Re: Edwards

I don’t see the appeal of Edwards, who seems really green to me, but something Jeff Greenfield said on CNN tonight made me wonder if what’s best about Edwards doesn’t really come through on TV news. Greenfield talked about how great Edwards is on the stump, which is why (says Greenfield) he’s done so well in Iowa, despite having poor organization there. Said Greenfield, “This guy makes a speech that’s a coherent argument, not a collection of sound bites.” He added that there’s a reason Edwards, who has spent most of his career convincing juries to vote for his clients, got rich at that.
