Let's Make a Deal!

I'm pleased to report that John Edwards has left the Oak Creek police (see previous post, "A Few Bugs Here and There" ) and has joined Fortress Investment Group as a "part-time global dealmaker."

Oddly enough, Edwards' experience is becoming commonplace, perhaps an emerging typical narrative arc for a lawyer-turned-politician. Even the hapless Dan Quayle can now call himself an investment banker as an advisor at Cerberus Global Investments (named for a three-headed dog that guards the gates of hell), a post he's held since he left the politics game in 2000.

I guess it beats pretending to practice law.
