...that I spent quite a bit of time with him and his missus when he was SECDEF. He can be a CHARMING son of a bitch. VERY personable, VERY empathetic, VERY open and CHEERFUL. No shit! Funny, too.

However, the whole time I interacted with the two of them, she bitched at him constantly, and he did a kind of passive-aggressive snarling under his breath at her. Without going into too much detail, she was not real happy at being where they were, and he was. I don't think they were having marital problems, she was just pissed, and he was impatient.

If the TWO of them went up against Edwards, and they had that same dynamic going on, Edwards would win. I'll tell ya, it was like the Bickerson's without the comedy lines (although he had a few funny ones when she left the room!).

Anyway (rambling on), do NOT "misunderestimate" that evil son of a bitch. I think JE can handle him, but it ain't gonna be as easy as the last fiasco with Kerry vs. Nitwit. JE will have to be well rested, in check, and on his game. I'm cautiously confident that he will be. Dickie, at his best, will have a tough time winning the Congeniality Prize against JE, but sometimes contrast (he's usually Dr. Doom) is enough to carry someone over the hump. His weakness is Halliburton, but JE's is the standard "trial lawyers" saw.
