What nobody told you about Edwards. (Do not cast your vote in Iowa without first reading this)
Edited on Tue Jan-01-08 11:42 PM by antiimperialist
Edwards is the only candidate whose last name can be typed with only the left hand fingers. Try it. Place both hands on the keyboard keeping your fingers in place, and type:

edwards.

Now try Obama, or Clinton. Even Huckabee or Romney; Giuliani. Even Dodd who has only 4 letters requires two hands.
Kucinich. Gravel, McCain, Hunter.

Amazing, isn't it?

Now you can vote.

2. Strangely, that is no more silly than some of the pro/cons posted on DU lately.
Some of the stuff posted lately has been pretty amazing.

12. Actually, you type his first name with the right hand and his last name with the left,
so it seems to me that John Edwards is truly the only bipartisan candidate on the ballot, offering equal importance typing opportunity to bilateral hands of each voter.

23. No, it makes him the most progressive.
You know, the candidate most to the left.

24. Hi Avaistheone1, welcome to DU, and look-up the definitions of
"sinister". I think you'll get the joke.

26. Best joke ever!
My sister is left handed, and so is one of my best friends. I call them sinister every chance I get.

You can also type Star Wars with just one hand! :)
