On another non-political message board I go to talking Kerry...
Lots of people chiming in about a Kerry/Edwards or Edwards/Kerry ticket being unstoppable and something they could really get behind. Largely apolitical younger folks in their 20's so it was interesting. Some lean a little towards the right but are not republicans. So it was interesting to read this from them.

My wife was a heavy duty Dean supporter who has resided herself to a Kerry nomination, which she will support. But she says she'd be incredibly enthusiastic about a Kerry/Edwards ticket. She was bummed when she heard Edwards said he ruled it out.

I've always been strictly ABB and changed who I like day to day based on any number of factors. But it's interesting to hear people's thoughts from outside this message board as we get closer to something even remotely resembling the election.

1. I'm truly happy if Edwards really ruled it out.

Maybe it's time for a person of color or a woman. We could make it time, if we wanted.

PS: Barring affirmative action, a Senator from the NE should be balanced with a non-Washington type from another part of the country.

PPS: Edwards fits only one of those criteria.

2. Sen. Edwards HAS to say no to the question now.
First off, the question is premature and "journalists" need to quit asking it. They know that a "yes" answer is tantamount to quitting the primary process. We need Sen. Edwards in the race so of course he isn't going to say he wants the second job while he is to secure the first. That said, if after the primaries are completed and a nominee is chosen would he continue to say he won't be VP? I doubt it and hope he will reconsider. I think he would go for it and that would be all to the good.

Woof
