11. I'll say the same about Edwards that I did about Webb
before I started working for his campaign. I may not agree with him on all the issues, but he has a chance to win. We need someone who has a chance to beat the Republican candidate in a few southern states, perhaps Virginia and Missouri. Look how great Webb turned out. I would imagine he might have the same response on gay marriage and for the same reason.

On the other hand, Edwards is for gay civil unions, and I don't think you would find many of the major candidates who would go further than that.
