37. I didn't get why Edwards was running. We see things differently, I guess. Have you...
been reading the "why I'm voting for Obama" posts? They said it all.

Have you been watching his speeches on TV or in person? They say a lot.

Have you read his website? That has information, too.

You know why he's running. You know why millions are voting for him. You don't like it, is all there is to it. Or maybe I should explanation in the world will suffice for you, if you don't see it now, because you are convinced that Hillary is the one.

He probably would not be running, or not winning, if he hadn't been against the Iraq War from the start, and if Hillary had not voted FOR it, at the start.

That's a good start. And from there, it gets better.
