Back Roads to the White House: Edwards comes back to defend his Iowa turf

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

Former Sen. John Edwards might be leading most Democratic polls in
Iowa, but you wouldn't know it from all the biggest headlines over the
past couple of weeks. Since the 4th of July holiday week, the Iowa
limelight has been dominated by the two national front-runners: Sens.
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. Clinton and Obama practically
chased each other around the state that week, wandered off for a few
days, then returned this week to give dueling speeches at almost the
same time, just a few blocks apart in Des Moines. The Clinton-Obama
rivalry is all anybody has been talking about. But what about Edwards?
Remember him? He still leads the polls here. Right? Edwards slipped
into northwest Iowa on Thursday night for a forum inside a jam-packed
public library in Fort Dodge… It was less than 100 yards from where
singer Paul Simon performed a concert last week for his pal, Sen.
Chris Dodd.
