Dodd, Like Edwards, Raises the Electability Issue

Look out, John Edwards — Chris Dodd has a new ad.

Alright, Dodd is probably the least of Edwards’ concerns at this point. But the ad, which takes place in a barber shop, purposefully draws comparisons to John Edwards’ $400 hair-styling fiasco – as noted here and here.

It also functions as a sort of unflattering homage to Edwards in another way, by making the argument — as Edwards has consistently tried to do — that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama aren’t all that electable.

"And if he got nominated we’d have a Democratic who could win," says one of the barbers, before Dodd walks into the barbershop and an Opie look-alike jumps out of his chair.
