Rielle Hunter played the whole John Edwards thing perfectly, remaining silent and weathering the wrath of Elizabeth and years of lies from Edwards, aide Andrew Young, and the rest of the Edwards camp.

That she had no idea how much money — now the subject of a grand jury inquiry — was being funneled to her from top campaign donors.
