Sabato says Edwards vulnerable for ties to trial lawyers

This Bloomberg news article on Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards' failure to participate in the debate over asbestos litigation reform includes the following from U.Va. government professor Larry Sabato:

"Edwards 'is very, very vulnerable to a charge of being in hock to a powerful and wealthy group of individuals, the trial lawyers,' said Larry Sabato, a University of Virginia political scientist. The senator can't 'work against their interests, given the money they have given him' and if he 'works for them, then he opens himself up to even more criticism,' Sabato said."
