John Edwards Returns To Public Stage In Indiana

Two-time presidential candidate John Edwards is returning to the public stage for a speech, three months after he acknowledged an affair with a woman hired to produce videos of him in 2006.

Edwards is scheduled speak Tuesday night about the election at Indiana University. The school said the public lecture will also include a question-and-answer session.

The former North Carolina senator has largely stayed in exile since admitting in August that he had an affair two years ago. He canceled a series of events before the election, saying he didn't want to be a distraction to former rival, Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

Edwards' wife, Elizabeth, has held several events in the past two months advocating for health care reform.

    This adulterous fool needs to crawl back under the rock where he's been hiding for the past few months. Loser.

    John Edwards probably cost John Kerry the last election. I know I would not vote for him in any fight. Hopefully Obama and any political figure recognizes his liabilities. The wife cheating is merely another character flaw, one of many.

    His name is Anthony Acevedo he was one of 350 U.S. soldiers held at Berga am Elster, a satellite camp of the Nazis' notorious Buchenwald concentration camp in WW2. The soldiers, worked 12-hour days, were used by the German army to dig tunnels and hide equipment in the final weeks of the war. Less than half of the soldiers survived their captivity and a subsequent death march, he says. Acevedo shows few emotions as pain, the horror witnessed by a 20-year-old US Army Medic at that time. "We were liberated on, April 23, 1945," By the US Army. That is all he says.

    Funny, there is no posting site for witn for Veterans day. I think that in the future, they should put a site to blog and dedicate to veterans. So, with that being said US Army Vet thanks for your and your families service to the US. And to my favorite soldier, my dad. He served 27 years in the Airforce as a pilot. He was in 3 wars, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. You may have met him on the way to where you were going. He flew C-47s, 123s and C130s. You know him because he received the Air Medal 7 times for risking his life. You may know him as the guy that picked you up in Vietnam when you were in harms way. He was "that guy" that flew his plane while shots were fired at him as the main target on the plane. He was one of the men from Pope Airforce Base who had more hours in the C130. And when he flew home, he brought back the bodies of the fallen. He was saddened they had fallen and showed them respect as a fellow soldier. See you some day dad, we miss you.

    Forget about Edwards .Remember Veterans on Nov 11th. Remember WW1 ended on 11th Month on The 11th Day on the 11th hour The guns stop, and the killing ended, and over 40 Million people died in WW1. I met a WW1 vet back in the 1970's He told me. There is nobody who hates war more then the men who have to fight it. He got Mustard Gased in WW1 by the Germans. From Pres Wilson " War To End All Wars " WW1.? God Bless the US Army. His name was Angus my WW1 vet friend. He has gone to heaven now. I just had to write his name. Remember all those who never came home. You know what our freedom cost? American Blood. God Bless America, God Bless those who Served. My Father Thomas was in the Army Air Corp in WW2 My Uncle Bill was in the Navy in WW2. My Wifes Uncle Joshep was KIA by the Germans in Italy in WW2. Tell your vet story if you have one please.

    This guy should realize by now that he is washed up. You are accountable for your actions in public yet he thinks he can continue. Stick a fork in it, hes done.

    I have to agree with you Carolyn. However there are many men and women that run around on their spouses. The only thing is they aren't in the spotlight and media so they never get caught. That doesn't make it right but it is reality. As far as John Edwards though yes I want to vomit when I see him because there is nothing more pathetic than a person that can't be faithful to their spouse.

    Who in the world wants to see John Edwards. There is nothing he can say to make me want to see his face or hear his voice. How sorry a man can he be to run around with a sorry woman when he has a wonderful wife at home (fighting cancer alone.)?
