Just think about it. He'll force Obama to address the issues that progressives care about, but won't be a real threat to taking the nomination.
Plus, I think the lad's got quite a bit of spare time on his hands anyway.

What do you say? John Edwards in 2012!!

2. Ok.. You're crazy
What makes you think that ANYONE would talk about ANYTHING but Edward's transgressions? There would not be one peep about policy to be found anywhere.

8. Yeah, any challenger would reduce Obama's chances of re-election.
There's never been a Presidential incumbent who benefited in the general from having had a challenger in the primary.

5. So what if Obama talked about it all?
So if he were forced to talk about a thing, that helps bring it about?

The usual magical thinking regarding the all powerful bully pulpit.

6. Any challenger will divert attention and resources away from the general campaign
thereby weakening Obama in the long run.

And John Edwards is pathetic.

OK. That's crazy.
Are you happy now?

If I get so pissed at Obama that I would vote for Kermit the Frog in the primary, maybe I could consider Edwards. But I'd still rather vote for Kermit than a creep like Edwards.

26. I saw Edwards in person at a state convention, he was so good looking.
He would be the best looking president we ever had.

Maybe we could overlook the jail thing.

The republicans that would be running against him are all crazy.

An Edwards run would seal the deal for a GOP president. We have too much at stake.

34. We don't need a cash draining primary this cycle.
Citizen's United is going to provide Republicans with an unlimited source of cash to market their message and character assassinate Obama in the process. This recession is going to hurt Democrats particularly hard...I sure don't have the money I had available in past election cycles...I'm sure I'm not alone with this problem, either.

I'm all for hi-profile Democrats coming together to debate the issues. Probably won't get the corporate media to cover, but the internet would be an excellent platform, especially if we could vote online for the winning solutions. That would suck some of the focus and media oxygen off the Republicans and the viewer feedback could help Democrats tune their message for the 2012 elections.

Edwards is such a fraud. Forget about his alleged crimes and moral issues. He spent the entire last campaign running to the left of Hillary and Obama. His positions in 2008 weren't the same positions he had in 2004, nor as a senator.

75. Happy to oblige -- you are definitely crazy.
1) Any challenger weakens the incumbent for the general.
2) Edwards pissed all over whatever moral authority he had with progressives with his stunt.
3) He's far too busy trying not to be indicted for criminal violations of campaign finance laws.

76. Will you be in charge of scheduling his campaign events around his court appearances
for misuse of campaign funds? This is without a doubt one of the more idiotic posts I've seen.

80. Well, it is not like it would damage his political career
You have to have a political career to do it damage.

83. 1. John Edwards is a "third way" Democrat just like Obama - 2. I'm afraid he is washed up

84. Yeah, sure. And Elliot Spitzer can be his running mate.
That's the way to go if you want the Left to be lost in the mists of the wilderness.

92. Um, no. He's a fraud. Four years ago, I might have thought differently.
But not today. Not after the John Kerry story. That was the straw that broke the camel's back.
