"'Hardball' not so hard for Edwards" (with video) ( UPDATED)

Update: It's very early and it's only a poll, but "Edwards Well Ahead In Iowa," from Chris Bowers.

Raleigh News and Observer (NC):
Likely Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards passed the world leader pop quiz Tuesday night.

He correctly identified the leaders of Canada, Mexico, Iraq, Germany, South Africa and Italy when quizzed by Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball" program.

In fact, Edwards seemed to have little trouble fielding questions, ranging from the war in Iraq to his relative lack of foreign policy experience to his political ties to organized labor, before a live UNC-Chapel Hill crowd and a national TV audience.

"This is not hardball, this is batting practice," Matthews complained to the audience during a commercial break. "This guy is killing me. He couldn't do this four years ago."

John Amato shares this video moment with us, revealing that it was not all sweetness and light. Is Chris taking his meds?
