12. I agree - and that is why I said it. Not to mention, as is the case for most creepy people, he is

totally unlikable. The key may be whether, in person, people will find some sympathy for Edwards. He certainly has lost nearly everything - his wife, his reputation, his health, his political future. He looks like he has aged decades since 2004.

Not meaning to equate them, but I wonder if the fact that - at least to the his side and the media - Chuck Colson was able to have a second act that did give him back a good reputation. (Though I think the truth test of contrition would have been that if given an opportunity to make up for something you say are sorry for, you would not just take it, but welcome it. Colson did not meet that test - suggesting that he would still have done the dirty tricks for political gain - maybe just staying within the law. I guess he helped some with his prison ministry. )
