Must be a jury full of those people who always select undecided when asked questions that require common sense. I knew edwards was a self-serving democRat bag of manure within 60 seconds of hearing him. The question is, where have the all the edwards supporters gone? Perhaps they've moved "forward" to a much higher level of pathetic stupidity namely the lord marshal b. h. obama.

It's hard to come to a verdict when you're making 12 bucks a day and get free chicken for lunch. Turn off the A/C and feed them Arby's for a day and you'll have your verdict.

When is this absurd partisan witch-hunt going to END? I know reTHUGlicans have no shame when it comes to smearing Dem political candidates and tort lawyers, but jesus...isn't it OBVIOUS by now that Edwards is guilty of nothing but poor judgement in his personal life?

END it...acquit him...let's move on. What a farce!

The partisan reTHUGLican prosecutor is NOT confused, except maybe that his plot against Edwards has not played out the way he wanted.

Still working on that proof that the jury is "Democrat" [sic], I assume?:)

You actually defend this guy because he is a Democrat? A scumbag who cheated on his wife, while she battled cancer. A guy who would not owe up to his responsibility of fatherhood for his mistress' and his child just because he is a Democrat.

Being a scumbag is not a crime. If it were, guys like Newt Gingrich would have been behind bars years ago.

Oh, I forget. Being a scumbag is okay for a Republican.
It's the Dems who need to mind their manners. Chuckle

Argument wasn't about whether he behaved well, idiot, but whether he BROKE THE LAW.

He didn't, and the jury basically agreed. Tough beans, huh?

ps - hope you talk about Gingrich the same way...;)
