Oprah's Interview With John and Elizabeth Edwards

Oprah Asks John Edwards About Marriage After Adultery

I love watching a cheater squirm. Even better when it's a politician, Oprah's instigating it, and his wife is right there. That's pretty much how it went on Oprah today when she interviewed Elizabeth Edwards about her new book, Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities, which includes life adversities like dealing with an adulterous husband.

Before leaving, Oprah asked John — on camera — if she could talk to him. How could he refuse! He took her into his mansion's full-court basketball court saying, "I played Barack in here." (Nice try!), but she got right down to business: "What did you think when you finished the book?" "What did you say?" "Would you prefer she hadn't done it?" "Were you afraid she'd leave you?" See what he awkwardly has to say for himself.
