If Dan Quayle had done this...

...it would be the lead story in all the usual suspects:
John Edwards showed up in Cleveland the other day, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports he made a pitch for the drug-dealer vote:

The Rev. Kyle Earley of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church, for instance, asked Edwards how his campaign is trying to reach the "corner vote," a term for drug dealers and jobless teens who loiter on street corners.

Edwards said that while the campaign has "a group of people whose job is to reach out to those folks, it doesn't know your community like you know your community, and I'd be the first person to say that."

Thanks to the Wall Street Journal Opinion Journal for pointing this out.
