56. And yet despite all that..
And I will look for a link I can't remember where I read or heard it, I saw that if the demographics of votes were extrapolated to the entire country, just based on demographic population distribution in the entire country, he would have won a nationwide election with the vote splitting the same way.

As I said I can't remember where I saw this, but I will post a link if I can find it.

I think that Edwards was more concerned with spreading his message than he was with any supposed bigots voting for him because he was the white male. First of all, I would venture to say that most of the bigots who would vote that way are members of another party, not the Dems, and therefore the risk of that in the Democratic primary is very small, IMHO.

As I've been saying since it happened, something about this just smells funny. The reasons have been discussed in numerous posts, I'm not going to take the time to retype them. But I can't shake the strong feeling that this was not his choice.
