Edwards is an "ambulance chaser" lawyer, and how he made his millions. Worthless, IMHO. He has no soul, no nothing. He goes the way the latest poll questions go.
Not to mention, why would a Democrat use as a prop to start a campaign New Orleans, a city rife with corruption (see Willie Wonka Nagain, Congressman "Freezer" Jefferson, and GOV Blanco) and failed Democrat policies? Answer: exploitation.
