    John Edwards' mug shot released By: CNN Political Unit (CNN)–Former U.S. Senator John Edwards, pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and campaign law violations in early June.

A grand jury has been investigating whether money given to support Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, by benefactors of Edwards should have been considered campaign donations, a contention Edwards' team has disputed. A plea deal between the two-time...

Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee who's campaigning to be at the top of the ticket in 2008, is calling for a cap on greenhouse gas, world leadership on reversing climate change -- including offering to share new clean energy technology with developing nations, meeting the demand for more electricity through efficiency rather than production and creating a new energy economy by investing at least $10 billion in support...

It was listed in the events calendar to be shown Oct. 27-31 to residents of the sprawling condominium complex, who pay 75 cents to see films. It was canceled abruptly last week by clubhouse management. A notice was posted in the clubhouse without any explanation. Instead, residents will be shown The Stepford Wives.

    In the first debate between President Bush and Senator Kerry, Kerry said again and again that Americans are suffering 90 percent of the casualties in Iraq, and that American taxpayers are paying 90 percent of the costs. In the vice-presidential debates, Sen. John Edwards said the same thing. It would be a tremendously effective line in proving Kerry's point that we "pushed our allies aside" and went to war unthinking and unprepared. It would be a tremendously effective line if it were true, that is. But like so much else in the Democrats' relentless attack on the war, it...

    Kerry's campaign has invented a new "misery index" that makes Bush's economic record look, well, miserable. Why a new index? Perhaps because the classic "misery index" -- which adds together the unemployment rate and the rate of inflation -- currently is better than it's been in most years since World War II. In fact, it's less than half the miserable level reached in 1980, the last year of the Carter administration, and better than in any of Clinton's first four years: Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    "Former vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman says, 'I disagree with Senator Kerry's look back' at his earlier views on Iraq. Lieberman says he doesn't quibble with Kerry's call for a multilateral approach but suggests that there isn't that much original in the pitch. 'I don't find much difference between what he is proposing and what President Bush is doing.'"

    ORLANDO - Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry and running mate John Edwards burst back into battleground Florida on Tuesday, ending a weeks-long hurricane-imposed campaign moratorium with a rowdy late night rally in a packed sports arena. The trip marked Kerry's first campaign swing in the state since a string of hurricanes all but slammed the lid on presidential politicking in the largest of the still-up-for-grabs states, and the campaign's relief was palpable. ''We are so proud and so happy to be back in Florida,'' Edwards said as he took to the stage to introduce Kerry before the crowd of about...
