More on Edwards

The leftish online magazine Slate's William Saletan waxes enthusiastic about the Edwards selection, and Andrew Sullivan, who like Saletan was enthusiastic about Edwards during the primaries, also applauds the Edwards-as-veep nod. Martin Grace, on the other hand, points us to a column this winter by Stephen Bainbridge, which explores how John Edwards' complaints about "lost jobs" rings hollow given his efforts to derail tort reform.

For a more comprehensive and scathing look at Edwards, see the American Tort Reform Association's, which includes interesting tidbits like the number of Edwards campaign jets supplied by plaintiffs' lawyers (4) and the percentage of his initial Senate campaign financed with trial lawyer cash (86).
