I want Edwards to the the Veep sooooo badly, I am practically breathless waiting for the announcement, which is supposed to be in about an hour.
Although you'd be a great choice too, Sherry!!!

Edwards was my "after Dean, before Kerry" pick for the Presidential nod. I'm happy he got "the call"--go Kerry/Edwards '04!

I am so happy!!!!!!! Kerry made the absolute best choice possible. Edwards will be a fine VP.

I want to volunteer for this campaign...I signed up on Kerry's website last weekend, and I'll have to follow up on this.

It WILL be a great fall, with new U2 and hopefully...my typing fingers to God's eyes...a new president!!!

I knew it would be Edwards. Maybe Kerry will get some charisma by osmosis..

It's funny that the NY Post put on the front page that it was Gephardt.

I do think that this was very smart of Kerry. Both regionally, politically, and in terms of rhetoric style, they compliment each other very well, with Edwards having what Kerry lacks and vice versa. I definitely think that Edwards is the best choice for VP, at this stage in America. It is all about timing, after all.

And now the Bush attack ads start:

Now they're saying that Kerry's first choice for VP was John McCain (Was that even conclusive, or was that just a media rumor? You definitely cannot expect the media to be truthful, sadly...), thus implying that anyone but the first choice is defective. Who's running the "negative campaign" now? It should be noted that John McCain wrote a very positive biographical note on the back of Edwards' book. Go look it up.

Be prepared: this is going to be the message that the Bush Administration drills for the next few days, and I think it to be a weak one. I'm disappointed that, in spite of McCain's self-styled "maverick" label that he's still stumping for a president who brought out his own highly negative campaign to defeat McCain in the primaries in 2000. The fact that McCain is still stumping for Bush merely reconfirms my saying: the only good Republican is a defeated one. I certainly didn't expect McCain to stump for Kerry or to say negative things about Bush. After all, he is a Republican; but for him to actively be working for Bush's reelection is nothing short of hypocrisy. I do think less of McCain for this, and he was one of the few Republicans I thought of relatively high.
