Edwards Running as the "Un-Hillary"

Political Wire commentary:

The Evans-Novak Political Report argues that John Edwards "remains important" in the presidential race "despite overwhelming media attention to Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. After losing an early lead in Iowa, Edwards has shown he still commands loyalty in that critical state with a new poll showing him in the lead (29 percent) followed by Obama (24 percent) and Clinton (16 percent)."

"The standard argument for Edwards over the other Democrats is that other candidates have shown warts that could foretell weaknesses in months to come, whereas Edwards has already been exposed to a tough presidential campaign. He brought little to Kerry's 2004 campaign, but his weaknesses are well known. Unpleasant surprises are far more likely with Obama, and although Clinton has been subjected to much public scrutiny, she has never had to run a truly competitive race for office. Edwards defeated incumbent Sen. Lauch Faircloth (R-N.C.) in conservative North Carolina."

To me, Edwards is the "white bread" candidate. Bland but also inoffensive. Seems to me that this country is in a big mess right now and we need a BOLD candidate and while I don't like Hillary very much, at least if she were president, we'd get some action on important issues.

civil behavior:

Why is no one looking or talking about Chris Dodd? He's a most experienced, honest, mature individual and his platform is well thought out and thorough.

Check into his website and see what I mean.

We could launch him from the grassroots and wouldn't it be refreshing to bounce the money out of politics?
