What About John?

A cute video from the Edwards campaign. It closes with a recent poll that shows Edwards within striking distance of Clinton and Obama in Nevada, which holds the next Democratic nomination contest this Saturday.

Well, if he's got Dueling Banjos, he's got my vote.

I for one am glad that the circular firing squad has ended over race/gender by our fine qualified Dem candidates.

sad that a white man is the most progressive of the remaining 3. and that he has the least change of securing the nomination because of podunk iowa & nh.

And, he's got a real purdy mouth, and would be happy to squeal like a pig on national television.

I actually really like Edwards' message about kicking all the lobbyist out of Washington. BUT what I don't enjoy is hearing about his dad and the mill over and over again.

I also don't like how he tries to spin individual donations Clinton and Obama have received as "corporate dollars". As anyone who has ever donated to a political campaign knows, you must disclose who you work for. That doesn't mean your company is lobbying or even organized to support a particular campaign.

So stuff it Edwards. Obama will get my vote.

Any of these three will make a better president than any of those GOPenises. Or is that just too faint of praise in terms of comparison? Obama/Edwards, Edwards/Obama, Clinton/Obama, etc etc.

It's kind of a sad "What about me?" video, but without elipses in place of the question mark. Not terribly inspiring, and the banjos don't help.

Edwards has been alone in condemning the excesses of corporate america. Is it really a surprise to anyone that corporate media would try to ignore him?
I think Fox is afraid of Edwards and rightfully so.

Just more evidence that the FOX News target market is delusional psychotics.
