I am so glad he didn’t pick Gephardt! One of the defining moments of the Gore campaign is the really bad decision he made in picking Joe Lieberman. It weas one of many really bad decisions Gore made that led to him failing to become president. So I was worried that Kerry might make a similar mistake.
Edwards is a good choice because – among other things – he has the folksy demeanor that people like in Bush. Kerry is somewhat stiff and arrogant as compared to Edwards so he fills in some gaps and will be able to help take the south. So far – today is a good day.
