The Edwards campaign called. They are in a tizzy over a quote from my article, which is being sensationalized at this moment on Drudge: “Elizabeth Edwards on campaign’s troubles: ‘We can’t make John black, we can’t make him a woman’…”
The campaign staff didn’t even know I had spoken to Elizabeth Edwards [clarification: some staffers knew because I told them after the fact, but I didn’t go thru official channels to reach her]. That is how she rolls. The staffer wanted to know when I talked to her, and what she said. CNN just asked me the same thing.

UPDATE: More on Elizabeth Edwards from Marc Ambinder.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Advertising Age isn’t impressed: “This comment from Elizabeth Edwards might cut through the clutter, but perhaps in ways not expected.”
