Wild, Bold and Stupid?

By Steven Taylor @ 6:33 am

I heard this last night prior to the President’s speech: A Presidential Contender Rules Out a Senate Race, i.e., that John Edwards is not going to seek re-election to the US Senate. I was surprised by the move, which can be said to be both bold and stupid. Bold, in that it was decisive (although one could also argue that it was an attempt to get press coverage, as there has been little attention paid to Edwards’ campaign to date). Stupid in that his odds of winning the nomination are slim, and he is likely to find himself out of a political job soon. Plus, he may have increased the odds that the Republicans will win his Senate seat in ‘04.

Of course, if the goal was in any way publicity, it was a rather lame attempt-given that the letter was issued on Sunday, during the NFL’s kick-off weekend just prior to the President’s speech.

If it was in any way done to generate buzz, then given the timing, I think we can see why his campaign isn’t doing so well…

  1. Edwards is so desperate to generate buzz he may announce that he is not campaigning to be the new Prime Minister of Palestine.

  2. My guess is that he’s decided its a lost cause and wants to go back to private practice, reinvent himself and come back to politics in 2012. It’s time some of the dems start dropping out anyway.

  3. In fact, when they first started to make the announcement last night, I assumed that it was going to be a withdrawal from the pres race.

  4. He’s feeling pressure that Wesley Clark will enter the race and divide the “Best Hair in Dixie” demographic.
