Re: Edwards


Byron, I know Edwards has been working hard and that people think he’s a born pol who’s making very smart moves. But he may be the most synthetic politician we’ve ever seen — an idea of a candidate and not a candidate in himself. Which is to say, he’s the “only a Southerner can win” guy who tries to rough up his honey-molasses voice with a little social progressive vinegar. To say there’s no there there would insult there.
