33. He's not public enemy #1 to me. I like the guy. But I forsee that vote being a BIG problem

for any nominee. That's not frothing at the mouth emotionalism, that's my rational analysis of the situation. The vote for the war was supposed to be a plus for Kerry in 2004, and it turned into the means through which his entire campaign was essentially rendered meaningless by the RW noise machine, from calling him a 'flip flopper' to saying "How can you run against Bush- and a war you yourself voted for?" Unless the situation regarding Iraq changes dramatically between now and then, I think Edwards will have a tough time getting around that kind of thing as well. Not as tough as Hillary, since he's done a better job of distancing himself since then, but tough nonetheless.

Of course, if things change significantly with Iraq... like (against all odds) Bush gets some sense and ends the entire clusterfuck, all bets are off.
