What Will John Edwards Do?

Plead Guilty.

Yeah, no long analysis or "wait till the end of the post" type stuff. He's broken, his life a tragic tale of lies and deceit. No reason to put all of that in a courtroom. He'll lose his law license, which will be the last in a series of losses for him, but he won't fight this.

Those we're happier times above. Me and John Edwards. Me thinking he was an all-American guy (even though someone I respect told me he wasn't). Me remembering his cell phone ringing and him saying it was Elizabeth. Maybe it was.

Lots of lessons.
