If nothing else has become clear in American politics this week, at least we now know that John Edwards likes to look good.And if looking good costs ,250 (airfare included, natch), then so be it.
That wouldn’t be out of the question, as Edwards recently e-mailed supporters asking for handouts in order to reach a goal of $9 million raised for the quarter, a big step below the $14 million he was able to raise in the first quarter.
He’s in third place among Democratic candidates but well behind front-runners Hillary Clinton ($27 million) and Barack Obama ($32 million) for earning in the last three months.
It’s precisely these kinds of challenging moments that lead to a public relations emergency.
