John Edwards| a closer look

john Edwards

John Edwards, familiar to most Americans as John Kerry’s Democratic vice presidential candidate in 2004, is making a second bid for the White House.

Edwards spent most of his life outside the political arena working as trial attorney, once securing a North Carolina record-breaking $25 million personal injury judgment.

The death of his own son, Wade, 16, in a car accident, propelled Edwards into public life, and he ran and won a Senate seat in 1998.

Serving only one term, Edwards left the Senate to run for president in 2004, losing to his eventual running mate. He tries again in 2008, once again, in a crowded Democratic field.
