John Edwards now lives in a third America

John Edward just can't stop making money. The millionaire trial lawyer is so blessed with monetary good fortune even his love of poor people leads him to 55,000 dollar a pop speeches on poverty to public universities.

But this latest twist is too much. Last week Odyssey Marine Exploration found 500,000 silver coins and other artifacts -- one of the largest maritime recoveries in modern history -- inside a 17th-century Spanish galleon, sunk in an undisclosed Atlantic Ocean location.

And who will benefit from this 500 million dollar booty . . ?

John fricken' Edwards!

Actually the Edwards' campaign has to yet disclose (what a surprise) how much Edwards is due, but the presidential candidate is listed as a senior advisor and a major investor in Fortress Investments, the New York-based firm which owns at least 10 percent of Odyssey Marine Exploration.

Maybe it's time Edwards introduces a third America: The America where financial luck never stops smiling on the already rich to the tune of lottery wins, inheritance from long-lost relatives and even the rare multi-million dollar shipwreck find.
