INTERESTING ANGLE: James Taranto writes:
Picking Edwards may also be an effort to keep would-be Ralph Nader voters in the Democratic fold. Edwards is a trial lawyer, Nader is the country’s leading champion of trial lawyers, and, as the Village Voice points out, Nader actually urged Kerry to pick Edwards. Meanwhile, Alan Murray reports in today’s Wall Street Journal that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce vowed to ‘abandon its traditional stance of neutrality in the presidential race and work feverishly to defeat the Democratic ticket’ if Edwards is on it.
Taranto’s got lots of other Edwards and Kerry links, incidentally.
