Based on what I know about John Edwards and my track record so far in predicting the course of his case, I’m going to disagree with Aaron and say I think he’ll take a plea deal. Don’t get me wrong; Aaron has pegged Edwards’s ego exactly correctly…but even Edwards has limits.
Specifically, Edwards does what he has to do when he has no other possible choice. That’s why he confessed to the affair but not the baby initially. That’s why he eventually confessed to the baby. Absolutely no choice.
This seems like it’s going to turn into one of those moments.
