77. I disagree with your assessment.
It's been Edwards' character that's been attacked the most by the GOP, a case in point, Ann Coulter. That's what gets the base energized more than anything else IMO. Character, not issues. Look how they attacked Kerry; they demeaned his heroism & patriotism, while pushing the votes for idiot bush with the message, "the one you could enjoy a beer with."

I don't think Edwards can have it both ways on this issue. The base gets energized with fear and hate, and if Edwards manages to get his numbers up, he'll feel the full fury of their attack.
