The Perils of Talkng-Regular
The New Repubic highlights the attraction of Sen. John Edwards, the skill of his campaign, and the potential places where he may fall apart. The mantra of "Regular People" may be lame, it may be full of hole and then it may be the winning slogan of a candidate. Is it any poorer than all the winning campaign slogans? Come on. No child left behind? Building the bridge to the 21st century? The New Deal?
All in all, I don't mind having the pols in frenzied debate about what a regular person and what one wants.
Do note Edwards phrase "Regular People" is predicted to become the debate of the primary and possibly the campaign. This isn't bad for an unknown face in the early days of a campaign.
