Campaign notes

---On Saturday in the debate and in his many speeches in the last few days, a stock line for John Edwards has been "I've never taken any money, any money, from a Washington lobbyist or special interest PAC". For a man whose largest contributor by far is the trial bar, some of whose leading lights are under indictment for good reason, this appears to be just transparently "clever" and self serving litigator semantics.
---In the last two days Bill Clinton has been given or has assumed the role as attack dog on Obama. He claims virtual sainthood for himself and his wife, while attacking Obama for rewriting his record on Iraq and spreading false comments about Hillary, and chastising the press for not critically examining Obama's candidacy. This is beyond unattractive.
