Edwards Daughter Leaves Courtroom

Testimony in the John Edwards trial yesterday included the story -- first told in Game Change -- of Elizabeth Edwards becoming "understandably upset" at her husband in an airport parking lot over his extramarital affair, the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

Mrs. Edwards, "who had been through extensive treatments for breast cancer, took off her bra, exposed her chest and stormed out in front of her husband and said: 'You don't see me any more.'"

Cate Edwards, "who has sat stoically through her father's trial, became visibly upset during a break in Reynolds' testimony. Her father leaned over and mentioned to her during the break when the jury was out of the room that he did not know what was coming next."

Cate Edwards said something inaudible to her father, then left the courtroom in tears as her father quietly called after her, "Cate, Cate."
