New York magazine has an excerpt from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime about the fall of the Edwards campaign.

For readers of Carolina Journal, some of this should sound familiar.

But Edwards?s new image was sullied by a trio of interrelated imbroglios that bubbled up in 2007, which his advisers dubbed ?the three H?s?: the house, the hedge fund, and the haircuts. The house referred to the new mansion, a two-building complex totaling 28,200 square feet, with an indoor basketball court, swimming pool, and squash court, two theatrical stages, and a room designated ?John?s Lounge.?

Heilemann and Halperin note that the mainstream media habitually ignored the fourth ‘H’, Edwards’s mistress Rielle Hunter.
