I’ll just preface this by saying that I am an Edwards supporter, but I found this both accurate and funny:
On the Democratic side, John Edwards is a tough call because he has the right idea. But there was a thing with Edwards from 2004 that I can’t seem to shake. And I’ve really, really tried. During one of the primary debates, Howard Dean stood up to answer a question. As was the campaign fashion at the time, Dean rolled up his sleeves. Then, behind him, I spotted John Edwards whose eyes suddenly widened at Dean’s sleeve-rolling as if to say, Oh crap, I should roll up my sleeves now or else I won’t be awesome like Howard. Then he quickly rolled up his sleeves.
