Edwards Still In The Game

My Way News

In the run-up to the 2004 primary, I came to believe that Edwards was the most sincere of the candidates, and had the closest platform to my own preferences and philosophy. He didn't get a fair shake from the press (who did?!) last time. I think his biggest problem was that people didn't know him, followed closely by the notion that he was too young and inexperienced. At the time I was wishing he was the one running for the top spot instead of number two.

This time around, he'd have to beat Hillary for the nomination, something not expected of anybody at this point. Maybe his message and socially progressive stance would provide a certain balance to Hillary's more moderate position. He plays to the liberal base much better, I would think, though he's still quite the dark horse so far, especially with Feingold kicking up some serious dust lately. We'll see.
