'cause it dont take much of the right thing

The food chain for the Democratic Presidential candidates has been established thus (Gallup Poll-11/07):
Top tier:
  • Clinton 50%
  • Obama 22%
  • Edwards 15%
2nd tier
  • Richardson 4%
bottom tier:
  • everyone else 1%
Edwards is making a smart move this week. On a 4 day West Cuast trip he's speaking before a League of Conservation Voters Forum Sat., 11/17 (I'll be there).

But even more importantly to the party base:
1:45 PM
Senator Edwards to join striking Writers Guild Members on the picket line in front of NBC Universal Studios
NBC Universal Studios
3000 W. Alameda Avenue
Burbank, CA

Excellent move. Good publicity, good photo ops, good cause to support. Right-wingers who hate unions will be outraged of course, but they're also outraged that as an attorney Edwards helped actual people sue actual corporations for actual damages for bad stuff they did.

Since corporations can do no wrong for the Right-wing base, he's already Satan. Or something.

Good idea, John.
