. He estimated that the tax value will exceed $6 million when the facility is completed.

The rambling structure sits in the middle of a 102-acre estate on Old Greensboro Road west of Chapel Hill. The heavily wooded site and winding driveway ensure that the home is not visible from the road. “No Trespassing” signs discourage passersby from venturing past the gate.

Don Knight, Orange County building plans examiner, told CJ that, including the recreational building, the EdwardsesÂ’ home would be one of the largest in Orange County.

Knight approved the building plans that showed the Edwards home totaling 28,200 square feet of connected space. The main house is 10,400 square feet and has two garages. The recreation building, a red, barn-like building containing 15,600 square feet, is connected to the house by a closed-in and roofed structure of varying widths and elevations that totals 2,200 square feet.

The main house is all on one level except for a 600-square-foot bedroom and bath area above the guest garage.

The recreation building contains a basketball court, a squash court, two stages, a bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, swimming pool, a four-story tower, and a room designated “John’s Lounge.”

Edwards was the Democratic candidate for vice president in 2004 and a former N.C. senator.

Thursday afternoon, the Edwards for President press office was unable to provide information on any additional buildings planned for the estate.

Don Carrington is executive editor of Carolina Journal.

Since the Democrats are all for higher taxes I'm sure he's just finding ways he can pay the government more money through property taxes ;).

Personally I'm happy for him. Through his education he's amassed a fortune, good for him. I just wish he'd stop trying to give away other's money while spouting platitudes about being 'everyman.'

Stick to being a racist piece of trash. Lying doesn't become you.

He lied through his teeth (nothing new for the Breck Boy) to the juries and made his money off lies and fraud

He is the a perfect example of the modern Dem party

So I see Jilly is still her old jolly self. All the warmth and charm of a scorpion

Edwards used lies and distorations to win his court caes. He put alot of good Dr's out of business while lining his own pockets. ZTo show how much he cared about his clients he only took what, 40% of what he stole?

What a nice guy

Put up or shut up. Or go back to playing Dungeons and Dragons instead of trying to talk to the grown-ups.

Why not do something that will cheer you up Jilly. Spit on an Iraq vet at a peace rally. Or burn a US flag. Or stick pins in your George Bush doll

Go back doing what you do best

Please both of you, stop the personal stuff. Ignor or walk away.

There's nothing I can say to this, except "Yes, they would."

Here is a comprehensive list of Attorney Edwards' "victories" on FindLaw:

http://news.findlaw.com/newsmakers/john.edwards.html

He's a pioneer of the second-guess-the-ob-gyn suits that are now acknowledged by even skeptics to have resulted in THOUSANDS of unnecessary c-section births. It's now agreed that cerebral palsy isn't caused by birth injuries. But never mind all that. Sue away, make a fortune based on lies, slick talk, blow-dried hair.

I could really care less about how much money Edwards has or the square footage of his house. Hell, I plan on having at lease 50 times the money he's got, so who am I to say anything?

What I do care about is that he's a ornery bastard that chases ambulances and would go spelunking in a blue whale's ass if there was a guaranteed dollar at the other end.
