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

PointOfLaw contributor Ted Frank on 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."
