Read this: A close-up look at John Edwards

Or he taps his left ring finger against the table — though there’s no ring on it anymore.”

— Our colleague Manuel Roig-Franzia takes a long hard look at John Edwards during his trial in North Carolina on campaign finance violations. Noted: “No one clears a path for Edwards anymore.”
