The sex tape made by John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter may yet play a significant role in Edwards' trial as the judge cleared the way today for testimony surrounding the steamy video that was made as Edwards was preparing to run for president.
Lawyers involved in the trial are at least sparing the jury of actually watching the video. Testimony regarding the tape will likely focus on whether it was used as blackmail, who knew about it, etc.
And by the way, look at Edwards' oily mugshot. There's no way this tape is "steamy."
