You'd better keep her, you'll find it cheaper, than makin' whoopee

Ah, great old Hymn of the Faith, eh? :-)

Dunno why that one is stuck in my head. I''m sure that my brain cells have better things to do with their time...

Well, Edwards is still in it. That was a real breatholder for me, as it was obvious that it was bad news. But if Elizabeth still wants him to run, go for it man!

What was cool to see though is how they were interacting. Been a long time since I've seen a couple that... connected. (I'm sure there's a better word for it but I can't think of it right now.) They really are a team, and nothing of that has changed. And it seems that they believe that the country needs John. I guess the best thing to do is put your head down and go forward...

I spent a fair part of today reading over my notes for my class. Still have to get the handout put together. And make a bazillion copies- looks as though the class sold out. I hope I get a decent classroom.

Ah, a beer and a new issue of the _New Yorker_ awaits!

I like Edwards too- I think I voted for him in the last primary. And anyway he will bring some smart debate into the race, even if he doesn't win the primaries or ends up VP candidate again. I think an Obama/Edwards ticket would be dreamy..

I'm leaning Edwards/Obama personally. I like how he's spent his time the past couple of years. And I like his response on the Iraq war vote. Of course we're still a year and a half out...

Hiya! (it's Cathy) They did make me sign up for a dummy blog, but whatever.

I really like them both too... Yes, it would be great to have the first minority president, but... somehow Edwards feels more real. His wife certainly helps with that.

You know, I think there's a really good support person out there that she could talk to for support in all this: Heidi Heitkamp. Never heard of her? I'm not surprised. She's my first cousin once removed, and oh yeah, happened to run as the Dem for governor of North Dakota in 2000. Partway into the campaign, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she kept going. She lost, 45% to 55%, and I think it was because of the uncertainty of the cancer. Anyhow - another awesome woman who's campaigned with cancer.
