Edwards Parties On

The New Republic takes a look at John Edwards' post-scandal life in North Carolina where he "tends to his legal problems and little else" but still manages to have a good time.

"In the aftermath of the 2008 presidential campaign, Edwards was said to be distraught. He lost a precipitous amount of weight, and advisers even told reporters at the time that they worried he might be suicidal. Since then, things have only gotten worse. But Edwards is refusing to follow in the tradition of other scandal-plagued figures like Tiger Woods and Eliot Spitzer, who initially kept low profiles after they were publicly humiliated."

The piece has stories of Edwards letting loose at a prom-themed dance party for Duke public policy students, his affinity for white wine, and the implosion of his marriage while on a celebrity volunteer delegation to Haiti.
