Stats on biography?
I just finished reading about about American foreign policy and the motivations of nearly every major politician were discussed in terms of their biographical experiences.

I admist this is allegorical, but just look at your own experiences. I can't think of a politician for whom biography isn't important.

Also, I think Edwards will be leading, and will beat Bush largely because of biography (and becuase his meshes so well with his policies). The problem for Edwards right now is that media treats him like the plague and most people don't know his biography and his policies. When they learn them, I'm pretty sure he'll surpass politicians whose biography isn't known and whose policies don't clearly mesh with the perception of their character (or mesh in a bad way, like, their biography is Wall St, and their policies help big businesses' profits).
