50. I've seen Edwards speak in person and he is excellent 'on the stump'
I understand that in the 'house party' realm he gets really positive responses. He does well one on one, as he did when arguing cases to the jury.

Edwards rarely uses any kind of notes or writings. He is excellent at retaining information, and rarely will you hear him misquote a fact.

Many of the venues that the Dem candidates are showcased in so far do not allow Edwards to display these qualities in the best light.

IF we ever get down to 3-4 candidates in a real debate of the same questions, Edwards would shine.
