Actually, this is about what you would expect. John Edwards walks with no definitive conclusion. Based on what we’ve been reading about the jury’s conduct, I can’t help but wonder if they were capable of reaching a verdict on more than one count. I don’t know what was up, but I’ll guess we’re about to find out.
I’d feel better if they’d unanimously let him walk, because, as he said himself, God’s not done with Johnny Reid Edwards. I’m just glad Market and Eugene streets are about to clear out.
Update: Three Edwards jurors appeared on the Today show. Note they’re raising their hands when Matt Lauer asked if they thought Edwards was guilty on some of the counts; when Lauer asked if they thought Edwards was a bad person, no one raised their hands.
