The idea of an Edwards/Obama ticket makes me extremely excited. I understand lou's comment of an Edwards/Obama ticket being inexperienced but I say this, the Republicans will nominate John McCain (I am almost certain) the definition of an Washington insider. If Edwards/Obama run as fresh, new, bright, and young, they can trounce on any Republican that is nominated. If McCain is the nominee then lets compare Edwards and Obama to McCain. Edwards is 53 years old, compassionate, smart and full of pratical ideas that America needs. He has detailed plans and is running an honnest campaign. Obama is 45 and a rockstar with great ideas. He is the leading crusader on cleaning up Washington. Both of these men symbolize freshness, and the breath of air we all need. If they run as the a "Fresh Start" ticket they could win. They are both able to be president. McCain has been a senator for about a million years and is in bed with Jerry Fallwell and George Bush, people he denouced in 2000. He is flip floping and is for the Iraq war. He will be 72 years old in 2008. He will be the oldest president ever. Edwards and Obama would be seen as energetic and new, and McCain would be seen as old and tired.

yeah you to brother nish, yeah he smashed his opposition last time around, i think 68% or more. his opponent wasn't anything but its still a good showing. hes supported progressive policies but has to walk a fine line on immigration. the child of a boston business man and a mexican mother could easily be pigeon-holed in our border state.

now who else here is already thinking caucus????

Hey Keegan-good to hear from you. Has Bill R been making any waves in the west? I haven't heard much about him other than his resume? Anything politically speaking?

I think you bring up a good point regarding experience Lou, but as a minor point, Kerry had tons of experience foriegn and domestic that only worked ultimately against him because he was seen as a flip-flopper by the undecided voters. So whether experience matters to the voting public I am not sure. I also agree that Bill Richardson would make an interesting prospect. Did you mean Edwards or Obama as Pres and Richardson as VP? I don't know about Gore either but I do think that people (voters and supporters) are going to have to start making up their minds sooner rather than later.

Bill's comin up strong. Watch out, the man is tackling North Korea and proving himself a world leader. He would help pull hispanics and folks in the west. But he's trailed the field in almost every poll. But if these young bucks go at it, they might clear the way for someone to sneak in...

Good points, I don't know about Al Gore though. Bill Richardson is very interesting

2006-12-20T13:52:00.000-05:00

My concern about Edwards/Obama is inexperience. Edwards has one term in the Senate and Obama less. Now, do I think someone who has spent half their life inside the Beltway is the only type of person who can be President? Absolutely not. But experience counts in terms of who people will be comfortable voting for and a ticket with this little would even give an idealist like me slight pause.

I really like both Edwards and Obama and it's going to be a tough choice. Even tougher if Al Gore gets into the race. How about a ticket of Gore (ton of experience) and Obama. Or either Edwards or Obama with Bill Richardson, who has been a governor, Cabinet member, U.N. Ambassador, and Congressman, and is Hispanic to boot!
