The Flagship continues its vision quest, the drive to make John Edwards into the O.J. Simpson of the 21st Century, except without the gaudy rushing stats or goofy Hertz commercials. Fox News is already running with the story now on the Enquirer cover for one day that Edwards is about to be indicted by a grand jury.
Do you think Fox would be so fast to repeat this if the target of this story was a Republican? Nope, me neither.
Of course, even if it pans out, an indictment and actual jail time are two different things. Just ask Tom DeLay. Or Scooter Libby, for that matter.
