46. OK, I Should NOT have used the word "Substance"
Edited on Mon Dec-01-03 07:20 PM by burning bush
It has caused a lot of confusion.

I was tring to establish a separation between tangibles and intangibles. I defined "Substance" in that post as more than just positions. I included money and organization, two areas were I believe Edwards is relatively weak (Same with Clark).

If you read my post again, I believe I mentioned that Edwards says "all the right things." I've read up on many of his positions, and I like some of what Edwards says, and I like aspects of his image, but he's not the whole package. Nor is Clark.

Nor is Dean.

I think you misread me when you say I'm basing my choices on emotion.

In fact, I base my choices on logic AND emotion.

Leave emotion out of the equation, and you're making a mistake, IMO.

Thanks for your response, though! I agree we should not get too emotional, but (again) I add that we should not forget emotion.
