John Edwards: Dan Quayle without the experience

Okay, so John Edwards with a hangover is about ten times smoother than Dan Quayle on his best day. But it's worth noting that before he started putting his foot in his mouth, the knock on Quayle was that he wasn't experienced enough to step into the presidency if needed. Well, Quayle represented Indiana in the Senate from 1981 to January 1989, and he previously had served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

That's six more years in the federal government than Edwards.
Hugh Hewitt summarizes John Edwards' legislative career: "He spent four years in the Senate positioning himself to run for president and two years running."
