John Edwards Update
John Edwards, that spotless Southern gentleman, is a huge favorite among the anti-Hillary types in the Democratic party.
According to national polls and years of punditry, Hillary Rodham Clinton is the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.
Someone should tell the Democratic Party.
Its leaders and activists are trying to end her campaign before it begins in earnest. And many of them have settled on an alternative: North Carolina's John Edwards.
Can Edwards ride out the early storm of fierce campaigning and mud-slinging and leave Hillary to be trashed to death by anti-war Dems? Maybe not. The latest polls actually show Edwards losing ground in the '08 race. Meanwhile, Hillary continues to demolish all other Dem contenders - even al Gore - in every single poll. It may be seen as significant that Edwards is tied in the polls with John Kerry. Will the ex-running mates go down together?
