How do you save your campaign when you’re in third place in the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination?
Well, if you’re gazillionaire John Edwards and don’t want to spend the money you soaked from doctors, you have your wife bait Ann Coulter.
It certainly does the trick, as the Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire reports:
EDWARDS AND MCCAIN BATTLE to stay in 2008 top tier.
Lagging far behind Obama and Clinton financially, Edwards reaps pick-me-up from jousting with Ann Coulter: $450,000 from 2,300 donors within 24 hours.
That’s what the Elizabeth Edwards-manufactured feud with Coulter was all about. Period.
Not that I think Ann minds much. She presumably got to sell more of her latest book, now out in paperback, which is why she was making the media rounds, this week.
