Edwards Speech

It’s a good speech. What’s more, Joe Trippi’s desperate spin is actually sort of convincing:

“It’s really a repudiation…of the Clinton campaign,” Trippi just said on MSNBC, interpreting tonight’s results.“Clinton doesn’t have a lot to talk about,” Trippi continued, adding that the vote tonight showed that voters “don’t want the status quo that the Clinton campaign represents.”


Playing it straight, second place is second place and John Edwards is now the populist alternative to front-runner Barack Obama.
