Actually, I think most of us are working on stories. But I’ll do my best to keep this real estate from going too long without being turned.

I’m fascinated by Edwards’ decision to turn down the Nevada/Fox News debate, and will be watching closely to see if it winds up helping or hurting him. Some think that it was an honorable move but that it may mean that Fox will hound him into third-tier status — something that the netroots (who love the gesture) can’t really do much about. Of course, Fox News has it in for all non-HRC Dem candidates anyway, so how much worse could it get? Also, Edwards might benefit from this extra-long primary season; there are debates almost once a month from April on through February: How much damage can missing one (on a network Democratic primary voters are unlikely to watch) do?
