He was also a candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2004 and 2008. Edwards earned a law degree from the University of North Carolina in 1977. After his graduation, it took him twenty years to make a name for himself as a trial lawyer representing "the little guy" in lawsuits against large companies. It was in 1998, when he embarked on his first run for political office, ending with a win over incumbent Republican Lauch Faircloth. Once he became North Carolina's junior senator, Edwards went on to run for the Democratic party's presidential nomination in 2004, even though he was relative unknown nationally.
