115. Those were some dumb Republicans!
Since we have open primaries in Missouri. LOL I'm glad top have them on board with us, however. It seems that Edwards was picking up a pretty big constituency here. Forget putting Gep on the ticket to won Missouri. To be honest, I think it's entirely possible that Edwards could help in Missouri. I hated the idea for a long time, and still se some draw backs, but compared to other possibilities, I see it as having pretty good potential.
As for Clark, no no and HELL NO! One military guy is enough. The military is a mind set and way of thinking. The presidential candidate has been in the thick of it. I don't want a VP who lived it and loved it longer.
Gep would be a slap in the face to the women after our march. He has stood side by side with Bush not just in the Rose Garden. He has been a Partner in crime as they have been chipping away at our reproductive freedoms.
