John Edwards is a smart guy. He's also ambitious. And he's young enough to put together a second act. POLITICO lined up a lot of experts to interview on how Edwards could "redeem" himself.

He is someone we should watch in approaching our own continual transformations in a professional marketplace with so much uncertainty. In a sense, Edwards is a gift to us over-50 who struggle with finding our place in a world we never anticipated being in.
