    There is a write-up on EWE in Hug magazine, page 52. The Summer 2014 issue

    Edwards isn't going to win the election. But he may bring enough democrats out to vote to get Mary Landrieu re-elected.

    Wouldn't it be something if Edwards actually won?

    They are running for different offices. The idea is that Edwards will help get the democratic vote out to the polls in a mid-term election that is expecting a low turnout. If it works, then Landrieu will owe him a favor. That is how the Silver Fox works. He peddles influence.

    EE never ran a race to lose...his first object is winning and rubbing his detractors' noses in it. That he brings more Ds to the booth is a side benefit on which you are correct he will use as well.
