17. Another article on the same subject

As for me, I use to not like Edwards, but now can take him okay. I still don't know how much I trust him, but that is just me. He looked good with Obama on stage, but there was still something uncomfortable about it. It's up to Obama who he picks.

Up thread, someone is pushing Wesley Clark for VP, and I have nothing against him either. Edwards could bring to the ticket a better chance at those "white hard working Americans" that Clinton talked about. You know, the ones that would never vote for Barack. (wink, wink) Clark would bring to the ticket the national security experience that everyone (media and republicans) is quick to point out that Barack does not have. Either one of them would be okay with me, as well as some of the others that have been mentioned. Time will tell, and as long as it drives the republican crazy, I don't care if Barack waits a while before he names his vp.

Question though, speaking of repubs..how many of you still suspect that LIEberMAN will be mccain's vp? It seems they are everywhere together and mccain speak of "lieberman and me" as if they are a couple. It just seems too much like they are covertly now running as a pair at times.
