To say that Edwards is the most electable is misleading. Democratic candidates lose ground whenever the corporate media attacks them with negative, often false, attacks. The reason that Edwards has not been attacked viciously is that he does not look like the imminent Democratic nominee. In life, things change according to the circumstances, and some people don't understand this. In pre-primary months, The right-wing media machine has to focus on all Democratic candidates, instead of one.
Even so, Edwards has been hurt by overhyped reports about his haircuts and other trivial matters.
