John Edwards Is Sick, Allegedly

A judge has delayed John Edwards's criminal corruption trial until at least March 26 because Edwards has a heart condition. It's not clear what the condition is, and for those of you inclined to believe that it's just a ploy so Edwards can buy time, the AP is reporting that "Edwards walked into the courtroom in Greensboro without assistance and appeared healthy." The less skeptical may be gratified to know that Edwards's doctor says the problem will require surgery very soon.
