guiltyer verdict on the one count of the mistrial. this was not a vindication as much as a repudiation of the government at tremendous tax payer expense to bring the charges. many believe from the beginning it was a reach. the gifts of $1 million total from two wealthy donors to keep his love affair was never traced to campaign coffers and were never withdrawn from campaign accounts. that was in all likelihood a fundamental problem for the jurors. the defense pointed out it was not about his bad behavior it was about misuse of campaign funds. >> while i do not believe i did anything illegal or ever thought i was doing anything illegal, i did an awful, awful lot that was wrong. there is no one else responsible for my sins, none of the people
who came to court and testified are responsible, nobody working for the government is responsible. i am responsible. >> he spoke emotionally about trying to make good of his life now. he spoke lovingly of his parents and his children. >> finally my precious quinn who i love more than any of you could ever image. and i am so close to and so, so grateful for. so grateful for quinn. i am grateful for all my children including my son blaine who we lost years ago. >> fox has now confirmed from a law enforcement official that it is unlikely the just disdepartment will retry john edwards. >> bottom line the prosecution

house on two or three different occasions i was interviewed a couple times deposed by the prosecution attorneys in the case. i am just one person. there were lots of people on that list that were never called, and for this result. it was a tremendous waste i think of fbi and justice department resources to get this result. >> the charges being obscure ambiguous a novel approach by the prosecution was really in the jury selection in terms of the people may have evaluating in this case. >> time for your top 5:59 o'clock. the massive wildfire in new mexico is growing to 190,000 acres overnight. it is just a sign of what has happened in the west. the wind is a dangerous combination that will fuel the

get on with his life. >> ainsley, heather? >> this is nuts. didn't we all do that when we were kids. takes the sun ofun out of being school. >> chewing gum you would worry about. that leads us to the question of the day. suspended for 6 months the right punishment or excessive. shoot us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. we are going to have a spit ball contest. you can't decide between the kindle and the nook, which one is better? many of the tech questions clayton gets. he's here to answer it for us. >> here's the big question of the day, who's side is president clinton on? >> going into the office and basically perform essential
really. if you want a reading device to read in the sunlight i would say absolutely pick up a kindle. the environment amazon created it is strong you can get thousands and thousands of books. the books are relatively cheap of course. there are two different things. if you want to be able to surf the internet reading the internet on a kindle or nook it's a terrible experience. it's slow and clunky. on an ipad there's nothing you can't do on an ipad you can't do on an lap top. throw a kindle in the purse read a book in the bright sunlight. >> just to read get the kindle or the nook. >> for erg elverything else get ipad. >> you are looking at a couple hundred dollars but it's a completely different device. do you think apple is going to come out with an iphone 5 in the fall?
what will be different from the iphone 4 and 4 f. >> i get this question maybe twice, three times a day from viewers. every year you can count on a company releasing a new version of their device. if you are always waiting you are never going to buy a device. i think that apple is probably going to release the iphone 5 probably end of december maybe early part of october. it will probably have a larger display screen. it will be faster. so it will be on the next generation technology, you hear about lte. it means faster. you are going to see that a bigger screen. i think there will be a lot of new searing improvements there. interestingly to ask questions of your phone. a whole other look at maps. i think apple is working on -- they bought like three different mapping companies. the way we look at maps and gps is going to be completely different come the fall. >> maybe we have to push the arrow to you update gps. >> question number 3 what is the
next big thing in television now that we have hd an the tv's are so thin are they going to get to the point that they are flexible. billy wrote us and asked us this question. >> when i was at a convention i saw flexible displays. seeing interesting displays that are wavy that you can bend. >> might not need it in a television but a smart phone so you can drop them. in tv's i think in the next few weeks i think at the apple conference you are going to see something interesting in the television space. there will be a lot of internet connected tv's. the way we connect to netflix or cable without a cable box. thinner and lighter that you can drop on the floor and worry about breaking. >> over to you. >> glad we got confirmation that clayton carries a purse.
>> i carry a clutch. >> here we go again. these folks won the lottery but they are still collecting welfare. how is it to happen? who's side is he on in clinton offering up praise for mitt romney. you have to stick arounded for this. ho home defense max. with a new continuous spray wand. and a fast acting formula. so you can kill bugs inside, and keep bugs out. guaranteed. ortho home defense max.

come out in a couple hours. >> thank you so much in washington. perhaps president clinton did not get the memo from the obama campaign. president obama has been hitting mitt romney really hard for his time at bain capital. but president clun ton actually praising it? >> i don't think we ought to get in a position where we say this is bad work. this is good work. i think, however, the real issue ought to be what has governor romney advocated in the campaign that he will do as president? what has president obama done and what does he propose to do? how do things stack up against each other. that's the most relevant thing. no question they come into the office and basically perform the essential functions of the office. a man as governor and a successful business -- sterling
