john edwards! all snotty "blue dog" comments aside, i can live with that. edwards is a good campaigner. he's attractive, as politicians go. he's southern. oh, and he's not dick cheney, always a big plus.
seriously though, i think this is the best option we had, certainly better than gephardt or vilsack, neither of whom is quite as engaging as...any other animate being.
in other news, bush's team plans to focus on, in the words of the nyt, "kerry's overtures to mccain," in response to the kerry-edwards announcement this morning. wankers.
