Here’s Alex’s old post on John Edward’s career as a trial attorney, read Alex here too. Here is Professor Bainbridge on Edwards on tort reform. Here is National Review discussing John Edwards on trade.
My take: None of these links warms my heart, but at this point we don’t have much real information. I suspect that Edwards, if President, would rather be perceived as successful than pursue a particular ideology. And he almost certainly is better on the issues than Gephardt.
