Edwards '08: The Silky Pony Rides Again...

I think the vice president and his wife love their daughter. I think they love her very much. And you can't have anything but respect for the fact that they're willing to talk about the fact that they have a gay daughter, the fact that they embrace her. It's a wonderful thing. And there are millions of parents like that who love their children, who want their children to be happy. —John Edwards, Vice Presidential debate (2003)

John Edwards was an odd enough choice as a Veep nominee (IMO anyway)...he's a one term Senator (where he voted in favor of the war in Iraq) and a trial lawyer before that. But now we hear (because of a glitch in his website) there will be a second run at being the Democratic nominee for President. How has one term in the Senate prepared him to run a country? He hasn't even run a company, city or State (mind you, the same complaint is true of Obama).

Now we get to go through another two years of hearing how his father "worked at a mill" --what does that mean anyway? Is that politico-speak for 'I was poor and understand you less fortunate folk'? Didn't the fact that he failed to carry a single state during the primaries last time around show him those folks weren't buying it? And why plan to announce his run in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans...? The multi-millionaire has so much in common and so much history with the people there?

Something about Breck Boy has always rubbed me the wrong way...he comes off like a shady defense attorney or something... Or that he's rich as hell and tried to play off that he's 'like us'...

We bloggers are going to have it easy this time around. We won't even have to look to dig up any dirt, we can just sit back and watch --and let Hillary and her team do all the leg work...
