    In 2004 I wrote a piece  called "Defining Leadership".  I noticed that Kerry was constantly trying ideas out.  Also, when he saw an issue working for someone else, he would add it to his list.  But John Edwards was out in front with a vision of healing our great nation and making it one again. Through this example we would regain our leadership position in the world.  I saw a big dog in the Iditarod, not someone who practices the spaghetti theory of politics.  Throw it up and see if it plays in Peoria.  That's a politician.  And we have way too many of those.

      and on poverty in particular he was years ahead of the curve. He was talking about it years before Katrina. Even now, who talks about Katrina and poverty in our party? No one. Who talks about unions? Morality?

      It's totally unbelievable. And especially the morality piece in the discussion. That's the issue that I think makes him so electable. Even if people disagree with his positions, he's still a reasonable choice because he has credibility and voters will trust him. That's the key to winning.
