8. Any chance he can keep his Senate seat?
Assuming he's not on the Kerry ticket?

He's letting Erskine Bowles run for it.
...Bowles has earned it and Edwards wouldn't step on his toes.

13. I don't think so. I think there's another Dem on the ballot.

12. He was practically in Kerry's lap the last two debates.
This surprises you?

So why did he run? AND WHY COULDN'T HE AT LEAST WAIT UNTIL THE POLLS CLOSED.

5. My guess is that Kerry gave him the veep spot.
That's why he conceded so quickly.

7. I voted for Edwards today
What a good fight he's fought -- and I certainly hope his theme of "two Americas" is picked up by our nominee. It's positively inspirational and will bring out the base.

18. I salute John Edwards!
He ran a great campaign, but kerry ran a little bit better. And once he pulled ahead there was no catching him. JK is a seasoned, savvy politician and I pray to god he can defeat bush.

kerry/edwards in 04!
