Edwards decides he wants to win
Dan Balz of the Washington Post sees a tougher, more determined John Edwards emerging in Iowa. I don't know if this is desperation or inspiration, but it's welcome. I've been amazed at the lack of passion from candidates on all sides.
Here's a snippet of the "new" Edwards: The rich have an "iron-fisted grip" on democracy and won't let go through negotiations. "Anybody who suggests that we don't have an epic fight on our hands is living in Never-Never Land," he says.
The Never-Never Land reference aside, I think this kind of populism will work in the caucuses. Careful consideration only helps if you're banking on your name to get you a win. Still, I wonder how Edwards' passion will fare after New Hampshire?
