Finally? I guess I just don't understand where you are coming from. My personal opinion is that the range we have select from in this country is far too limited. Edwards was a fine candidate and I am sorry to see him go.

If I had to chose one to leave the race it would have been Billary Clinton, I shudder at the though of more corporatists in the White House.

The U.S. could do much worse than Edwards in the white house. He's a populist in the best sense of the word. He's very well thought of in my part of the country. He didn't have my vote, but that was only because the Democrats had three strong candidates this time around. I wonder if his supporters will go to another Democratic candidate or to the Republicans. I'd like to see him run again in 2012.

i certainly hate to see Edwards go, as he was my favorite amongst the democrats. i would like to see him run again in 2012, but clinton and obama will still be around, so the same will probably happen again, sadly.
