John Edwards may be a reprehensible person and a lousy human being, but the government has a weak case against him. (2:49)

SAD.

YOU KNOW, WE FORGET SOMETIMES...

I CERTAINLY DO-- THAT THESE

PEOPLE ARE HUMAN.

AND THAT'S THE LESSON THAT IS

GOING TO STAY WITH ME.

UNTIL I TURN BACK TO THE

CAMERA OVER THERE AND DO A

LITTLE BIT ON THE JOHN EDWARDS'

STORY.

ALL RIGHT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

ANYMORE.

IT'S KILLING ME.

SO REMEMBER THIS GUY?

HE LOST THE PRESIDENCY.

HE LOST THE VICE PRESIDENCY.

HE WENT ON TELEVISION, LIED

ABOUT HAVING AN AFFAIR, AND HE

WENT ON TELEVISION AND

ADMITTED THE AFFAIR BUT LIED

ABOUT HAVING A BABY WITH THE

AFFAIR.

YOU KNOW, IT SEEMED LIKE JOHN

EDWARDS HAD IT ALL.

THAT DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT.

CAN WE SCROLL THE PROMPTER.

AH!

THANK YOU.

IT SEEMED LIKE JOHN EDWARDS

COULDN'T SINK ANY LOWER.

THANK YOU.

MY FAULT.

WELL, GUESS WHAT.

>> AN ARREST WARRANT WAS

ISSUED TODAY FOR FORMER

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOHN

EDWARDS AFTER HIS INDICTMENT

ON CRIMINAL CHARGES.

HEAD OF HAIR JUST STOLE MY

HEART.

SO WHAT HAPPENED?

AFTERTHOUGHT.

NOW YOU'RE JUST BEING

SARCASTIC.

EDWARDS IS BEING ACCUSED OF

ILLEGALLY USING NEARLY A

MILLION DOLLARS IN CAMPAIGN

FUNDS TO KEEP HIS MISS STRESS

OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE.

IT TURNS OUT GOVERNMENT HAS A

PRETTY WEAK CASE AGAINST HIM

AND HE HAS SURPRISING ALLIES

SUPPORTING THAT NOTION.

>> EVEN SOME WHO FIND EDWARDS'

BEHAVIOR DESPICABLE QUESTION

THE STRENGTH OF THIS CASE.

>> I THINK HE'S A

REPREHENSIBLE PERSON BUT NOT

EVERY SCUM OR LIAR IS A

CRIMINAL.

>> I THINK JOHN EDWARDS IS A

LOUSY HUMAN BEING BUT I THINK

THIS IS A REALLY LOUSY AND

FLIMSY CRIMINAL CASE.

>> Jon: THANKS FOR THE

SUPPORT.

NO, NO, NO, LET ME CONTINUE.

I BELIEVE IN YOUR INNOCENCE

BUT YOU ARE, IF I MAY, A PIECE

OF (BEEP) TOOK A (BEEP) AND

THEN THAT (BEEP) THREW UP.

AND THAT THROW-UP THEN TOOK A

(BEEP), THAT IS YOU.

ALTHOUGH YOU ARE PERFECTLY
