Edwards Parties On
The New Republic takes a look at John Edwards’ post-scandal life in North Carolina where he “tends to his legal problems and little else” but still manages to have a good time.

“In the aftermath of the 2008 presidential campaign, Edwards was said to be distraught. He lost a precipitous amount of weight, and advisers even told reporters at the time that they worried he might be suicidal. Since then, things have only gotten worse. But Edwards is refusing to follow in the tradition of other scandal-plagued figures like Tiger Woods and Eliot Spitzer, who initially kept low profiles after they were publicly humiliated.”

The piece has stories of Edwards letting loose at a prom-themed dance party for Duke public policy students, his affinity for white wine, and the implosion of his marriage while on a celebrity volunteer delegation to Haiti.

Wide Open Race for Ohio Senate
A new Quinnipiac poll in Ohio finds Lee Fisher (D) and Rob Portman (R) lcoked in a tight race for U.S. Senate with Fisher holding a narrow lead, 42% to 40%, and 17% still undecided.

Said pollster Peter Brown: “The Senate race remains far, far from any kind of clear picture, mostly because neither candidate is well known to Ohioans. Even though Fisher has been a figure in Ohio politics for two decades, 54% of voters say they don’t know enough about him to form an opinion. For Portman, 66% can’t rate him. With four months until Election Day the Senate race is wide, wide open.”
