Among my LeftAhead topics:
- My support for Edwards has only grown. If I thought writing endorsements actually helped, there'd be a Ryan's Take "I [Heart] Edwards" post. Luckily, I know endorsement posts are next to useless, especially in a Democratic primary, so no one will have to pretend to read it. Suffice it to say, I want a fiery POTUS who gets what's wrong with DC (lobbyist money) and that guy has been John Edwards for almost this entire campaign.
- There's little that's pissed me off in this race more than Barack Obama. (Memo for Obama: you'll never, in a million years, bring the Republican Party to the bargaining table. With their Authoritarian Minds, compromise is only a sign of weakness. We don't need less partisanship; we need to keep the DINO Dems in line.)
- I've never liked Hillary more. I don't care what the pundits say, Hillary getting a little weak in the voice yesterday was one of her finest moments ever. For the first time, we genuinely know why she's in this race: she actually wants to improve America. If only she had the right vision, I'd switch my support. At this point, I'd much prefer Hillary to Obama. A Moderate Democrat is better than a Defeatist Democrat any day of the week.
- Frack "Change." If I hear that word one more time, my ears will bleed. Pundits, candidates - will it ever stop? Has there ever been a campaign theme that's been more vague and intangible? Worst. Concept. Ever. Hillary, Edwards (and Romney, for that matter), need to get off the bandwagon ASAP. All Hillary, Edwards and Romney have done for the past few days is sell Obama's message. Talking about a meaningless "change" is a sure-fire way to get Obama nominated by February 5th, in a breeze.
