Wow, John Edwards — does he still have it, or what? The former senator and VP nominee, indicted on felony charges of violating federal campaign finance law and facing possible jail time, showed up for his booking bright-eyed and well-coiffed, flashing his better-days smile, in photos released by the U.S. Marshals Wednesday. We haven’t seen a mug shot this suave since Paris Hilton’s, or maybe Tom DeLay’s. . .
