John Edwards

FILE - In a  Thursday, May 31, 2012 file photo, former presidential candidate John Edwards speaks outside a federal courthouse as his daughter, Cate Edwards, left, and father Wallace Edwards, listen after his campaign finance fraud case ended in a mistrial, in Greensboro, N.C. Edwards survived his campaign corruption trial and immediately started talking about his future, saying he wants to become a better father to his four kids and help the poor again, particularly children. But with his image and reputation shattered because he impregnated his mistress while his wife was dying of breast cancer, will the public need time to forgive the good-looking, smooth-talking former presidential candidate? Could he become a television commentator? Is a book or movie deal in his future, or will he fade away to family life and low-profile charity work? (AP Photo/Chuck Burton, File)
