Edwards bounce?

Democrats are still orgasming over the Edwards pick, as if it were some kind of bold, ingenious move, as opposed to months-old conventional wisdom. While they're picking out what they're going to wear to the inaugural ball already, early polling suggests the "bounce" Kerry received from Edwards is fairly small by historical standards. Perhaps this is not surprising, since many people fully expected Edwards to be the nominee.

Edwards polls well, but it's the popularity of the flavor-of-the-day, unlikely to last. Kerry's decision to me seems shortsighted and poll-driven, style over substance. In the long run, Kerry would have been better served to write off the South, and go into the battleground of the Midwest with an experienced, native Midwesterner at this side.

Oh well.
