Where oh where is Edwards?

Is it just me or has John Edwards been nearly invisible since the convention? He came out once, effectively, to attack Cheney, but that was it. I thought the whole purpose of picking Edwards was for his campaign skills.

Well, the only logic I see to hiding Edwards is to allow the post-convention spotlight to focus SOLELY on John Kerry. Amazing as it sounds, a significant chunk of Americans really knew nothing of Kerry, and as expected, the convention served as Kerry's Debutante ball and this post convention period provided his campaign a chance to seal the deal. It's actually not a bad strategy and I'm hoping that after the GOP monster mash, they'll finally let Edwards be Edwards, which is, a pretty-faced, sweet talking, populist.
