  •  This could be entertaining (6+ / 0-)

    First, his campaign slogan:  "It takes a crook to beat a crook."  All kinds of potential "It Takes A Thief" replays here.

    If this is a bright red part of Louisiana, having his 14th trophy wife in tow is probably an advantage.  ("At least I didn't ask her to put me in diapers!"  Or at least, not as a fetish prop, he's old enough to have a legitimate reason...)

    And Edwards is just gonzo enough to try this.  He's a kind of corrupt politician we don't see enough of any more.  Perhaps another slogan could be, "Edwin Edwards.  What Louisiana once was."  

    •  As they say in England... (0+ / 0-)

      he's a lovable scoundrel.

      You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.
