Will Edwards's selection bring the Chamber of Commerce into the fray?



PointOfLaw contributor Ted Frank on overlawyered.com points to Alan Murray's column in today's Wall Street Journal, which quotes U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donahue as saying that Edwards's selection would cause the Chamber to abandon its traditional neutrality and work to defeat the Democratic ticket. Murray quotes one Fortune 100 CEO as calling Edwards "the one we fear the most."

Is this shaping up as "the people vs. the powerful" part II? If so, I hope that voters realize that the tort bar is itself the powerful, too...
