Alex and I are here at the VFW Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire for what’s billed as John Edwards 100th Town Hall Meeting. In other words, we’re here to see if Edwards is really the all-out, all-time master of the universe when it comes to working a crowd with his homespun, personal touch, stump-speech speaking style. You know, mixing his personal story with policy chat. So far the one thing I can see is that at an Edwards event everyone is pretty like Edwards. Maybe it’s all the Lands End, L.L. Bean clothes?
Late Update: Some people misunderstood this post. It seems pretty clear to me. But lest there be any confusion, ‘pretty like Edwards’ means ‘attractive like Edwards’, not that they look a lot like Edwards.
