John Edwards, charged with six counts of violating campaign law, was found not guilty on one count today; the judge declared a mistrial on the other five counts, as the jury could not come to a unanimous verdict on any of them. So does this mean there will be another trial? An AP source says probably not:
WASHINGTON — A knowledgeable law enforcement official said Thursday it is unlikely that the Justice Department will retry John Edwards.
The official made the comment after the campaign finance fraud case ended in a mistrial.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity about an issue that will undergo much review inside the government in the coming days.
The case was so murky that it’s not all that surprising that the jury ended up deadlocked (the only count they agreed to acquit on involved payments made in part after he’d withdrawn from the race). Recall that the editors of National Review came “unethusiastically to his defense.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
