Edwards, Part Two

A friend emails to say that folks in New Hampshire, who know Kerry well because of their exposure to Boston media, are not going to give him the kind of bounce one would expect after his impressive Iowa victory (and kudos to Michael Whouley on that). He predicts an Edwards surge after the Kerry mini-bump, on the Kausian theory that enthusiasm for Kerry is inversely related to proximity. The closer you are, the less enthusiastic you are about him.

It does appear, judging from this morning's reports, that Edwards has decided to campaign hard in New Hampshire.
