[At a campaign event in 2002 John Edwards] was introduced as a man who had been named the sexiest politician by People. He tore off his suit jacket and put on a fake-satin jacket... Speaking without notes, in a pronounced Southern accent, he started out by picking up on the People designation. The other night, he said, he woke up with his one-year-old son, Jack. 'I'm wipin' my son Jack's butt and changin' his diaper,' Edwards said, 'and my wife comes up to me and leans over and whispers in my ear' -- a broad sarcastic stage whisper -- '"You don't look too sexy right now!"' He grinned."
