John Edwards - John Edwards Trial Delayed Because Of Heart Condition

One-time U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards is suffering from a life-threatening heart condition.
The disgraced politician, who is facing a criminal corruption trial, was forced to delay proceedings last month (Dec11) due to a medical condition and now a federal judge has revealed that Edwards is seriously ill.
U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles has confirmed she has received letters from cardiologists to verify the politician's condition.
The trial has been delayed until the end of March (12) to allow Edwards, 58, to undergo an unspecified procedure next month (Feb12).
He has pleaded not guilty to charges of illegally using campaign contributions to cover up an affair.
Edwards was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 and 2008. He was also the Democratic nominee for Vice President in 2004, when Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts ran for president.
