Edwards: No Working-class Hero

Yesterday I blithely asserted that John Edwards' popularity among working class voters would give Obama an important new dose of credibility with that crowd. But CJR's Zachary Roth goes back over exit poll numbers to demonstrate that Edwards was never especially popular with them in the first place. Although the endorsement did have the desired effect of quickly changing the subject from West Virginia.
