Why the Edwards $200 haircut is bad for him. Even worse than the huge house.
Because an average American can understand the idea if you have a lot a money you get a big house, heck most Americans have that dream.
It's the idea that you have a lot of money so therefore you spend $200 for a mans haircut that is not part of anyones wealth dream. It just sort of reinforces the pretty boy image he has in some people's mind.
Also kind of hurts his 'Two Americas' thing because it is obvious which one he is in....
