It was only 8 years ago that John Edwards was close to becoming Vice President of the United States, and only 4 years ago that he had a chance at actually becoming President!
Times sure have changed.
John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter might both be called to the witness stand today, delivering explosive back-to-back testimony and concluding nearly a month of court proceedings that have laid bare the steamy details of their affair and the trail of money used to cover it up.
Edwards is on trial for allegedly using nearly $1 million in donations to hide Hunter and later their baby daughter during his quest for the 2008 presidential nomination. If convicted, he could be sentenced to 30 years in prison.
