Former Sen. John Edwards talks about what went right and what went wrong with his campaign for president, his plan to cut poverty in half by 2018, and whether — if asked — he would accept the Democratic Party's nomination for vice president.

Edwards is currently the national chairman of "Half in Ten: From Poverty to Prosperity," a new campaign that aims to cut poverty by 50 percent over the next ten years.
