Poll question: Why did Edwards lose?
Let's hear it, tell us why you didn't vote for Edwards.

Poll result (6 votes)
Was it his cynical votes for the IWR and patriot act? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it because he hadn't even finished his first term in the senate? (2 votes, 33%)Vote
If you are a woman, were you sick of hearing the idiotic assertion that your fellow females would all vote for him because he was so good looking? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it because you knew all his money and early support came from wealthy lawyers? (1 votes, 17%)Vote
Was it the Tiger Beat Contingent (see #3).........swoon (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it because you were sure it was time to try someone beside a southern moderate? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it his support for NCLB which has disproportionally punished poor schools? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it because his kids screaming distracted you during campaign appearances? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Was it because his theme "two americas" sounded good but did not lead to clear solutions for real problems? (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Other? (3 votes, 50%)Vote

1. Edwards didn't lose or cause loss
A VP candidate can only hurt if he's a bad choice, but can't help that much if he's good.

I liked a lot of what he said, and his Southern credentials probably helped.
