I know a lot is made of Edward's success as a trial lawyer, but it should be remembered lawyers get to pick their juries while politicians are selected by the electorate. And trial lawyers generally try to pick the dumbest, least informed juries possible.
I know that Edwards looked like the boy he is on camera, but even I (who disliked every idea coming from his immaculacy groomed head) had to admit that he deserves props on one thing: rhetorical style. The guy may be used to speaking to dumb people (^) but that hasnít stopped anyone from taking a nomination before. Watch out for him. He may be back to haunt us after he gets his butt whooped in a couple weeks.
