John Edwards Breaks His Silence

Former Democratic presidential nominee John Edwards "will break almost three months of public silence when he speaks at 7 p.m. today" at the Indiana University Auditorium. Edwards will deliver a speech, give his reaction to the election, and answer students' questions. "The Union Boards' decision to bring Edwards to speak -- which cost $35,000 -- has garnered criticism on whether it is appropriate to pay someone to speak who recently admitted his extramarital affair." (HT: On Politics)

Update: The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Edwards will also be debating Karl Rove at a "mortgage bankers convention" hosted by the Commercial Financial Association. The Chronicle notes Edwards was once a consultant for the New York hedge fund Fortress Investment Group.
