He also choked up when talking about the daughter he had with mistress Rielle Hunter. He called Frances Quinn Hunter precious "whom I love, more than any of you can ever imagine and I am so close to and so, so grateful for. I am grateful for all of my children."

Q: WHAT'S NEXT FOR EDWARDS?

A: After the trial, Edwards said: "I don't think God's through with me. I really believe he thinks there's still some good things I can do." He alluded to his goal to help poor kids in the U.S. and around the world.

Q: WHAT WERE SOME OF THE MOST DRAMATIC MOMENTS IN THE TRIAL?

A: During emotional testimony that saw Edwards' 30-year-old daughter flee the courtroom in tears, former campaign advisor Christina Reynolds recounted an October 2007 fight at a Raleigh airport where an enraged Elizabeth Edwards confronted her husband about his affair, ripping open her shirt and baring her chest.

Former aide Andrew Young testified that when Edwards learned Hunter was pregnant, his first reaction was to express doubt he was the father and call his mistress a "crazy slut."

Young also described his climactic last meeting with Edwards in August 2008 on a secluded road near the former senator's Chapel Hill mansion. Young said Edwards was nervous and acting so paranoid the aide feared his boss had hired men to shoot him.
