11. OK... Here goes nothing
I had to actually explain to a top Dem in my county this weekend at a pool party that:
A. Edwards was a personal injury attorney - not just any old trial lawyer.
B. That he was worth $44 million and is still running as a populist and,
C. That he had only been in office less than a full Senate term and had never served in any public capacity before that.

Now... if a Dem activist didn't know these things, do you think the regular folks do? Nope.
But, you'll be sure to hear them from the media and the Republicans soon enough.

Don't you get it? Edwards polls high because he's supposed to. It's a media edict.
